    Green Tea Extract


    I just opened up a 200 gram bottle of green tea powder that I got from you guys probably 6 months ago, going to mix it with some forslean and RK's. All the other GT I've had was green..... This is a reddish brown color. Any idea what it is??

    I got the caps and they are the same color. I'd say it's the powdered color of the specific extracts if I where guessing.

    High Polyphenol GTE is brown, not green. It is also VERY sticky, and is a pain to cap.

    In that case, good luck RED.

    Sounds like it'll be about as much fun as cissus on a humid day. Oh Joy!

    Then I guess you'll be glad to know that the bulk green tea powder I bought from you guys is brown and is a nightmare to cap because it's so sticky!!! But now I see those are GOOD things!!!

    I'd recommend having a capsule filler dedicated to just green tea, as the filler inevitably will become covered in the sticky residue over time, no matter how well it's cared for...I know mine is!

    Yep...this is definitely why we chose to go with the Tea-GCG Green Tea Caps as one of the first in the line.

    Well I got it capped. Wasn't fun, but not as bad as I thought it was going to be after reading this thread! Good cissus is worse. It did seem to have a static charge that was interesting and fun to work around.

    Did this drop of the list of NP capped products or am I just unable to find it on the site?

    Thanks Matt! (I was searching under 'G')

    BTW - order history data base? Can't seem to find mine. Did this get lost in the change over to the new site?

    Hmmm...mine is still there. Maybe HAL finds you obsolete, and is going to try to kill you.

    I think my last order was before the change over
    I'll look into this.

    HAL is so redundant.
