  • Coffee is starting to really bother me, raises my b/p and the acid. I think that I'm going to try green tea. Does it have much acid ? - 8/15/2015 10:12:15 AM

    Green tea is very effective remedy for various common diseases like cholesterol, stress depression and many more. It also helps to enhance your beauty. You can prepare various beauty products from green tea at home to make your skin and hair shiny and flawless.
    I am using spearmint green tea from Amazon , mint keeps me fresh whole the day and it taste better from the traditional green tea.

    I love green tea. I drink it because I love the taste. Pure and simple. - 5/4/2014 4:56:11 PM

  • I have started taking the supplement. I read that green tea extract increased the effectiveness of processes to increase collagen by 10 times over the light therapy process alone. I say this in response to the person who mentioned skin.

    My friend took it to get rid of fibroids after the doctor said surgery was the only option and it worked.

    Mine says decaffeinated and I am wondering if that changes the warning, other than the iron and folic acid. - 2/27/2014 4:05:32 PM

    I love green tea. Although this article says it's ok to drink while pregnant, I have read that you shouldn't due to the fact it depletes your folic acid, which can cause birth defects.

    P.S. If you drink a lot of tea, check out www.bulkherbstore.com. They have some really great ones and their website lists the health benifits of all of them. I love their site. - 1/12/2014 2:45:11 PM

    I've been drinking Original wuyi for 2 days and I already see a noticeably improvement in my skin. My cystic acne spots have dried up and my face looks less red after just 2 days. I definitely recommend drinking green tea as I think cystic acne has more to do with diet than hormones, I no longer get whiteheads that used to plague me. I recently did a complete diet overall and have cut out dairy and caffeine completely. After 2 days I saw the improvements already. - 11/3/2013 7:16:04 AM

    My hubby loves green tea; I like mine black. - 4/14/2013 5:18:19 AM
  • I've been told that it's best to use boiled water that has been given time to cool slightly. Freshly boiled water can burn the leaves and causes the tea to become bitter. This is very likely why I've never been a fan. I've been doing it wrong all these years. Should give it another go and use that jasmine green that i have sitting in the tea cupboard. - 3/18/2013 11:50:54 PM
  • Love green tea! Used to drink it constantly, but have found that with my hyperthyroid, even the slightest bit of caffeine throws me way off track! It's really strange and makes me sad :( But I guess since green tea isn't as good for me as I though, oh well.... - 3/5/2013 9:26:37 PM
  • Green tea is contraindicated with people who take blood thinners like Coumadin. Thought I would throw that out. - 2/19/2013 11:12:09 PM
  • This is my favorite tea. - 1/26/2013 5:35:48 PM
