According to, or World’s Healthiest Foods, green tea is rich in phytonutrients (anti-oxidents) which wage war against free radicals.  They don’t all survive digestion, but adding lemon juice increases their absorption dramatically. So here you go…green tea with lemon. The ginger is beneficial for digestion.
