I drink white tea and from what I understand the water should be boiled, but not boiling. My only issue is that it tastes a bit fish-y....which is weird.

I love green tea <3 .. except I have a thing where I OD on sugar & milk, so I guess the benefits don't work out for me. It's just the way my taste buds work

^

sardine: How else can you drink tea cold rather than using tea bags...do you mean the strainer tea leaves holding device? heh, sorry i'm not good at explaining. Dipping that in cold water will allow the water to absorb the tea?

I used to drink a lot of coffee, but I changed to tea. (I think I'm just addicted to caffiene). :p I drink 2 cups of tea in the morning. I add a tsp of local honey (to help with my allergies) and sometimes, I'll add lemon. When I drink tea throughout the day, I drink it plain. I switch between green and black teas because too much of one thing gets boring to me. I've never tried white tea, but I want to.

I've never noticed any difference in weight loss because I already have a high metabolism. (I'm 5'8" and 117 lbs). But I did notice that when I drink green tea in the morning, it supresses my appetite; so I won't get hungry as fast.

I have cheap tea bags of green tea haha, but I'm not sure if it has the same health benefits? I sure hope so. It's so confusing how yes its good for you,but only if you let it seep for so long blah blah blah it gets so confusing!

^ actually I just went to greentea.com and it's from the brand I just started using-Salada, cheap AND good! It says you only need to steep 2-3 mins, the normal amount, and that they way they decaffinate their teas only uses spring water and effervescence which preserves the antioxidants!

Here are their tips for brewing:
To brew Salada Green Tea properly
1. Bring cold tap water to a boil in a kettle
2. Remove the kettle from the heat and allow it to stand for 1 to 3 minutes
3. Pour the hot water over the tea bag, using 1 tea bag per cup
4. Allow the tea bag to steep for 2 to 3 minutes and remove
5. Add orange or lemon and sweetener if desired

We further recommend that you allow the green tea to cool for another three minutes.

When brewing Salada Green Tea Flavors, use freshly boiled water to fully release the aroma and the flavor. Allow the tea bag to steep for 3 minutes and than set aside for 3 minutes.

Following these instructions will bring out the subtle flavors that make green tea one of the most popular beverages in the world.


They say that right now 4+ cups a day are recommended for the maximum health benefits, but research is ongoing.

In my opinion, if you even have at least 1 cup a day it's still good for you, just the very best is 4+ !
