    I always drink a lot of green tea - but i'm paranoid lately as i have been told it can give you quite bad breath if you drink too much....?

    I take a few green tea pills when I'm tired and I have to go to the gym. I feel like I have more energy, but it could be placebo.

    I think it's best to drink tea because you genuinely enjoy it, not because of health benefits it may or may not have. I like the Japanese green teas sold at o-cha.com. For the past year or so, though, I've been drinking much more Taiwanese oolong and Chinese pu erh than Japanese tea. Discovering "real" tea is one of the better and more exciting things I've done, regardless of whether it's improved my physical health.

    I've heard the same thing, especially from some relatives (they're all common, senseless folk), that tea helps in weight loss. But after doing a little bit of research on it and with the help of my anatomy/physiology instructor, I've learned that most teas are merely diuretics (meaning they help you urinate more often). Through this increased urinary discharge, the body eliminates more water weight, such that when a person steps on a weighing scale they get the impression that they have actually lost mass when in reality they have not. Cautious optimism with tea, gentlemen.

    well, the thing with me is about the green tea ( i have been drinking it for past 3 weeks now everyday 2 cups ) is that it acts as sort of a appetite suppressant , the same that coffee did for me, but without all the acidity, the cream /sugar, and caffein (im not sure how much less the green tea has but im sure alot less). and that has helped me lose some weight at least in that respect.

    Interesting. I've been drinking tea a lot when I used to live with my parents (Asians...) but never did feel my appetite being suppressed in any way. Maybe it's just because I have such a voracious appetite and there was an abundance of food at my parents' place that I just didn't think twice about it. Now that I live on my own, though, I'll have to give it another look.

    Polyphenol antioxidants is high in green tea. It have also long term benefits. It is useful for hearth and if you want perfect diet then drink couple of glasses of green tea a day.

    Can someone recommend me some really good green tea? I usually just go to my local asian market and pick which one looks the best lol. I look for the ones without caffeine, but I have no clue on which is the best one. Any recommendations?

    I don't know if it's caffeine free but a long-time staple in Japan and my personal favorite canned/bottled green tea is ITOEN's "Oi~ Ocha"

    Green tea helps me in the "feeling of well-being" department as well as with appetite supression. And if I feel like vomiting, I drink it on an empty stomach! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Green tea is great for you, but not so much better than any other tea out there to justify you choosing it over black or oolong if that is what you prefer.

    The best tea for you is the one you enjoy most since you will drink more of it.

    I drink about 3 cups a day at work. It has benefited me in that by drinking it I avoid drinking coffee. I take coffee with and creamer and sugar, so that's a lot of calories.

    Whole leaf is better. The dried ones in a bag are filled with chemicals, most of which are preservatives.
