If I recall, green tea has less than black tea and black tea has less caffeine than coffee.

I just got a green tea/pomegranate tea from Republic of Tea - it has all of the antioxidants of green tea, as well as all of the nutritional value of poms. It's really tasty!

i used to drink at least 1 liter of green tea over a year, or maybe even two. But i switched to water or 'light teas' (such as limetree blossom etc.) a few months ago, since i tend to be a little anemic and i read caffeine may repress the iron absorption in the body.

and yeah.. i haven't noticed any difference at all, i.e. everything about me is still the same which leads me to the conclusion that green tea didn't have any noticable effects on me.

but i just like drinking it, so i may also just start again.

I have heard that the decaffinated green/white tea's do not contain the same amount of antioxidants because of the process it goes through whilst being decaffinated.

Also green tea has about 20mg of caffeine per cup,
white tea has about 15mg per cup,
coffee 90mg per cup just for comparison.

Make sure you get ORGANIC tea's as well. Non organic tea and coffee is heavily sprayed.

You shouldn't have milk or sugar with these tea's either as it really lowers the nutrient content. I would say raw honey would be ok.

I've read that green tea needs to steep for at least 30 minutes to get its full benefits...

You should soak tea with cold water first. Also don't use boiling water, especially with white tea, which should be warm water.

yes! you'll also notice quite a big difference in taste between greentea with boiling water and shortly-before boiling water.

It's much less bitter and more enjoyable.

ah and never buy any of the cheap packed greentea bags generally, they're just gross and none of the benefits remained in them anyway.
