is there caffeine in green tea? im thinking no, but im thinking yes. id rather it not...i dont like stimulants. unless green tea happens to be a stimulant, i think its health properties outweigh the stimulant side

thoughts appreciated

per serving
young green tea leaves - 1800mg

Natural green tea is caffeinated. You can also buy "decaff" green tea though.

Yes it does, but less than half of normal tea. You might be able to find some that are caffeine free though as well.

About the benefits.

With the amount of catechins in green tea, you would need to have about 5 servings to experience any real benefits. At least according to Alan H. Pressman anyhow. Even so, I have some green tea anyways, even if its not 5 servings (2/day) it still has good antioxidant properties.

yeah i cant drink down that much green tea, i just figure 1-2 cups a day is better than none. plus i have honey, and unsweetened coco and lots of fruits too. so, im sure it all adds up

What kind of fruits do you eat?

This may sound silly, but do you eat the fruit peels?

No, not at all. In-fact, the fruit peels, orange peel for example, is the part of the fruit that has the most bioflavonoid content. Just some people might consider eating orange peel disgusting or weird, anyhow, ya.
