Today's Teatime--Tetley's is Off the Hook

by | | 0 comment(s)
A federal judge dismissed a complaint against Tetley's accusing them of misusing the term "antioxidant" and making exaggerated health claims about tea.  We've been keeping an eye on this suit as many tea companies make outlandish claims about the benefits of tea.

We've seen people claim green tea can prevent and even cure cancer.  We've seen claims that tea can improve your vision, increase your reflexes, and make you live longer.

Our Tozy Tea philosophy about tea's benefits is that you should drink tea because it tastes good and makes you happy.  If it turns out to have other benefits, that's wonderful.  But we don't expect miraculous results.

For now, Tetley is off the hook.  We'll have to see if the claimants try again.

Now, for Today's Teatime headlines:
