For those of you who like to drink green tea (I drink at least two cups a day as well as take 1G of 1fast400's everyday), I find the Salada brand to be the best for drinking. The "Purple Antioxidents" one is GREAT! Salada is available at most grocery stores, and I find it to be much better than the Lipton ones. The "Purple Antioxidents" one also has grape skin extract, and other goodies in it. And it tastes great. Here's Salada's online store for those who can't find it locally: http://www.salada.com/onlinestore.html

LOL, cycling green tea what do you do for recovery?
When I was taking 3-4g daily I always smelled like tea extract - it was unpleasant. Even if I scrubbed the top layer of skin off, it'd last maybe like 6 hours tops.

nice price. 120 grams capped for 26 bucks? not too shabby. thanks for sharing.Originally Posted by wojo

When I was fat from diner eating and drinking etc, I drank 2 quart of of Celestial Seasons green tea with antioxidants every day. The caffiene boost is nice, the antioxidants included are a bonus. Plus it helped me quit nexium and get off coffee. I cant say whether it had any other benefits other than the speediness, but when combined with the bags of tuna and lowered carbs, I lost 35 pounds of fat (210 down to 175)in about 2 months. Just my experience. I would assume that the weight loss came from the diet change though, certainly not the tea. My wife is a registered dietitian and she thought I was nuts living on tuna, but it worked.

I got 100 g of 40% ECGC from Custom and it tastes like absolute ass!
Anyone else think their green tea extract tastes like vomit? What did you do about it?

Yeah, Customs stuff has a tendency to taste like ass, but who cares it's great quality and cheap. I put mine in hot water sometimes with a green tea bag or sometimes solo and the taste is so so (I'm using the 1fast kind, though)Originally Posted by jmh80

Yeah, the extract (from anywhere) tastes terrible - I HAVE to cap mine (which can be a pain with green tea for some reason) or buy it already capped. It tastes like total crap otherwise and I tend to not use it unless I cap it.

i've been throwing the extract in my mouth for a month or so. it's not horrible, unless you throw it back to far, hits your throat, exhale and it shoots into your nose. then, you've got issues.

3-Weigh out tea onto piece of paper(1-2g)
4-Drop into back of mouth
5-Immediately wah down with 300ml water
Works great for me

I've done this before, but I thought it was pretty nasty. Definitely DON'T put it in your protein shake, cause it doesn't mix at all in cold fluid.Originally Posted by Beelzebub
