If you have been to Ireland, you will know the depth of flavour the Irish want in their morning cup! The Irish Breakfast is a table full of bacon, eggs, white pudding, beans, leftovers, toast...and big, strong cups of Irish Breakfast Tea.
Irish Breakfast Tea is usually a mix of several black teas, frequently a blend of Assam teas and Ceylon teas. It is just one of the most popular blended teas, usual in Tea culture in Ireland.
When tea was first carried from China to Ireland in the mid-18th century, it was mainly introduced to the affluent due to its high expense and low demand. Nevertheless, throughout the mid-19th century, Irish breakfast Tea came conveniently available to those of both High and lower socioeconomic classes.
The Health Benefits of Irish Breakfast Tea
Here are the health benefits that the Irish Breakfast Tea possesses.
It Contains Anti-Cancer Properties
The Irish breakfast tea is extraordinarily rich in antioxidants such as catechin, quercetin as well as phytochemical which counters the free radicals that cause terminal diseases such as stroke or cancer. Those antioxidants mute the cancer-causing DNAs.
It is Good for the Overall Cardiovascular Health
The Irish breakfast tea also carries the potential to prevent the start of cardiac diseases through inflammation, which is done primarily by quercetin. Quercetin as well as catechin also lowers down the lower density lipoprotein or “bad proteins” that hardens the arteries to make way for stroke as well as cardiac arrests. Meanwhile, vitamin B1 as well as thiamine from this tea ensures a stabile blood flow which is the key to a healthy heart.
Normalizes Blood Pressure Level
Blood pressure levels can be normalized through the help of quercetin.
Ideal for Weight Loss
The Irish breakfast tea also turns out to be ideal for weight loss because it contains the flavonoids just like in Ceylon tea. Flavonoids help boost metabolism. Meanwhile, the Irish breakfast tea also contains the metabolism-friendly vitamin B1 that transforms carbohydrate compounds into energy.
This type of breakfast tea is thought to prevent the symptoms of certain allergies such as hives, runny noses, or watery eyes. All of this becomes possible thanks to its quercetin content that is believed to have a positive impact in retracting the release of histamines that triggers allergies. However, more research and scientific findings are yet to be found to better support these ideas.
The allergy controlling ability of this beverage has also made it useful for people with asthma by minimizing their symptoms of asthma.
Maintains a Healthy Skin
Antioxidants contained inside the Irish tea is also beneficial for protecting the skin from free radicals and ensure cell functions in return. Drinking a few cups of Irish tea from week to week also helps in reducing wrinkles as well as premature aging.
Alleviates Dental Problems
The Irish breakfast tea also contains magnesium as well as fluoride found inside Assam tea within its blend, which combats the growth of bacteria that threatens oral health. In the long term, dental issues such as cavities or unhealthy gum can be prevented.
It Relieves Stress and Provides Relaxation
Just like the typical tea, the Irish breakfast tea also helps in soothing your nerves, calming down your emotions while driving away tension.
An Ideal Source of Caffeine
This tea contains decent amount of caffeine, although not as much as in coffee. Caffeine is useful to sharpen and improve the performance of the brain when taken in moderate amounts. A cup of Irish breakfast tea is said to have half or a third caffeine as to those found in a cup of coffee.
Ceylon (Sri Lankan) FBOP is a Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe Tea. It is a semi leaf with some tip. The Ceylon Pekoe BOP is a well twisted semi leaf tea generally from the low country and has a malty taste.
