Suggested steeping time: 2 minutes, 30 seconds to 5 minutes

Tea leaves are stuffed with valuable compounds. Research shows that flavanols, for example, catechins and epicatechins, found in both green and dark teas, help stifle aggravation and control plaque develop in veins. Drinking tea may improve vascular reactivity, which manages how well veins change in accordance with push. Concurring an analysis of different tea-related investigations distributed in the European Journal of Epidemiology in 2015, drinking some tea daily decreases your danger of coronary illness by 27 percent, cardiovascular demise by 26 percent, and aggregate mortality by 24 percent. Polyphenolic cell reinforcements in tea may likewise ensure against diabetes, depression, and liver infection.

Past research has demonstrated that it takes 100 to 150 seconds to extricate a large portion of the polyphenol content from green and dark tea takes off. As indicated by a study published in 2016 in the journal Beverages, you can get more polyphenols into your drink on the off chance that you enable the leaves more opportunity to soak. However, the result may not be justified regardless of the additional exertion: Most of the compounds the researchers measured after 10 minutes of steeping were extracted in the first 5 minutes.

Sang argues not to wait long time to drink your tea. Antioxidants are somewhat temperamental, which implies they will in the end separate and lose their healthy properties subsequent to mixing with water. “After you remove the compounds from the tea pack, you can not keep the solution for a really long time,” he says. “Since these compounds are not steady, they will be oxidized. So on the off chance that you brew it early in the day, at that point you savor it the evening, that is bad.” This oxidation can happen even after the tea leaves are expelled from the cup, so if your tea has been sitting out for a couple of hours, it’s smarter to mix another cluster than to pop it in the microwave.
