This delicious black tea comes from the Republic of Mauritius, an island nation in the Indian Ocean about 2,000 kilometers (1,200 miles) off the southeast coast of the African continent. Mauritius ranked second in an air quality index released by the World Health Organization in 2011. Because of its tropical coastal regions and forests in the mountainous areas, the land produces a tea unlike others.
“Black tea contains 2% to 4% caffeine, which affects thinking and alertness, increases urine output, and may reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. It also contains antioxidants and other substances that might help protect the heart and blood vessels.”
