A Toast – To Meeting Beverage Lovers’ New Year’s Resolutions
No other beverage can tout the array of health benefits quite like tea. In fact, today’s trend toward healthier, more beneficial beverages is a huge driving force in the ever-growing popularity of hot and iced teas. Recent research indicates that sugary sodas and fruit juices will continue to be replaced by drinks that promise energy and nutrition while being formulated with fewer, simpler ingredients and fewer calories. Tea is the natural choice for the growing trend of consumers’ being more conscious of the ingredients that go into everything they drink.1 Not only is tea a superior source of healthy antioxidants, but, because of its caffeine, tea is an ideal natural energy drink as well.
