The study, published in the journal Aging-US, revealed that drinking tea reduces the anomalies of structural contact networks in both parts of people's brains. However, researchers have not found any significant effect of drinking tea on the network of system cells in both parts of the brain.

"In short our study has extensively investigated the effects of drinking tea on brain connectivity (on both regional and global scales) using multi-modal imaging data," said study co-author Li Feng. Along with this, "we have provided the first such evidence, that drinking tea has shown a positive contribution in improving brain structure and making the organization of nerve cell networks more efficient.''
