Mom always tells you about how important it is to “eat your veggies.”  But perhaps, considering all the health benefits popping up, she should amend this statement slightly – “and drink your tea.”

mmm, mmm m'okayLuckily for us, the fine folks over at Campbell Soup Company have come up with their finest idea since their now immortalized tomato soup design: combine the two.

That’s right, according to a recent press release, a new line of V8 beverages will have a combined serving of vegetables and fruit in each 8-ounce glass, along with “the antioxidants and cool, crisp taste of,” you guessed it, “tea.”  This new drink, called V8 V-Fusion +Tea, is scheduled to be hit the shelves in the US in October.

I take this as a significant sign that tea is making big steps forward, as this is one of the most well-known healthy beverage brands on the market.

But will it taste good?  That’s yet to be decided.
