Bravo Filipino | Can Milk Tea be a Healthy Drink? | Tea is the second most popular drink in the world after water. It is drunk all over the world by people of unique backgrounds and ethnicities, shapes, and sizes. But, why exactly is tea so popular to so many different people?
The benefits of tea have been well-documented over the years. Studies have found teas may help with cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Teas have also shown characteristics that help encourage weight loss, lower cholesterol, and increase mental alertness. It even has anti-microbial qualities.
What has made tea skyrocket in popularity is the sudden boom in milk tea consumption. Milk tea is a lot easier to drink for many people compared to regular tea because of its characteristic sweetness. Often sweetened with syrups and other flavors, milk tea is also enjoyed with sinkers such as tapioca balls known as boba.
