The Truth about Green Tea

A Health Powerhouse or Mostly Hype?


  • 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! - 8/11/2011 6:49:57 AM
    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 - 5/30/2011 8:19:25 PM
    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! - 4/12/2011 3:34:13 PM
  • I love drinking green tea and have all kinds in my cupboard. I love to drink it hot or cold, I can't live without my green tea! - 3/11/2011 8:09:35 AM
  • I enjoy Bigelow Constant Comment and Earl Grey Green teas. They have all the benefits of green tea, but the taste of some of my other favorite black teas. - 3/8/2011 10:54:01 AM

  • 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. - 1/21/2011 2:06:22 PM

  • 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 ! - 6/10/2010 5:42:19 PM

  • 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. - 5/12/2010 2:26:15 PM
    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. - 5/6/2010 6:30:26 PM
  • Trader Joe's makes green tea with pomegranate and blueberry. It is in the juice section and it has 0 calories. Delicious. - 5/4/2010 11:26:45 PM
    I have been trying to drink more tea, but I am not very successful. My daughter has a hot water dispenser and that helps her increase her tea consumption. - 3/14/2010 7:14:01 AM
