A tasty way to feel good

Plants have been used as medicinal herbs throughout history and there is already scientific evidence of how tea and herbal infusions, when consumed daily, may be beneficial in some areas of clinical and preventive health. The benefits of tea have been studied for over a decade.

Unsweetened teas and infusions made from boiled tap water contain 99.5% water, zero grams of added sugar, and zero calories, making them an excellent part of a well-balanced diet that can help support a healthy lifestyle*.

But there’s more. Tea is one of the top sources of naturally occurring bioactives called flavonoids. Drinking two or more cups a day of unsweetened black or green tea, for instance, is one of the simplest and most effective ways of consuming the intake of flavonoids recommended by scientific experts**.
