A 16 oz. serving contains a half pound of real fruit, and it's loaded with other good stuff such as Vitamin C and antioxidant-rich green tea. But it doesn't taste like tea! It tastes like the thickest, fruitiest, smoothie you've ever had! No refrigeration is necessary until the carton is opened and the shelf life is a minimum of six months! After opening, your JetTea is good in the refrigerator for four weeks.
