Tea and Hydration

Top up with tea

You may be surprised to learn that a massive 45-70% of our body is made up of water, that is why fluid is essential for life.

It's important therefore to replace fluids that are lost through day to day activities, and why doctors recommend that we drink at least 2.5 pints/1.5 litres of fluid per day to prevent dehydration.
