Freshen Your Breath For those days you forget your breath mints (or forgot to brush your teeth), a cup of polyphenol-rich black tea can save you from embarrassing bad breath. The antioxidants can stop plaque and other buildup from adhering to your teeth. Plus, if you're game to swish and spit your tea (not as relaxing as simply enjoying a cup), a study by Pace University found that rinsing with black tea can inhibit bacteria growth and destroy the acids that cause tooth decay. Just remember that tea, like coffee, can stain your pearly whites, so don't even think of using it as a toothpaste replacement.
