Staying Hydrated with Tea

Though the summer heat is disappearing, it's important to remember to stay hydrated every day. While water is the best thing we can drink, tea (iced or hot) is also a great way to quench your thirst.

Because tea has so many health benefits — weight control, prevention of heart disease and diabetes and more — it's certainly a great alternative to sugar-filled beverages with empty calories. Tea is the second-most consumed beverage in the world (behind water) and every country enjoys it differently.

One of the other benefits of tea over other beverages is that the caffeine content is relatively low, especially compared to coffee or caffeinated sodas. An eight-ounce cup of tea contains just 40 milligrams of caffeine while the same amount of coffee has 80 to 120 milligrams.

Check out this article for a few more details on the benefits of sipping tea throughout the day to keep your body well hydrated and healthy!
