Besides caffeine boost, there are other prosas well, says research study. According to the recent study led by the National University of Singapore, researchers disclosed that those who drink tea have well-organized mindset than those who don't.

The findings, published in the scientific journal Aging, found that participants who consumed either green, oolong or black tea at least four times a week for about 25 years had brain regions that were "interconnected in a more efficient way" than those who did not drink tea.

The team, including researchers from the University of Essex and the University of Cambridge in the UK, recruited 36 adults aged 60 and above, and gathered data about their health, lifestyle, and psychological well-being.

Past studies have also demonstrated that tea intake is beneficial to human health, and the positive effects include mood improvement and cardiovascular disease prevention, researchers said.

"We have shown in our previous studies that tea drinkers had better cognitive function as compared to non-tea drinkers. Our current results relating to brain network indirectly support our previous findings by showing that the positive effects of regular tea drinking are the result of improved brain organization brought about by preventing disruption to interregional connections," Feng added.
