Reading Tea Leaves with Seth Goldman
Did you know that tea has been used as a health beverage ingredient for more than 3,000 years? It is a rich source of antioxidant polyphenols and some stimulant ingredients that have made it a leading beverage ingredient across the globe! In this episode, I also chat with Seth Goldman, TeaEO Emeritus of Honest Tea, which he co-founded with in 1998 with the aim of delivering organic and less sweetened beverages to the consumer market using fair trade principles.
