After analyzing the data of neuro test, imaging results and lifestyle behavior, team concluded that people who drink green tea, black tea 4 times in a week for 25 years have better brain region which was interconnected in efficient way.

Taking the example of road and letting brain regions as destinations or connections between brain regions as roads.

Feng Lei states that if the roads are more organised, then the movement of vehicles and passengers will be more efficient with less resources usage.

Likewise, when the connection between brain regions are organised, information processing will be more efficient.

He further added that previous studies published in 2017 showed that regular tea drinkers have better cognitive system than non drinkers.

Our current study on brain structure supports indirectly to previous by showing the positive effects of tea on brain organisation by improving the connections between brain regions.
