    Drinking Green Tea


    I love drinking Green tea and was wondering how many other people like it too and how much they drink a day. I like drinking loose leaf Japanese and Chinese Green Tea, matcha, and tea bags and drink between 3-5 cups a day.

    As an agricultural product, I've found the taste to vary widely by variety and even season to season. You can become a serious tea afficianado if you have the inclination and the money. Most of the time I just have organic green or white tea that comes in bags from the supermarket but I do have some more rare teas. I like to go to the markets that serve asian immigrants and pick stuff at random just for fun.

    I like Chinese green tea, the flavor is more bold/stronger.
    Japanese green tea usually have a rice like taste to it. You can always have the option of buying with or without. Either way, it is too light for me.

    Speaking of rare teas, I have seen the ones costing more than 50.00 a pound O_O

    I try to get a minimum of 3 cups a day.

    I read an article where some epidemiologists were trying to figure out why the British (who drink lots of tea) didn't have the same health benefits of asian populations who drink lots of tea.

    It turns out that the British usually add a little milk to their tea and the casein from the milk binds to the polyphonols preventing them from exerting their beneficial effects. Something to think about when timing your tea around your protein drinks.

    Usually a couple cups of Green Tea, and a couple of Cups of White Tea a day.

    Prefer the white tea.

    Id look to another explanation as well....the Japanese (and a good amount of chinese) take in a very high amount of iodine. Green tea has significant amounts of fluorine, which is not good for the CNS and especially for the thyroid and anywhere that iodine binds. So, the japanese take care of the fluorine by flushing it out with iodine...as we should. Ive since stopped drinking green tea due to the high fluorine content (i have in the past year suffered serious CNS issues and am now hypothyroid/hypoadrenal). But I will soon add it back in once I am not so damn iodine deficient.

    Lesson to learn, if you drink green tea, take some iodine with it. Otherwise you might become iodine deficient and have thyroid and the 'bad estrogen metabolites' (2/16) issues. Pick up a bottle of Lugol's solution and add a a few drops to your water.

    never looked at it that way
    the only negative things i try to avoid while drinking green tea is never drinking it scalding hot or cold, not drinking on an empty stomach, not mixing with alcohol or meds, and not drinking too much as it will cause caffeine intolerance and mineral overdose.

    Agree with Scottyo on the iodine thing. Took green tea extract for 1-2 years and ended up with high TSH probably because of the flouride. Caught it early, now take Lugol's and have high normal free t4 levels and waaaay better mood and energy levels.

    I drink red tea/Roiboos every night as it relaxes me and is even higher than green tea in antioxidants...and no flouride issues that I know of. I'd take a kilo of L-Theanine a day if I could afford to. lol

    Roibos tastes great if you get the right blend. Got mine bulk from Mountain Rose..very smooth, slightly sweet. I haven't heard of any ecgc-like fatburning properties.

    It actually tastes pretty good with milk in it. I tried it when I was in England a few years ago because that's how the people I was staying with made it. It sounds weird until you try it, though.

    the other teas i've tried (black, oolong, white, and some flavored) didn't taste very good to me, green tea is the only thing that does it for me. Relaxes, healthier state of mind, benefits, and above all taste.

    i'm not big on taking the green tea extract powders. since they have a higher concentration of green tea that is equal to ~ 10 cups (more or less) they are a lot easier to overdose on the caffeine and minerals whereas if you drink the tea you are able to control how much you put into your body.

    I'm curious how good that stuff actually is for you. There are a LOT of extra ingredients in the bottled, sweetened green tea. Sometimes I drink the Lipton Diet Green Tea, but for some reason, it just doesn't feel right. Way too many ingredients in that stuff.

    Potentially harmful fluoride levels found in some instant teas

    By Gwen Ericson

    Research suggests some instant teas may contain excessive levels of fluoride.
    Research suggests some instant teas may contain excessive levels of fluoride.

    Instant tea, one of the most popular drinks in the United States, may be a source of harmful levels of fluoride, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis report. The researchers found that some regular strength preparations contain as much as 6.5 parts per million (ppm) of fluoride, well over the 4 ppm maximum allowed in drinking water by the Environmental Protection Agency and 2.4 ppm permitted in bottled water and beverages by the Food and Drug Administration.

    The discovery stemmed from the diagnostic investigation of a middle-aged woman suffering from spine pain attributed to hyper-dense bones. Testing for the cause of her symptoms revealed the patient had high levels of fluoride in her urine. She then disclosed a high consumption of iced tea—claiming to drink one to two gallons of double-strength instant tea throughout the day—which led the researchers to test for fluoride content in several brands of instant tea available on grocery store shelves.

    Each of the teas was tested as a regular-strength preparation in fluoride-free water, and each contained fluoride, with amounts ranging from 1.0 to 6.5 parts per million. The study is reported in the January issue of The American Journal of Medicine.

    "The tea plant is known to accumulate fluoride from the soil and water. Our study points to the need for further investigation of the fluoride content of teas," says Michael Whyte, M.D., professor of medicine, pediatrics and genetics. "We don't know how much variation there is from brand to brand and year to year."

    In many communities in the United States, fluoride is added to drinking water to help prevent tooth decay. However, the Public Health Service indicates that the fluoride concentration should not exceed 1.2 ppm.

    Physicians have been aware that ingestion of high levels of fluoride cause bone-forming cells to lay down extra skeletal tissue, increasing bone density but also bone brittleness. The resulting disease, called skeletal fluorosis, can manifest in bone pain, calcification of ligaments, bone spurs, fused vertebrae and difficulty in moving joints.

    "When fluoride gets into your bones, it stays there for years, and there is no established treatment for skeletal fluorosis," Whyte says. "No one knows if you can fully recover from it."

    Americans are exposed to fluoride not only through fluoridated water but increasingly through fluoridated toothpastes and other dental preparations. Pesticides, Teflon®-coated cookware, chewing tobacco, some wines and certain sparkling mineral waters are more unusual sources of excess exposure. Until now, instant tea had not been recognized as a significant source of fluoride.

    According to Whyte, the findings could aid in the diagnosis and treatment of patients who have achiness in their bones. In the future, doctors should ask such patients about their tea consumption.

    Whyte MP, Essmyer KE, Gannon FH, Reinus WR. Skeletal fluorosis and instant tea. American Journal of Medicine 2005 Jan;118(1):78-82.

    Funding from the Clark and Mildred Cox Inherited Metabolic Bone Disease Research Fund supported this research.

    Washington University School of Medicine's full-time and volunteer faculty physicians also are the medical staff of Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children's hospitals. The School of Medicine is one of the leading medical research, teaching and patient care institutions in the nation, currently ranked second in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. Through its affiliations with Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children's hospitals, the School of Medicine is linked to BJC HealthCare.

    I take a 1 liter bottle, fill it with cold water, and toss in a bag of lipton (cheap) green tea, about an hour later it has filtered out into the water, and I found it didn't have that acidic film on top of the bottle you find when its added to hot water. Good topic, it seem like everything else taken in excess can be bad for you. I've been drinking way to much green tea over the last months, using it in place of coffee, I'll have to research the flouride, iodode issue.

    thats good, coffee sucks and it isn't good for you. I've even tried the Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee (supposedly the best tasting coffee in the world) and it just ok, thats it, nothing special. but i do love green tea.

    if your saying coffee sucks there is something wrong with your logic

    green tea itself to me tastes BLAH lol...

    coffee has a lot of benefits buddy. i aint there to argue but both products i consume and both have tons of benefits

    Classic.

    I was a fornicator and I quit fornication.
    I was an adulterer and I quit adultery.
    I was a gambler and I quit gambling.
    I was a lier and I quit lying.
    I was a thief and I quit stealing.
    I was a smoker and I quit smoking.
    I was a drinker and I quit drinking.
    Now they call me a quitter.

    LOL, no worries. Everything we ingest has good and bad qualities. Caffeine causes benign breast lumps which can be mistaken for breast cancer.....but it also lowers the chance of getting Parkinson's disease. On balance, I think a couple cups of coffee a day is a positive addition to the diet.
