Yogi Green Tea Goji BerryGreen Tea Rejuvenation from Yogi

Lemongrass, spearmint and peach flavoring give a little zing to this tea, just one of Yogi’s many takes on green tea—a perfect variety for serving iced, in our opinion! Extract of cat’s claw bark, a traditional healing and rejuvenating herb in Peruvian Ashanica Indians culture, supports vitality, while lemongrass and spearmint uplift and refresh. For a fruiter green tea, we also recommend Yogi’s Green Tea Goji Berry variety.
