I think its different for everyone...I mean drinking tea to destress wont work if you dont like tea...drinking tea at work to keep your stress level in check wont work if it makes you sleepy..I only drink tea at night if Im not feeling well or need to unwind adn my husband only has a cup of tea on very rare occasions to help him sleep...

yes it is. besides, it has many other qualities. check this out. A. Tea ( and fruits and vegetables) are excellent for preventing heart disease and they help in eradicating any existing heart disease:v Free radicals are poisonous chemical agents produced during the normal functioning of the body. They are linked to the development of several disease processes like cancer, coronary artery disease and heart attack, cataracts, etc. Constant and persistent long-term exposure to free radicals triggers several disease processes. v The body has an excellent in-built protective system for inactivating and destroying these free radicals. But this system also requires the help of antioxidants present in food, to mop up the harmful free radicals. This is where tea, fruits and vegetables come in. v Antioxidants act by destroying the free radicals. Fruits and vegetables are rich source of antioxidants. So is tea. Black, green, and oolong teas exhibit this effect but no effect is seen with herbal teas.
