Here’s something that might induce you spit up your tea.
According to meat scientist Dr Quan Vuong, from the University of Newcastle in Australia, microwaving your cup of tea be essential to getting more health benefits from the beverage.
He’s done years of research on the matter, but still, people aren’t taking it well.
“Microwaving is one of the advanced technologies to get more bioactive compounds from the products, ” he told ABC News .
According to Dr Vuong, the best tasting and most effective method of microwaving your tea is putting hot water in the cup with a teabag, then heating it in the microwave for 30 seconds on half power, and finally letting it sit for a minute.
The method reportedly triggers 80 per cent of the caffeine, theanine and polyphenol compounds. The long-term consumption of polyphenols, an antioxidant, has been linked to protection against the developed at cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and neurodegenerative diseases.
For some( like the British, plainly ), the news goes as a little bit of nope , nope , nope.
Us Brits are the experts at tea brewing and I can assure you the committee is SACRILEGE.

I will consistently and whole-heartedly repudiate any further campaigns to microwave tea instead of using a kettle.

Vuong has also investigated how other meat, such as leftover lemon( pomace ), can boast additional antioxidants after being vaporized in the microwave.
But for tea at the least, it seems like some people is less than happy to do without.
