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!

I like iced tea, green tea, and flavored teas, and I've only been drinking them because I like them, not because I thought there were some kind of superpowers. LOL

My new favorite green tea is Japanese Cherry from Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. This tea is light and has just enough of the cherry flavor that no sweetner is needed. I find it really quenches a thirst as well. You can use 1 bag to make 2 pitchers as well!
I make a glass of iced green tea and squeeze a wedge of lemon into it. It tastes a little different... and is absolutely delicious!... plus it adds nutrients from the fresh lemon! This is my favorite way to drink tea.
I love my Green Tea. I DO take alot of it in Pill form. The one I get at Walmart called GREEN TEA Fat burner. I do NOT use if for FAT BURNING, as I have NEVER seen it do anything for me in that respect....but I DO believe in all the other properties !
I've got some in the cupboard right now. I was thinking of having it as an evening wind-down sort of thing (caffeine free, of course). Think I'll try it out tonight.

During the summer, I like to keep a pitcher of green tea in the fridge. I brew it by steeping tea bags in cold water (like sun tea without the sun) - saves energy if nothing else. It just takes longer than using hot water.
I LOVE any green tea. I drink at least 4-6 cups a day and I like to drink it during my dinner as well. Today its Lychee Pear Green Tea...yummy. I love the fact that since Im enjoying it so much its doing wonders for my insides ...thanks !!!
