Tea soothes a troubled mind, say scientists

1.  The research involved 75 young men who were regular tea drinkers. All gave up normal tea, coffee and decaffeinated drinks for six weeks and drank one of two "tea" mixtures, four times a day instead.

2.  Many people believe that drinking tea helps them relax after facing the stresses of everyday life. However, scientific evidence is quite limited.

3.  The British tea market worth £707 million in 1999, has fallen to £623 million in the face of competition from coffee and fruit teas.
