What are the good and bad effects of drinking green tea?

I have heard that drinking green tea after meals can help lose weight or digest your meal quicker . Is that true?

Re: What are the good and bad effects of drinking green tea?

the only side-effect that I've ever experienced from green tea is it leaves my mouth very dry. Other than that, I don't think there are any bad effects.

Ya well you can OD on green tea... go dizzy, get high n get nervous tremors.

But that only happens when you act like an idiot, like I did, and brew 30gms in 500ml and drink the concentrate undiluted.

If you brew it yourself, take care to brew it for 3/4 mins max, drink it warm with a few drops lemon juice mixed in each cup. And always remember, if its bitter, its either too concentrated or you've brewed it for too long, n the tea has got too much tannins. DON'T drink this very bitter tea. The tannins are carcinogenic in the long run.

Preferably brew a concentrate, and store it at room temperature. Heat up some water and add some concentrate to it when you wanna drink it. Drink no more than 1litre a day, add no sugar to it, and you won't have any problems.
Best of luck!

Re: What are the good and bad effects of drinking green tea?

do you have to brew individual tea bags? Is it ok just to drop a tea bag into a glass of water and stir for a few minutes? I want it cold anyway.

well I brew loose leaf... gives me more control over quantity and strength of the tea.

and you have to at least warm the water when you brew the tea, coz the heat causes the infusion.
