Black Tea vs Green Tea

Green Tea has stolen the limelight in recent years owing mostly to its Green Tea benefits. However, there are, indeed, Black Tea benefits that one can experience with our Pluckley Tea 500g Loose Tea, as well as other exceptional qualities.

Pluckley Tea, like any other Black Tea (and Green Tea, for that matter!), can improve one's everyday way of life in a multitude of ways. According to the latest scientific research, a blend such as this one can improve cardiovascular health; support the immune system; boost the metabolism; aid digestion; and reduce the risks of developing type-2 diabetes.

Furthermore, and despite Green Tea becoming increasingly sought-after, Blacks Teas such as Pluckley Tea reign supreme when it comes to sales. The latest statistics suggest that Black Tea accounts for 78% of the world's Tea consumption. Global Green Tea consumption, on the other hand, amounts to 20%.

Pluckley Tea vs All Black Teas

Why choose Pluckley Tea over any other Black Tea? For starters, The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company guarantee quality in every cup of Pluckley Tea enjoyed. Furthermore, Pluckley Tea is part of who we're as a company.

It was the brainchild of our owner, Mr Richard Smith, upon his return from India in the 1970s. He brought back with him chests of ten-thousand Tea bags, which with the help of his mother and co-owner, Mrs Janet Smith, he packed into packages of either 40 or 80 Tea Bags. In 1982, Richard and Janet founded The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company in Pluckley, Kent. We're still here today, and we're still packing Pluckley Tea.

Benefits of Pluckley Tea 

This will put a smile on your face: Pluckley Tea can improve oral health! How? The answers come from a collaborative study conducted in conjunction with the College of Dentistry at the University of Iowa and the Institute of Odontology at Göteborg University in Sweden.

Participants in the US division used Black Tea to rinse their mouth with for 30 seconds, five times, waiting three minutes between each rinse to simulate the effect of sipping Tea. Meanwhile, the Swedish division saw participants rinse their mouth with Black Tea for one minute, ten times a day. Both co-operating studies noted that the more participants rinsed, the more their plaque and bacteria levels fell.

This is because of the polyphenolic compounds present in all types if Black Tea. These antioxidants can kill or suppress cavity-causing bacteria from either growing or producing acid. Furthermore, the Tea also affects the bacterial enzymes while preventing them from forming the sticky-like material that binds plaque to teeth.
