However that’s not the only reason she drinks tea. She has used her talk show as a platform to rave about new research linking oolong tea to weight loss.

Actor Ben Barnes Uses Tea to Relieve Sore Throat Pain during Interview

Metro Boston News writer Dorothy Robinson was fortunate enough to be among those who had the opportunity to interview British born actor, Ben Barnes, just prior to the opening of his breakout movie Prince Caspian.

Robinson tells us that she discovered a tired but elated and always charming Ben suffering from a severe throat infection and discloses that he spent the time not only — chatting about his discovery by a casting agent while he was in the play “The History Boys”, his subsequent audition and the movie — but soothing his discomfort with sips of tea.
