Where's the original?

This raises more questions than it answers. Not just the chicken-or-egg of the first comment above, but others like whether the comparison might be to a population encompassing some altogether less wholesome alternatives, whether the tea is associated with something social, or indeed whether the role of the tea is anything more than avoiding dehydration or providing necessary breaks.

If the study addresses these questions, what does it find? If not, I don't think you can really claim it tells us anything.
