Why Drink Organic Black Tea?
There’s no shortage of reasons for why you should be drinking black tea. Firstly, it’s tasty! Sip it black, put it on ice, or take a cue from the Brits and take yours with a sugar and a spot of milk—with so many black tea types to choose from, you’re sure to find a flavor or brewing method you’ll enjoy.
What’s less obvious is why you should go out of your way to drink organic teas. Beyond the well-documented heart-healthy flavonoids, there are plenty of reasons to choose an organic tea like Lipton® Organic Black Tea instead of not.
Now that we have your attention, let’s get into the nitty-gritty (grit-tea?) of how organic black tea can help keep your body humming.
Organic Black Tea Benefits
Just like regular black tea organic black tea is a great beverage to incorporate into a healthy lifestyle. Tea health benefits aside, drinking a cup of hot (or iced) tea can provide some real stress relief. Tea can also be drunk as a coffee alternative, as it contains plenty of caffeine per serving while being just as hydrating as water when brewed fresh.
Organic black teas are unique in that:
They’re 100% natural. Lipton® Organic Black Teas are USDA Organic-certified and non-GMO, meaning that more natural processes are used in the creation of the teas. To be certified, USDA Organic brands must prove they are protecting natural resources, protecting biodiversity and using only USDA approved substances to grow and produce their product. Learn more about the process by visiting the USDA site.
They’re great for the environment. Our organic black teas are all sustainably sourced from mountains in Kenya and picked at the peak of freshness. This ensures we get the most delicious, richest taste in our brew.
Organic Black Tea as a Natural Energy Booster
It’s widely known that black teas are natural energy boosters. Whether you’re looking for a low-calorie natural energy drink to incorporate into a new health and fitness routine, or simply prefer tea for energy. Drink it in the morning to kick-start your day, or brew a cup in the afternoon as a quick pick-me-up. Organic black tea can also be a great alternative to coffee for tea lovers looking for a boost. Drink up!
