Black Tea Reduces Stress Hormone Levels

A new study conducted at the University of London and published in the journal Psychopharmacology has shown that black tea reduces blood levels of stress hormone cortisol.

In the study, 75 young male regular tea drinkers were split into two groups and monitored for six weeks.
They all gave up their normal tea, coffee and caffeinated beverages, and then one group was given a fruit-flavoured caffeinated tea mixture made up of the constituents of an average cup of black tea.
