    I really like the Ito En green teas. It's got a nice flavor, and really refreshing when the weather is warm.

    Freshly-brewed black or green tea! I grew up in the South, so tea was always nearby. Can't stand any of the bottled or canned teas.

    Arizona Tea probably has at least as much sugar as coke or pepsi. It's like 75 grams in one tall can, or some crazy shit. I'd rather eat a pan of brownies, at that point.icon_lol.gif

    Well, drinking your green tea in between meals is your best bet because they contain antioxidants that inhibit the absorption of vital nutrients the body needs like iron. Those of us that workout need iron in our bodies. This is also heavily targeted toward pregnant women and women that are nursing because of the severe effects on the growing fetus/baby. I'm not sure about those canned green teas though as far as the contents.
    It's also said to have its advantages as well although personally I still will hold off on it. Perhaps I just need a taste. I've only recently ever tried iced coffee and I'm hooked but keep it in moderation. Some things just become too good to pass up.

    sugar wars, who knew
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_fructose_corn_syrup

    oh, I see, here is why we have high fructose corn syrup

    A system of sugar tariffs and sugar quotas imposed in 1977 in the United States significantly increased the cost of imported (real) sugar, and U.S. producers sought cheaper sources. HFCS derived from corn is more economical because the domestic U.S. prices of sugar are twice the global price[25] and the price of corn is kept low through government subsidies paid to growers.

    its like oil, US should grow its own sugar cane, stop depending on imports icon_lol.gif

    Mmmm, I love those teas, especially the rose tea.

    If I'm brewing fresh at home, gemnaicha, sencha, and jasmine tea are my staple green teas.

    I drink 1-2 cups of green tea daily. Sometimes I drink yerba mate instead, something I picked up on travels to Uruguay and Paraguay.

    Check out their page they serve a sparkling matcha drink called motto its a small company but growing and only in select store I like their product and believe in no I do not work for them. I love the health benefits of tea it help with enegry,mood,appetite,boosting metabolisum,digestion,aging, full of polyfinals which help fight free radicals. I drink green tea everyday I stopped drink alchol dont drink alot of sugary sodas or juices, I like a good gun powder green tea or matcha green tea from Japan which was drank by ancient samuris before battle.Also tea is a good muscle relaxer high in antioxdants. Tea is awesome

    We think alike. I never understood why you'd drink your calories; if you're trying to cut, unless it's a protein shake or a green drink like VEGA (I do not support their new formula!) Brownies tend to be heavy in fat, but they have brownies you can make with yogurt, applesauce, or canned pumpkin (I've never tried them; I've just seen them).

    I love tea. The best thing you can buy is a water warmer, that keeps water at a preferred temperature to preserve the antioxidants. I've tried so many teas.

    I love Yogi teas. I use two tea bags per cup.

    I bought a pound of Silver Yin Zhen Pearl White Tea from Teavanna for Christmas one year, because its supposedly their highest antioxidant tea. It looks kind of like this, the taste is bland/very mild, and is way overpriced. I should also note some people believe only certain vitamins are proven antioxidants.

    Yerba Matte tea -- it's kind of like the espresso of teas. I rarely add any flavor to my teas -- if the tea is bitter (usually detox or cranberry teas), I'll add stevia.
