Tea and health

drink tea instead of red wine for polyphenols

Red wine is considered healthy because of its high levels of polyphenols.

But 360 ml tea (black tea in the example) contains the same amount of polyphenols as a glass of red wine, according to a researcher in the documentary "The truth about alcohol" (found on Netflix).

Another reason to use tea as a food drink instead of wine.
