I agree with many posters who don't like the taste. I don't like it either. Sometimes functionality trumps taste when it comes to health.

This is great, because I love green tea. Got into it while studying kung fu, and during Chinese New Year we'd be doing performances all day and eating and Chinese restaurants all night. Didn't like green tea at first but it does grow on you.

I love green tea. Ive been a avid green tea drinker since the age of 12 lol! Ive never had any ailments (hopefully it stays that way) Ive been very healthy aside from the seasonal cold. Its great for puffy eyes if you soak a fresh tea bag and leave it on your eyes for about 30 min. Or you can mix the soak leaves with avocado and rub it on your face for tighter skin.

i love green tea but i prefer white tea
Hi. i started drinking herbal tea when i was 22, green tea is one of my favourite but a friend told me that white tea is better. I attached an article below which i copied from the greentea base.
Green Tea vs. White Tea - Which Is Better?
For serious tea enthusiasts, the subject of green tea vs. white tea has sparked a growing debate. While many studies and researchers have proven the numerous health benefits of green tea, not much is publicly known about its less-popular sibling, white tea. So here are some comparisons of green tea vs. white tea that you may want to know.
Both green tea and white tea come from the same plant, the Camellia sinensis plant. Green tea is found in China and Japan, while white tea almost exclusively comes from the Fujian province of China.
The white tea leaves are harvested during the early spring in a short period of time—just one to two weeks. White tea is derived from the immature, unopened buds of the plant.
Green tea has a longer harvesting period and can have three to four yields in a year. Green tea is made from the mature leaves of the plant.
Both teas are very minimally processed, which allows them to keep most of their antioxidants intact. Green tea undergoes partial fermentation, but white tea is not fermented at all. Because white tea is not fermented, it contains three times the amount of antioxidants that green tea has.
In terms of white tea vs. green tea benefits, studies have shown that white tea has more antibacterial and antiviral properties than green tea has because of a higher antioxidant content. Both have been proven to boost immune systems, and both have anti-aging properties when added to skin care products. The journal Carcinogenesis published a study by researchers at the Linus Pauling Institute, who showed that both green and white tea might help to protect against colon cancer.
Because white tea is picked at a much earlier stage and undergoes very little processing, it has less caffeine than green tea does. A cup of white tea has an average of 15 mg of caffeine, whereas a cup of green tea has about 20 mg.
White tea has a sweet and subtle flavor, while green tea has a somewhat “grassy” taste, which is why some prefer white tea over green tea.
Less white tea is produced each year because of the short harvest season. Because the supply is lower, and because of the delicate harvesting process, white tea is more expensive than green tea. In fact, it costs nearly three times as much as green tea. However, only a few white tea leaves are necessary to brew such a beneficial cup of tea.
The information above should clear up some issues in the green tea vs. white tea debate. Both green and white teas offer numerous health benefits, but white tea may have a slight edge over green tea. However, white tea is more expensive. Perhaps the way to get the best of both teas is to include green tea in a daily diet and to splurge on white tea once in a while.

Very interesting info. I didn't know green tea can do all those things. I guess there's no harm in trying it, green tea is a pretty much healthy drink, i heard.

Matcha green tea!
Matcha green tea is the whole leaf and is more concentrated/powerful than regular seeping leaves. Definetely worth the investment.

I am guessing these benefits only applied to brewed green tea?
What if I just bought a ****ty lipton bottle of green tea they have on campus? Could easily do that instead of drinking soda, I guess. **** is delicious.

Green tea is excellent, especially when you drink it cold. I put it in a bottle of water and I make sure the lid is tightly closed, by doing this it make it soak faster

Have been drinking a lot Green Tea recently. I'm only drinking 1 cup of coffee a day now. I'm defiantly noticing benefits since drinking Green Tea. Defiantly better for you in terms of health.
I'm going to buy some leafs soon and try it that way. I'm currently drinking via Teabags. Still good for you either way."Grab your phucking nuts for once in your life. Have some ownership, some credibility behind your words and actions. Mean what you say; do what you say. Follow through for something for one time in your life. ONE TIME, one time in your life. You will feel high a you've never felt before. When you follow through with things in life guys, you achieve the confidence & mentality that anything is possible"

good post. i started to drink green tea when i read a similar article a while back. i just wanna tell you guys that pre-made green tea like Arizona green tea with honey and ginseng and stuff like that don't have the same effects. those are just mostly sugar water. most of the antioxidants are lost because of the processing.
to get the best out of your green tea, buy those little tea bags and make it yourself at home.
