    So psudoscience has told us green tea is the way to help weight loss, speeding up metabolism, i'm considering having 3 cups a day (one before every meal, can cut down appetite too!) and seeing whether or not on top of doing WW this will make a difference at my next weigh in?

    Who wants to try it out aswell?

    Erm it's difficult to describe really definitely doesn't taste like proper tea and you of course don't put sugar or milk in it, it's just erm a very weird taste that many don't like i find, but if you drink it whilst it's still pretty warm it tastes better than when it's mild or cooled down a lot! lol

    i was wondering the same! i've got ones with different flavours to them, going to stick to original green tea ones first though, but you can give yours a go and see if you notice a difference! :)

    The ones with flavours are sooooo much nicer than the plain ones. My faves now are the ones with mint and this week I got ones with pineapple and grapefruit.
