"Green Tea is so healthy, We should have been drinking it long ago!"
Green Tea is healthy because of the large concentrations of powerful, natural antioxidants, and a variety of vitamins and minerals. The antioxidants are 10-25 times stronger than vitamin C and E. One cup of green tea has more antioxidants than a serving of spinach, broccoli, carrots or a leafy salad.
