    I like it but only black(sounds odd black green tea) with a little sweetener.It's really refreshing.

    I drink a tea called Slim Detox by Dr Stuart, got it in Tesco for about £4, its got herbs in it that are supposed to help suppress appetite, not sure it works really as it might just be a placebo effect, but I'm quite into it now and feel less hungry and my losses have been steady xxxx

    I've been drinking flavoured green teas for a couple of weeks now but cant say I've noticed its affected my losses at all (had 1 1/2lb loss and a STS since I've been on the green tea - had a posh meal out on the STS week).

    I will keep drinking them though - I like them, and it frees up some milk allowance to use on other HEA choices.

    At work I have a pack of Twinings mixed flavours - 25 bags with cranberry, citrus, pineapple & grapefruit, apple & pear and orange & lotus flower - quite good to get a variety of flavours and decide which you like best. At home I have green tea with peppermint.

    I don't have any standard green tea, I generally prefer the flavoured ones. I take it without milk or sweetner (but I dont sweeten my regular tea anyway)

    I can't say that I took to it - of course it maybe an acquired taste. I'm such a teapot though and can't go for long without my tetley/PG tips!

    I was always a big "normal" tea drinker but a few months ago I switched to drinking mainly green tea with mint. I drink the Liptons brand. I don't think it's had an affect on my weightloss other than as someone else pointed out, frees up more of my HexA for cheese :D

    Hi, Green tea with lemon is lovely ( PG tips even do a box)it can get a bit of getting used to - but worth it, it is refreshing. Not sure that it helps weight loss, does seem to make me go for a wee a bit more tho..

    Hi, I drink Green tea. Its Tick Tock Rooibos Green tea. U don't need milk or sweetner and as it is quite mild you can leave the teabag in the entire time. I have tried others and they are alittle bitter or something. Give it a go. LA

    I have morrisons green tea with mint, and it's really refreshing. In fact I don't drink 'normal' tea anymore, which frees up my HEA for cheese if i want it..lol I didn't buy it for the weight loss though, I got it for something different and liked it.
