I love green tea, but do you get the same benefit from all green tea that are sold in stores. It seen like everything has green tea in it, there is the bottle green tea, all types of green tea bags, instant green tea. I have drinked the real green tea when I was in Japan and it really does works wonders, but the green tea I drink here do not measure up.
I like to make a 3 cup pot of green tea in the morning. I drink a cup of it hot with half of an orange juiced into it... and then later that day at some point I add it as the liquid for my fruit smoothies.
I'm not a big hot tea drinker...I had never thought of making green tea into iced tea but will give it a try. I did buy some green tea with pomegranate, it was good but the taste reminded me of the smell of a gift shop that sells scented candles ( if that makes sense ) very apple cinammony...I'll get regular green tea to make the iced tea.
I haven't cared for green tea, cold or hot, how can I learn to enjoy the benefits of this tea. I drink Oolong right now on the suggestion of a my chinese herbalist friend.

Geen tea is what I drink midmoring at work. It seems to calm me and make me feel like I'm doing something special for myself amidst alot of commotion. At home on the week ends I make green tea in my coffee pot by putting several tea bags in the glass pitcher and letting the hot water run threw the system and then it sits and steams for awhile. Sooo soothing.

does crystal light green tea have the same effects?
I love green tea also - but have recently been introduced to red tea. As I understand it has the same health benefits as high in antioxidents as green tea but with absolutely no cafeine. I prefer it most of the time but tend to mix it up with all herbal teas - white, green, red in place of black teas.
Lovely reading so many comments about green tea. I knew it does help in weight loss. I would like to hear more about your comments on white tea! Is this true that one should drink green tea only after meal to reduce weight or one before and one after each meal ? I would like to hear from you if there a limit that one should not drink more than so many cups of green tea or one could drink any amount of green tea through out the day when ever one wishes to drink it?
