Hydration is Key - Is Tea Hydrating?

Proper hydration is important, especially when it comes to our bodies working at their best, but it is important to remember that we all have different fluid needs! 

Make Every Sip & Bite Count!

Remember that what you drink can be just as important as what you eat!

According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) MyPlate, a balanced diet consists of calories, nutrients, and other important dietary components. Flavonoids would be considered dietary components with tea being one of the best sources in the diet.

What About Caffeine?

In general, for those concerned about their caffeine intake, tea can often be a good choice because it contains lower levels of caffeine relative to other caffeinated beverages.
