There are no shortage of studies these days trumpeting the health benefits of drinking tea. A new one, recently published in the New England Journal of Flabbergastery, is more comprehensive than most. I won't go into all the details - look it up and read them for yourself, if you must. Here are just a few of the divers maladies and conditions drinking tea is said to provide relief from:
Twittering, gout, loose sphincter muscles, leprosy, jabbering, broken sacroiliac, dropsy, random and uncontrolled hollering, lycanthropy, goiter, pleurisy, bubonic plague, priapism, boanthropy, sagging testicles, whooping cough, cradle cap and loutishness.
