Green tea

Postby Carley » Tue Apr 06, 2010 9:41 am

Who else is drinking green tea? I've decided to swap from normal tea to green tea for many reasons but to help with water retention. I've found I'm a lot more regular drinking it, my tummy feels flatter (woohoo!!!) I'm curious what has it done for others? And how much do you drink a day? I drink 3 cups a day :)

Hey - Yes, I've switched to a Herbal Green Tea (Thermojectics). I lovvvve it!!!!! Not sure why, but I have so much energy now!! It really perks me up. I always have a cup before I hit the gym. Apparantly it's supposed to assist in kickstarting the old metabolism too. I have 2 cups a day. Highly recommend the thermojetics brand. Check it out...ummm I dont think I can post the link, but you can look up my supplier on facebook (herby girls Admin Censored) ... there s a link to the website on there ;)

Oh I love green tea! Actually I love all herbal teas!

I haven't actually seen the difference with drinking green tea because I've been drinking it for years and years but I know I prefer it more to than black tea. I'm crazy with consumption though some times 5 cups a day or I put some in a jug and dilute with water to drink throughout the day. Yummy :mrgreen:

That's an interesting idea, I might have to try that!

I try to drink about 4 cups per day. It helps with your daily water consumption and I do find it makes me feel better

I find green tea clears my mind and keeps me alert but doesn't disturb my sleep if I drink it at night. I haven't noticed any weightloss from drinking it though...

I'm quite fond of green tea and mint. I'm not usually a tea drinker, but I like green tea. I always drink it whenever I feel a sore throat coming on. I'll drink as many cups as I can fit into the day I start to feel sick, then 3 or so for a few days after. It always prevents the cold, or makes it a lot shorter. Possibly its mind over matter, but it has worked for me everytime.

I want to like Green Tea. I really, reallyyyyy do because of all the health claims. But I cannot get past the fishy smell/taste it has! Ok, I realise I sound a bit crazy but I have a friend who thinks that same. I've tried all different brands and brewing methods but it still tastes and smells the same to me.

My tea of choice is Peppermint! Love it!
