Green Tea is Healthier With Citrus

Give Your Green Tea a Boost With Citrus

In case you were feeling like your green tea wasn't already healthy enough, scientists have found a way to make the wonder juice even healthier. According to research, adding citrus juices to green tea may increase catechins — antioxidants believe to be responsible for green tea's health benefits— levels by more than five times, while vitamin C boosted absorbable levels of catechins by up to 13 times. So moral of the story? Think about squeezing a little lemon into your green tea tomorrow. Not only will it add a little extra flavor to your tea, but you'll be boosting its antioxidant power as well.

Do you think this applies to tea that comes already infused with citrus, such as the lemon-green tea varieties available at the supermarket? My favorite green tea is a honey-lemon-ginsing tea by celestial seasonings. I also enjoy steeping some orange zest in my green tea.

I usually put mint leaves in mine, but I think I might try the lemon. It sounds pretty yummy.

I always squeeze a lemon in my green tea or I mix it with a fruity flavored tea.
