Q:

Is Lipton green tea healthy?

A:

While Lipton green tea can be healthy, it is the green tea leaves themselves, not the pre-made bottled drink, that have amazing health benefits. Many of the anti-oxidants found in tea leaves are barely found in the bottled drink. For this reason, Lipton tea bags are the best choice for health-conscious drinkers of green tea.

The most powerful anti-oxidant in green tea, epigallocatechin gallate, was found by researchers in a lab test in quantities as low as 4 milligrams in bottled green tea drinks. In tea made from tea bags, that number was anywhere from 10 to 25 times higher.
