Tea Vs. Tea Beverages

Because the health benefits of tea has become more recognized by the public,
some manufacturers are putting a small amount of it in a product, then
adding ingredients that are bad for you, such as sugar. For instance, a Snapple
Green Tea has 46 grams of sugar in it, the equivalent of about 11 sugar cubes.
That's more than twice as much sugar as you get in a Hershey chocolate bar,
which as 22 grams of sugar. Just because the label says white tea doesn't make
it a healthy drink.

This is makes me think twice about Snapples Green and White Teas. I am really getting hooked on them.

So who you gonna call? Babelcarp! Just type that phrase into the blank in the form, submit it, and hope the Carp knows at least some of the words.
