Black Tea: It’s best to use brewed tea that’s been refrigerated so you don’t have to wait for it brew and then cool down. I like to use an English Breakfast tea for this recipe since it has a nice strong flavor to keep up with all the competing ingredients. Although truthfully you don’t taste the tea. But you still get the health benefits of tea.
Tea is high in polyphenols, a potent antioxidant. Antioxidants have proven health benefits to cardiovascular health.
Black tea contains an amino acid called l-theanine, which is unique to tea and has some very interesting effects on the brain. L-theanine increases alpha brain waves inducing a calm and deeply relaxed state. Combined with the caffeine, which is about half the amount found in coffee, the overall effect is a focused calm.
