Like green tea, black tea contains antioxidants, though the oxidation process required to create black tea reduces the amount of antioxidants.

A recent study on people drinking three or more cups of tea a day found that tea has a positive impact blood pressure, reducing the risk of stroke. Other studies have suggested that tea helps reduce stress, improving the heart. Further dedical research suggests black tea promotes healthy teeth, skin and bones.
