Red tea is a very healthy drink that relieves a lot of symptoms like colds, flues, allergies, hay fever, and even asthma in infants and children. Today there are a lot of children and infants that can not digest cows milk. Some grow out of it when they get older, and yet others will have this allergic reaction to cows milk, which also includes any dairy product for the rest of their lives. Those children and even adults are what we call lactose intolerant. Since red tea has a good source of calcium, you might find that this tea may be the alternative to dairy products. Red tea is easy to digest and extremely good for the stomach amongst other health benefits. Red Tea also contains very low amounts of tannin which plays a very important part in our bodies to give us that extra iron boost that we all need. Red tea also contains fluoride, calcium and magnesium for growing strong teeth and bones. And the lpha hydroxyl acid and zinc in Red Tea helps to beautify our skin.

But not only does Red Tea have such strong benefits, it is also an excellent beverage that can be drank cold, hot, or warm. This tea can be used in milk, and cooking by subbing the tea instead of using straight water. For the children's lunches for school, instead of fruit drinks or soft drinks which are loaded with sugar, additives , and even colorants, make them a Red Tea beverage instead. And not only will this drink quench their thirst, but look at the other benefits these children will get.

Not Just For Children, For Adults Too
This tea is also good for adults just like growing children. When we take a look at growing children and even babies, Iron plays an important part in our bodies.Women require added iron, so the decreased tannin can play an important role in improving the iron level of the diet.
Iron plays a huge role in our body. You see iron forms a protein in our red blood cells called HEMOGLOBIN which carries oxygen to every cell throughout our body. Without iron our bodies would not be able to function and the lack of iron can cause serious health problems. Now why would I say this?
Well...because the lack of iron would not be able to produce enough protein (Hemoglobin) therefore, not enough oxygen is traveling to the muscles and brain will make you very tired.
