Fresh-brewed best!: Teas like Arizona green tea lose over 90% of their beneficial antioxidants and are loaded with sugars, so are not a healthy choice.

Please tell me how long it takes for to get diabetes if you drink more than one arizona iced tea everyday?

It is designed to take your money for the 'hope' that you do not need to do the work it takes to lose. ...Read more
