Green tea claims...um, watery
To me, green tea tastes like dishwater strained through a sweatsock. But we already know I am a barbarian.
Canada Dry and Lipton, however, have received scoldies from the FDA. The first says Canada Dry Sparkling Green Tea Ginger Ale cannot be touted as enhanced with antioxidants.
Furthermore, grumped the FDA, the antioxidants claimed weren’t really anti-oxidizing anything.
The feds also did not love Lipton Green Tea Naturally Decaffeinated being recommended to reduce cholesterol.
That would make it a drug! OMG! No no.
The makers cried uncle (different uncle, not Sam) and said they would work with the agency, whatever that means.
In the meantime, make your own sock cocktails.
