17 October 2012 – TWININGS GREEN TEA & CRANBERRY
The Chinese have known about the medicinal benefits of green tea, which is made from Camellia sinensis, since ancient times, using it to treat everything from headaches to depression. And since the early 21st century, raw cranberries have been marketed as a “super fruit” due to their nutrient content and antioxidant qualities.
The secret of green tea lies in the fact that it, too, is rich in antioxidants. The British Journal of Nutrition reports that drinking more than three cups of green tea a day protects against cell deterioration as we age. DNA tests showed that this habit adds the equivalent of five extra years onto the tea drinkers’ lives.
Twinings Cranberry Green Tea combines the marvelous qualities of both. Blended with the essence of fresh cranberries, each tea leaf is infused with a delicate fruit flavour and evocative fragrance. The deep red fruit flavour of cranberry adds a zingy sharpness which, when combined with this quality golden green tea, gives a refreshingly juicy taste.
Twinings Green Tea and Cranberry is distributed by Stafford Bros & Draeger and is available for approximately R51.99 from leading retail outlets across the country.
