I've talked a lot about antioxidants, and the potential health benefits of drinking tea. I've said you should never put milk in your tea, and some of the benefits of tea exclude using sugar. But one thing I don't think I have talked about is lemon in your tea.
It is not uncommon to see a beautifully filled cup with a sliver of lemon on the side. There's more to that than you may realize. Studies have shown that adding citrus juice to your cup of tea increases the amount of antioxidants your body absorbs from the tea!
That is just delicious in so many ways!

English Teatime, with lemon, of course!
