Here’s some info for you. Green tea is very healthy and is a fat burner. Also, I recommend trying flavored ones, such as Jasmine or Lotus.
“People who took green tea extract three times a day saw their metabolic rate increase by about 4 percent, according to a study published in the December 1999 American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Joy Bauer, a New York City nutritionist, says green tea contains catechins, which increase levels of the metabolism speeding brain chemical norepinephrine.
Japanese researchers claim if you drink five cups of green tea a day, you’ll burn 70 to 80 extra calories. Dr. Nicholas Perricone , an anti-aging specialist, appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show and told Oprah’s viewers they can lose 6 lbs. In 10 weeks drinking green tea instead of coffee.”
“Rather than focusing on the best green tea or the healthiest green tea, often you have to find a green tea you enjoy. No matther how good or how healthy the green tea, you have to like it. Some teas are a bit more vegetal / earthy in flavor while others are more subtle. Often the partially-shaded green tea from Japan, such as Gyokuro Green Tea or Sencha Green Tea, are more vegetal in flavor. The cup is a bright, clear lime green and somewhat earthy and healthy to the taste. I actually find that Sencha and Gyokuro are also very thirst quenching.
China Green Tea, such as Dragon Well Green Tea, is a bit more subtle in my opinion. You can of course also get flavored green teas, such as Jasmine Pearls Green Tea, that smells like the wonderful Jasmine flowers. Jasmine Green Tea makes for a wonderful drinking experience. The premium Jasmine Green Tea lies with Jasmine Flowers, with new flowers being brought in 7 or 8 times. Cheap knockoff is only sprayed with a Jasmine scent or includes some small flower petals in the bag. Be careful of the knockoffs.”
