Daily tea physical activity

Women who drink a daily cuppa are more likely to be physically active, University of Queensland researchers have found.

The UQ School of Human Movement and Nutrition Sciences study found that women who drank one to two cups of tea or coffee per day were more likely to meet the recommended levels of moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) than women who consumed less.

The study is published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.
