Americans Are Catching On To The Health Benefits Of Tea Drinking

April 2, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Coffee is still the most popular beverage in the U.S., but tea is rapidly catching up, thanks to the continuous flow of studies touting its many health benefits. Tea drinking has definitely been on the rise, according to USDA figures: nine gallons consumed per person in 2009 compared to 7.3 gallons in 1980. Coffee consumption has steadily declined from 26.7 gallons a year per person in 1980 to 23.3 gallons in 2009. Studies in recent years have shown that tea plays a role in preventing heart disease, burning calories and even thwarting some types of cancer, though the evidence for this latter benefit is so far less compelling.
