    Ok, I have been reading about some of you drinking green tea. What kind to you drink? Where do you get it? and Most of all, what does it really do for you or your body?

      I drink some from the tea bags and Lipton Diet Green Tea I get from Costco. It has many anti-oxidents, its suppose to be good for you, i drink one everyday, sometimes more.

        I buy the Lipton Diet one also. It's really good. It gives me energy (or maybe I just think it does?) and is good for you.

        I drink a few a day.

          Lipton green tea from the tea isle of your local grocery store and walmart. I like it it is suppose to spead up metabolism for fat burning. There is a diet green tea that is suppose to clean your system. Some of my coworkers swear by it.

              I drink Good Earth Green Tea, found at your local supermarket. It makes me feel energized and keeps me regular (sorry TMI!)

                Green tea has a bunch of antioxidant compounds in it (also in black tea.) There's been some studies that suggest it may prevent the onset of cancer; it has been studied in stage I and II breast cancer and prostate cancer in mice. There's also been research on animals that show topical preparations containing green tea extract to protect the skin against photo-aging, inflammation, and skin cancer. Green tea, unless decaffeinated, does contain caffeine, which might explain the boost in energy. It also contains lots of vitamin K (found usually in green leafy vegetables such as spinach) which could be of concern if someone is taking a prescription medicine such as Coumadin (warfarin sodium.) Now, with all of that being said, I just like green tea ice cream. Anyone else have a pharmaceutical/herbal question? I'm studying for my boards to be licensed here in California, so this is kind of helping me review. :)

                  Mmmm, I love green tea! I'm sensitive to caffeine so it definitely gives me a jolt. My two favorites right now are Davidson's Lemon Green Tea w/Ginseng and Lipton's Green Tea w/Mandarin Orange (it comes in this cute little pyramid bag and it tastes great!!).

                  I love just about any type of flavored green tea. I just tried some w/mint at the coffee shop yesterday and it was delish!

                    I used to be a coffee snob, but it started to bother my stomach so I switched to tea. Now I'm a total tea snob!
                    You are all going to hate me after you read this.

                    I only drink tea out of a bag if I have no other options. Otherwise I only use loose leaf. I buy it from a tea cafe by my house. I like morrocan mint grean tea - lots of places have that (cbtl in cali has yum mint). My fav is this blalack tea with orange rind and red dates in it. In winter I love roobios.
