question for all you greentea users

Hey i heard green tea is good for ur skin and body n blah blah blah but i tried the lipton one with blueberry mixed, dear god its gross... when its hot, i was wondering if u can drink it cold with some ice cubes or are there any other better flavors that u can actually be able to quickly swallow it down with out puking? I was told if u buy from a japanese shop they got better ones cant think of the specific name. All help is appreciated.

I drink the lipton green tea, just the regular kind. If you check out the side of the box you will find the directions to making iced green tea, you get the same benefit. You make a pitcher of it at a time to stick in the frig.

Use stevia. It is a sweetener that you can get at a health food store that is made from herbs. It has no calories and doesn't have side effects that sugar and artificial sweeteners do.

Re: question for all you greentea users

is Green Tea made by Arizona crap? i notice they add high fructose corn syrup in it.

actually i read green tea boosts your immune system. however i would think since the immune system is what causes pimples, it would actually cause your immune system to fight the p.acnes even more?

Personally whn I drink Green Tea it makes me have to "pee" more often than any other drink, maybe it is a way to flush out your system

Celestial Seasonings has "Antioxident" Green Tea Bags. It tastes good--has a bit of a citrusy taste. It should be found in most grocery stores.

Re: question for all you greentea users

Green tea is green tea. Just about every possible brand has one, the one that you want to buy to see results is bagged 100% all natural green tea no additives. It does not matter wether you drink it hot or cold. It boost your immune system and helps fight off acne. I would not add anything other than lemon or honey for optimal benefits. Anything that is prebottled or premade won't be worth your effort as it will contain sugar and other additives. You can buy green tea at any grocery store.

Re: question for all you greentea users

buy whatever kind you can/find or afford. Not going to argue what brand is better, it all works in the same way if it 100% green tea. Some teas will be gold, some will be a bit greener just depends on the brand, good luck!

Re: question for all you greentea users

Believe it or not, you can get used to the taste of green tea without having to add anything to you. I used to think it was so gross and had to add sugar or honey to drink it. Now I drink it plain and I love it. A bit of an aquired taste I suppose!
