A double dose of antioxidants, brewed lavender black tea and pomegranate juice make a powerful pair!

In the hot summer months we tend to forget about drinking tea for optimal health. Tea of all kinds, green, black, white or honeybush all have extremely high amounts of antioxidants making it one of my favorite superfoods… superdrink I guess I should say!  Tea contains polyphenols, which is an antioxidant that protects our cells from damage and stress and some can also help with acid reflux.  

While green tea contains more polyphenols than black tea, regular consumption of black tea may lower risk of heart disease and diabetes.

I brewed Earl Grey black tea infused with lavender flowers for more of an aromatic flavor however, you can use any tea you prefer!  Added citrus fruit, berries and apples give this iced tea an added dose of flavor and nutrients!
