Re: Another green tea Q-How much?
You really do need at least 4-6 cups (about 24-48 ozs.) of green tea a day to get the true benefit. I know, the thought of drinking that much hot tea can be daunting. I do two things-one, I will choose a "blend" variety-for some reason, mint and green tea are just naturally complementary flavors which work well together. I choose a mint/green tea blended tea. Two, I will ice my tea. By icing it, it really becomes a "beverage" that I drink through the day. To make it as beneficial as possible, I sweeten it with stevia or honey. It was a little strong at first, now I down much more than 4-6 cups a day.
I'm a little wary of those "super green tea" supplements-they typically concentrate the green tea so much that it's the equivalent of many, many cups. I just recently read an article about how this may cause more harm than good-long and short, 4-6 cups that you drink naturally will likely give you the best overall health effect.
