Broadly speaking, that means for each cup of tea drank, your risk is reduced by 4%.

The study also found that the benefits are most prevalent in people over the age of 60.

A cuppa is the go-to move for Irish people when faced with any event in life. Bad news? Console yourselves with a cuppa. Good news? Celebrate with a nice cup of tea and a biscuit. Problem to solve? You will think more clearly after a cup of tea. You get the idea…

Tea is a staple of Irish life and the first thing offered to guests when they visit your home.

It is everywhere! And we love it!

So of course, we welcome the news with open arms that all this tea consumption is doing us some good.

Finally, something we can eat (shouldn’t that be drink?) without feeling guilty about the harm it could be doing to our health.
