And, consumers can feel good about increasing their consumption of tea – during summer and all year long. Bob Greene, exercise physiologist, fitness author, and Oprah’s personal trainer, recommends Lipton® Tea as part of his Best Life Program. "Tea, when consumed on its own without milk or sugar, not only tastes great but contains virtually no calories," he says. "This means that tea is an excellent accompaniment to a healthy balanced diet and lifestyle, and to a weight management program."

 

 

Tea is not only delicious; research shows that tea has significant health benefits, many of which are not well-known:

.. Tea is a natural source of antioxidants called flavonoids , which help to reinforce the natural defenses of the body.
