It is a rich source of antioxidants and bioactive compounds, such as xanthines, flavonoids, caffeine, proteins, and amino acids. These compounds minimize the cell damage caused by free radicals, reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, support weight loss, maintain bone health, boost immunity, and improve digestion. In addition, the anti-cariogenic, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic properties of tea are effective for colon, oesophageal, and lung cancers and urinary stones. Owing to these benefits, tea has become one of the most widely consumed traditional drinks across GCC countries.
