The health benefits of green tea are often touted, but usually some additive is necessary to make it palatable. Add a splash of lemon juice to plain green tea to cut the harsh, tannic flavor of the tea while reducing (or eliminating) the need for sugar/honey/artificial sweeteners. The citrus juice will also maximize the impact of the tea's antioxidants, making the drink not only more tasty but also more healthy.

Drinking green tea helps speed up your metabolism, which in turn helps you burn more calories. For an added bonus drink green tea 20 minutes before exercise to encourage more calorie burning. I donít actually like the taste of green tea, but am drinking green tea with peppermint or lemon so as to hide the taste. Green tea is also buzzing with anti-oxidants and so also helps improve your complexion, as well as other heath benefits.
