Good news for tea drinkers: Drinking it was associated with a longer lifespan.

The consumption of black tea is known for its many benefits, including an improvement in heart and intestinal health and a drop in blood pressure and blood sugar. Researchers from the National Cancer Institute, which is one of the National Institutes of Health of the United Kingdom, recently discovered that people who consumed two cups of tea or more per day had a risk of death of 9 to 13% lower than that of people who did not drink, all causes of death combined.

"A higher consumption of tea has also been associated with a lower risk of death of cardiovascular disease, ischemic heart disease and stroke, said study authors. The association was observed independently of the preferred temperature of tea, the addition of milk or sugar and genetic variations affecting the speed at which people metabolize caffeine.

The study involved nearly 500,000 men and women aged 40 to 69 in the UK. Researchers also noted that the results suggest that black tea "even at higher contribution levels" can "be part of a healthy diet".

previous studies having found an association between a higher tea consumption and a lower risk of death have mainly focused on Asian populations, which commonly drink green tea, studies on black tea that have given mixed results.

The complete results of the study were published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.
