i keep reading all over the place about how green tea is an amazing elixir that will help me loose weight and feel more fantabulous. anyone here have any experience with the benefits of green tea? i am a couple of weeks into a new lifestyle (i refuse to use the word "diet") because there is too much Shecky going around for my own good. so on top of watching what i eat (calorie counting) and exercise (walking, and eventually running, every other day for 30 minutes to start, tracked with Nike+) i wanted to do some good in terms of my liquid intake. i love black teas but i have yet to really get into green tea - however i am thinking that drinking it iced (actually, drinking it cool, i do not like ice cold water) as a substitute for some of my water intake might be worth it since it sounds like the benefits are huge. any brands we like? suggestions for brewing it cold? etc... i usually get my black tea (irish breakfast to be exact) from Adagio; i know they carry a bunch of green teas also. i also seem to be reading that adding sugar and milk to green tea pretty much kills all the benefits of it. i would never add milk to green tea but i would like sugar/splenda if i have it hot, cold i can live without any sweetener i think.
