I can't imagine a day without my earl gray tea or green tea.

I enjoy green tea as well, but usually iced.

I drink about 8 cups of green tea every day because I like the taste and it does not bother my stomach like coffe started to do. I use tea bags while at work but after i tried loose leaf green tea I was spoiled for the taste is so much better than that from the tea bags. I get my loose leaf tea from Chadotea.com which has many different varieties to choose form.

I LOVE all sorts of teas, from green to black to herbal. I used drink it occasionally but I've started drinking it a lot more often lately, as a replacement for my coffee, a drink w/ dinner or just to curb the appetite or warm me up a little bit.
SWALSH80 -- I personally haven't noticed that effect. Coffee was the one that did it to me and I actually do a lot better now that I've switched. Are you adding anything to the tea? Sweetners or anything that might be affecting you?

Has anyone else had a problem with green tea's "cleansing effect"? It happens to me every time I drink green tea. Does it eventually stop after drinking the tea for a while?

I recently tried Tetley Mango Passionfruit Acai Green Tea and loved it.
I usually brew the loose bag type green tea (the tea leaves are not crushed like the Tetley) and was wondering...Does anyone know if the antioxidant value is higher in one than other??

I also drink lots of green tea. When I drink it hot, it's brewed as is, but I found 1 mint tea bag with the green makes a terrific iced.

I too have taken to drinking at least 2 16 ounce glasses of white tea a day. I don't know if it's true about it raising the metabolism, but I do know while on vacation and eating things I don't normally eat - I DID NOT gain weight.
I've been plopping a bag in my water bottle to flavor the water through out the day and take in some of the benefits.

I love green tea! Well tea in general :] I've discovered more recently it also suppresses my appetite a bit. Sometimes when I get hungry at night, instead of reaching for a late night snack, I just heat up some water in the microwave and pop a tea bag in!

I have been drinking green tea for years. It is the only tea that I can drink unsweetened. A cup of hot green tea in the evening relaxes me for bedtime.

I have drank tea every day since childhood brewed fresh no sweetener no lemon. For about the past ten years I have drank green tea in the same manner. At first I thought the taste was weak so I brewed it stronger and it then gets bitter. Finally, I used one regular tea bag and about 5 green tea bags to make my tea and it seems to work great. I now just drink either green or black oblong.

I have recently traded my morning cup of coffee with a morning cup of green tea. I drink it straight - no added sweeteners. I like the slight bitter taste at the end.
