I found it in Walmarts in Florida but athome, we don't have any super wal-marts, not nearby anyway. I find it most often in the health food section of my supermarket.

I don't know Patty, I will have to ask. Can I find it in a regular store or do I need to look in the Health food one?

It is very sweet and apparently made from a plant extract or leaf. I just know I like it.

Can you use Stevia?

I really love green tea. My brother got me hooked on it last year when we went downstate to visit him. But I'm a sweetaholic, and can't drink it with just a bit of honey for sweetening, and saccharin doesn't cut it for me, and Nutrasweet or Aspartame I can't have. emoticon Makes me so mad! Where are Cyclamates when you need them. Now, if I lived in Canada, I could get the Cyclamates! Darn!

Well said Karen. I added green tea to my day about 6 cups per day. One thing I have heard from people who claim to be tea experts is that the second cup off of the same bag gives you the best results so I always use the bag twice. I feel better since I have been doing this. I also use flaxseed in the morning for its healthy benefits.

I am always concerned about cancer. It is true that you want to make sure that waste in the colon region keeps on moving! That is why to me it is important to get enough fiber in your diet. I enjoy drinking hot tea Green Tea throughout the day for the antioxidant purposes. When it comes to your health, why take a chance. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for the reminder about symptoms of a heart attack. Knowing these things could indeed save a life!

I went to www.snopes.com and they say this article is false. No need to panic over solid fats from cold water in the intestines causing cancer.

Heart Attacks and drinking Warm Water

This is a very good article. Not only about the warm water after your meal, but about heart attacks. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals, not cold water, maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating.
For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this "sludge" reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.
A serious note about heart attacks - You should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line.
You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive.
A cardiologist says if everyone who reads this message sends it to 10 people, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life. Read this & Send to a friend. It could save a life. So, please be a true friend and send this article to all your friends you care about
