Drink black and green tea to sharpen your brain as they both have health benefits, but green tea has the most with three to four times more antioxidants.

Tea leaves are packed with compounds that are able to penetrate the blood-brain barrier and block neuronal damage.

The best way to drink it to get the most benefit is black, as if you add milk it could reduce the teas antioxidant activity by as much as 25%.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.


    1. You love it don’t you Tom? I think your a little more experimental than me – every time I think I will try a new one I change my mind at the last minute and ask for an English 🙂


  1. The only black tea I drink is Chinese tea.
    I absolutely must have milk with my cuppas, lots of it so it’s kinda silky and smooth.
    Well, milk is good for the bones, right?
