Gentle Organic Lemon Ginger Green Tea
The light and lovely lemon scent of our Organic Lemon Ginger Green Tea provides an elegant finish that makes a delicious beverage, either hot or iced.
Our premium, non-oxidized, organically grown green tea—processed under rigorous quality standards to preserve the green color and mild-tasting lightness of the tea—is extremely rich in protective antioxidants called catechin polyphenols, the most notable of which is epigallocatechin-3-gallate or EGCG. According to the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, consumption of green tea results in increased bone mineral density. When brewed with water under a boil for approximately 3 minutes, green tea contains only about 1/15th of the amount of caffeine found in a comparable serving of coffee.
EGCG, a catechin polyphenol that has been shown to inhibit growth of cancer cells in vitro, has also been shown to be effective in lowering blood pressure, lowering LDL cholesterol levels and inhibiting the abnormal formation of blood clots that are a leading cause of heart attack and stroke. Ginger is prized in Asian and Arabic herbal traditions as a potent digestive aid. Recent research confirms its efficacy, and ginger may also be effective in lowering cholesterol.*
