Hot tea is so good, especially in the winter months. It's a great beverage that has no calories as long as you leave out the sugar and the milk.
We are told that herbal teas have health benefits meaning nutrients. Unfortunately not all teas are created equally.
If you buy a brand that is not certified organic ("made with organic tea" is not 100% organic), no matter how fancy the label is or what they claim the health benefits, what you are getting are teas that are grown in chemically infused soils, sprayed with pesticides that are not legal in this country and they are genetically modified (GMO, meaning limited health benefits if any and promotes allergies).
So..... when you buy your tea make sure that the label has a "certified organic" stamp, Or.........
do what I do and make homemade tea like lemon, lime and orange tea.
Buy an organic orange, lemon or lime, cut it into 8 wedges (give or take depending on the size of the fruit. Squeeze in one wedge per cup of tea. store the rest in a zip sealed bag in the fridge. 8 cups of yummy organic healthy tea!
