Flavonols in tea can ‘control’ hypertension and cut heart disease risk – how much to drink

Dr Bond said: “Heart disease and its risk factors like cholesterol, blood pressure and blood vessel function develop over many years. 

“No drink or food will likely act immediately. Reducing the risk of heart disease is a ‘slow burn’ so it’s important to develop beverage and dietary patterns over days, weeks, months and years. 

“In terms of boosting flavonol intakes, benefits should be seen in the long term.”

With the beginning of a new year, this is the perfect time to switch up your habits and tea could be a simple way to start.
