Q:

Is Lipton green tea healthy?

A:

Quick Answer

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.
