Good news for tea drinkers

Tea is good for the heart, scientists have found.

They have discovered that drinking tea protects against heart disease by improving the function of the artery walls.

Tea contains antioxidants called flavonoids that may help prevent cholesterol damaging arteries.
But the new research suggests that might not be the only possible benefit from the drink.

It appears to improve the function of the linings of the artery wall - but only if you drink four cups of black tea a day.
