Very interesting! I personally prefer white tea because I find it tastes a lot more 'normal' than green tea, which is too overpowering and odd flavour for me. If I do have green tea, I often add jasmine tea leaves as well with the green tea leaves so it's more appetising. I was very surprised by the statements that green tea "can also decrease the absorption of iron and folic acid". i hoenstly did not know! As someone who has had anaemia before, I will make sure that I only have green tea between meals and never with a meal so that it doesn't stop me absorbing the iron. Thanks!
