Fruity and Refreshing

This fruity green tea is a refreshing way to quench your thirst while loading up on important antioxidants. Green tea is a very nutritious beverage choice because it is high in antioxidants called catechins that can help prevent cellular damage. Raspberries provide this drink with natural sweetness and a cancer-fighting compound called ellagitannin.
