The Chai, Baby! Top Five: Why Drink Tea?

Is that a cup of coffee in your hand, baby? Hey, we don't judge -- although we will sass you a little. Here's our challenge: every day, replace just one of your coffees with -- you guessed it -- a cup of tea.

Why? So glad you asked, baby!

1. Tea is chock-full of antioxidants that protect your body from the effects of aging.

2. Tea is hydrating. Your body needs fluid, baby, so drink up!

3. Tea can protect your body from cancer. Research increasingly shows that polyphenols (the antioxidants in tea) have a cancer-fighting effect.

4. No calories, baby! Choose the right tea, skip the milk and sweetener, and you can indulge in utterly guilt-free deliciousness!

5. Tea contains theanine, an amino acid that simultaneously improves alertness and reduces stress. Wow!

Are you sold? We thought so!
