    Or is it?

    From the SMH article:

    "We found a study which said that an increased intake of flavonoids - which are in tea - from various sources resulted in an increased risk of rheumatoid arthritis."
    From the BBC article:

    The work in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition dispels the common belief that tea dehydrates.

    Tea not only rehydrates as well as water does, but it can also protect against heart disease and some cancers, UK nutritionists found.

    Experts believe flavonoids are the key ingredient in tea that promote health.
