Lipton Greentea Complaint - Misleading Information

Review by Blessedmama on 2010-06-22
I have been drinking Lipton Diet Greentea thinking it was okay to help you lose weight and it suppose to be good for you. After increase of blood pressure, swelling in my leg and ankles, jittery feeling, and nervous feeling I decided to visit the doctor. There I discovered it not a decaffeinated drink. It is full of caffeine, and it may contribute to my increase heart rate, jitter feeling, and other complaints. I looked over and over on the bottle and no way on the bottle stated it is decaffeinated. The drink misleads people into buying it because they think its safe, because it is diet. I feel that Lipton Diet Greentea need to have information on the bottle stating that it has caffeine in it.

the diet part refers to the sweetener they use. green tea is good for you but like everything else you have to use moderation. the only way to lose weight is through better eating habits. green tea bags come in caffinated and non caffinated. it will say so on the box or bottle

Caffeine is naturally occuring in tea, coffee, and chocolate. These products do not have to state that they have caffeine. They are only labeled caffeine free or decaffeinated if the majority of caffeine has been removed.
