I'll have to try that one too! I have NO plans on giving up my coffee! I drink 2 cups a morning and i love it...i'm not giving it up. my guilty pleasure is the caramel vanilla creamer..yummy. I was not able to get to the store tonight so no green tea for me tonight. I was reading though to get all the benefits i have to brew it hot....should i not get the bottled kind at all?

One time.. call me crazy.. I STOPPED DRINKING COFFEE FOR 3 WEEKS.. and drank green tea.. steeped, from the bag. I loved it. I peed A LOT, but after a week I felt really normal. I did go back to my coffee (COFFEE!) but only two cups a day. I still drink green tea quite a bit.. For an iced version, I make it the way I normally would and then pore it over ice. Yummy. Good for you. Try it!
Wow, that is a lot of calories for a green tea drink! I usually drink the Snapple diet green tea or the Lipton diet green tea. I never drink the regular of these anymore because of the sugar content in them and in soda. I like the Stash Green Teas. They have some in flavors and they are very good. Those you sweeten on your own or not at all.

I haven't tried the regular (come in a box) green tea yet. I actually had to give up Lipton's Green Tea with Citrus because they don't tell you that one little bottle is actually 2 servings and you get twice the calories. I'm guessing a lot of that has to do with the sugar.
Something tells me though, that drinking the regular/box green tea every once in awhile is a good idea. I have heard that you need to limit your green tea intake per day to something like 1 or 2 glasses because it is a diuretic.

I have heard alot of stuff about green tea and I was wondering if anyone has any advise as to which brand is the best (taste wise). I am drinking a bottle of Canada Dry Green Tea Ginger Ale right now and it is pretty good...just a bit high on the calorie side (230 for the bottle). has anyone seen any results from drinking green tea?
