The Doctors share the results of a study in China, which looked at 100,000 adults, who drank green tea at least 3 times a week, and the study found the green tea drinkers were less likely to suffer from a heart attack, stroke, and more likely to live longer. 

But if you are not a fan of green tea, The Doctors suggest ways you can improve the taste. Try enjoy the tea cold and adding tangerines and lime, for a burst of citrus.

If you prefer a hot cup of tea, try adding almond milk and cinnamon to the tea, which taste great on a cold winter morning.
