What do you guys think about green tea? I usually drink like 3 cups a day and i don't drink coffee. I like to drink ir before going to the gym because it gives me a lot of energy. However, I'm wondering if I shouldn't drink it since it has caffeine and caffeine supposedly affects your calcium absortion. What do you guys think?<br><br>

I drink quite a bit all day long. I have to drink something warm because my office is freezing. Please don't ruin it for me either <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Green tea is very good for you. It has less caffeine than black tea, so I wouldn't worry too much about it affecting you at 3 mugs a day.

If you're at all worried, why not just buy decaf? That's what I drink. It's not hard to find.</div>

Because decaf is that way by a chemical process (at least that is what I heard.) Not natural, and not exactly better for you than the caffeine itself.

the antioxidant benefit probably outweighs any caffeine negative.<br><br><br><br>
I like white tea. It's a very subtle flavour, like non-existent to some people; but they're Philistines I'm sure.<br><br>
Enjoy your green tea!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/guitarist.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":guitar:">

I was iffy on green tea until I found Shizuoka Green Tea. I can't get enough of that stuff. I order it in bulk and go through at least 3-4 cups of warm tea a day. I like it much better than any other type of tea. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

<a href="http://www.o-cha.com" target="_blank">www.o-cha.com</a> for all your tea needs. the only problem is its pretty expensive and after drinking this stuff, tea in teabags tastes horrible<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I love green tea, both for the way it makes me feel and it's health benefits. I wonder if there is a decaf green tea that is decaffeinated without the chemical process (isn't there coffee that is decaffeinated by a swiss process that is supposed to be non-chemical???)?

I drink at least a pitcher of it every day.<br><br><br><br>
I like it iced. In fact, I am drinking a big glass of it right now.<br><br><br><br>
I like the new Lipton green teas that are out. To make a pitcher, I like to use 3 bags of the mint green tea, 3 bags of the lemon ginseng green tea and one bag of Sleepytime. YUMMY!

I love all kinds of green tea. It keeps me alert, energized, clear-headed(rather than jittery like coffee, which I also drnk quite a bit of) and has tons of antioxidants.

Ew, lemon juice? No offense. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> I might try it, but it seems like the tastes wouldn't mesh.
