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 benefits.
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.
