What Is Green Tea Lemonade? It’s just green tea with the juice of fresh lemons squeezed into the tea. The term “Green Arnold Palmer” is getting popular not just because it is basically and Arnold Palmer made with Green Tea, but its also good for you  which we all associate with the term “green”.

It’s quite amazing how the simple and cheap drink can drastically improve your health, help you lose weight and even extend your life and yet there is no big buzz. The fact is nobody makes money by telling you how good for you it is to drink green tea lemonade every day. Seriously just green tea by itself has so many health benefits that people should be drinking it every day. Unfortunately a lot of people just don’t like green tea and so they pass on the green tea. Oddly these same people will spend tons of money on supplements to obtain the same benefits. To these people I say give Greene Tea Lemonade a chance.
