Tea keeps you hydrated

17th June 2010

A new study has suggested that a cup of tea is just as good as a glass of water at keeping you hydrated.

Dietician Dr Carrie Ruxton asked 21 men to drink mugs of tea over a 12-hour period, or a similar amount of plain, warm water. On another day, the tea-drinkers were given water and vice versa. Blood samples were taken and the men's urine was collected and tested and found that tea does not bother your bladder any more than plain water.
