Tea is in. The average American drinks some 155 cups a year. That makes tea the country’s fourth most popular beverage, after water, soft drinks, and coffee.
There is no doubt that tea is an invigorating drink – probably due to how much caffeine is in tea (about half the caffeine of coffee).
And the national waistline would be far better off if we replaced some of that soda with tea (provided we sipped it with little or no sugar).
