Can you really drink more tea to reduce your risk of death?

Study Summary

There is a body of research which suggests that tea consumption can reduce the risk of death.

One specific study, which relied on data from half of a million people, found that drinking 2-3 cups of black tea reduced the risk of death by 9-13% when compared to to not drinking any tea.

The Hearty Take

Study after study has echoed these findings. However, it is important to understand that this is correlation and not causation! Although, research suggests that tea type may not matter. Aim to drink 2+ cups of tea per day!
