– Healthier Bones and Blood: Without milk or natural sweeteners, English breakfast tea contains almost no calories and zero sugar, making it an ideal choice for those with diabetes and anyone keeping an eye on daily caloric intake. It also contains vitamin B, which helps the body create new red blood cells, a vital component for good health. The phosphorus and magnesium found in English breakfast tea are important for strong, resilient bones.
