There are many great antioxidants in green tea, especially ones that lower your LDL, which is the bad cholesterol. This is a cool and refreshing drink you'll want to serve and enjoy all summer long!
We love to drink green tea everyday and all day long! And, we prefer to sweeten it with a little honey instead of sugar. It's quick and easy to make for families and friends, and is a healthy choice, so drink up everyone, and have a wonderful Memorial weekend!
