Thirsty Thursday: Peach, Mango Green Tea

Green tea is one of the foods we consider a superfood. It has tons of health promoting properties and this is a fun way to drink it. This tea helps reduce inflammation in the body and is protective against cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. It contains a small amount of local honey to give it some sweetness which is great for seasonal allergies. Peaches are in season right now and are full of fiber, Vitamin C, and Vitamin A. Mango is a great source of potassium and Vitamin A.
