Yes, it is. Green tea by itself is a healthy drink known to fight cancer and give protection from heart disease. When you add a splash of lemon juice, the strength of green tea goes up 5 times higher, as per reports. This is what happens when these two are mixed:

·     Catechins are antioxidants present in green tea, which are primarily responsible for the tea’s health benefits.

·     When lemon juice is added, the amount of catechin absorbed by the body is about 5% more than normal.

·     The vitamin C found in lemon or any other citrus juice is believed to create this magic.

So the next time you decide to drink tea, make this lemony green tea and drink your way to good health!
