Is tea healthy?26th September 2007
A watchdog body has ruled that an advertising campaign highlighting the health benefits of tea was guilty of exaggeration.
The Advertising Standards Authority criticised a poster used by the UK Tea Council which recommended drinking four cups a day as part of a healthy diet. The council claimed tea was rich in beneficial antioxidants also found in fruit and vegetables but the ASA said there was no evidence to â€śfirmly substantiateâ€? the claims.
The ASA also criticised the council for misleading references to the governmentâ€™s campaign to encourage people to eat five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
