    I read an article on green tea boosting your metabolism just yesterday. I haven't done any more research into it, so I don't know if it works or not, but regardless, by drinking green tea you're giving your body more fluids which can only be good for it, especially caffeine-free fluids.

    I started drinking it yesterday, let's see how it goes ...

    Just remember with green tea, never EVER make with boiling water. It just burns the leaves and makes it taste reallyu sour! It's lovely it made well, with no sweetners

    Nooooo!!!! MIne says 'off the boil water'. Honestly, you can tell if it's been amde with boiling water, it turns it sour. That's why I never ahve it in a coffee house, cos they make it with boiling water straight out the machine! Yuck!! Just boiled water, but never boiling water

    That's very true, the leaves/bag only should be added to hot water, not boiling water. Actually boiling water can decrease some antioxidant properties of green tea. The same goes for white tea, that is made with the same plant as green tea but just in a earlier stage.
