Diluting the benefits of green tea

A lot of people are surprised to learn how high in calories many of the bottled green teas and coffee-chain green tea drinks really are.

Authentic loose-leaf green tea like ours, on the other hand, gives you all the health benefits but with zero calories.

Authentic chai tea in India. This is a lot healthier (and lower in calories) than the typical American version. Still, the milk in chai negates the health benefits of the tea.
