Monk gets the scoop on the negative effects of milk on tea

The press is reporting research findings from Germany that show that when added to tea, milk wrecks tea's health benefits.

(This explains why the correlation between tea drinking and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer is "seen most clearly in east Asia, [but] not in [other] tea-loving countries such as the U.K."—it's 'cause the bloody Brits are always putting bloody milk in their bloody tea, isn't it.)

However, readers of this blog already knew that about tea and milk from a posting I wrote last month.

Actually, last month's posting referenced a study that was done way back in 1996. The German study simply reinforces those findings.
