Dr Carrie Rushton
‘Plant compounds called flavonoids are what make tea such a healthy brew,’ explains Dr Carrie Ruxton, a nutritionist and member of the Tea Advisory Panel.

‘They work as antioxidants to protect your body cells against damage, which is the first step in preventing diseases like cancer.
Flavonoids also help control blood pressure and they’re anti-microbial too – they reduce bugs in your mouth to keep dental decay at bay.’
