Anyone drink Green Tea?

  1. I've come to the conclusion that any herb on the earth is a gift from God that we are to use and enjoy. I've been doing alot of research and have been drinking 2-3 cups of green tea a day. It is very beneficial to the body and contains the most powerful antioxidant, polyphenol, which is linked to reduce the aging process, cleaning your teeth, reduced risk of cancer (up to 44%) and increased state of mind and well being.

    Anyone else drink green tea? I've heard the leaves are that of a specific kind of evergreen tea.

    Not quite three cups a day but I try to have a cup or so a week. Otherwise I like to drink detox (peach or regular), jasmine, or mandarine tea. mmm yummy.

    i like green tea... i used to drink it a lot more, as a substitute for my morning coffee, but lately i just drink coffee usually cuz my boyfriend is one of those tea-is-for-pussies kinds of people (well not really but he seems to be very prejudiced against healthy food).

    I have come to the conclusion that green tea is one of the best things you can put into your body. I suggest you read about it. (and DRINK it - there are lots of tasty green tea blends if you don't care for the taste of plain green tea)

    I drink green tea all the time. But I also read a study about a correlation between green tea (and other hot beverages) and throat cancer. It seems that pouring hot stuff down your throat is bad for it. So maybe smoking mj and drinking hot stuff is not a very good combination for your throat. I still drink green tea and think it's one of the healthiest things out there, but now I wait for it to cool down a bit before I start drinking.
     
  11. I always drink it cold. Arizona sells their GT in 1/2 gal. cartons, like milk! I go through one of those every three or four days. I think GT and MJ are a great pair.

    blue21, I read about a correlation between charred meat and throat cancer. But screw that. I'll just drink more green tea with my burnt ass meat :D My point is that basically ANYTHING that could POSSIBLY mutate a cell is correlated with cancer. So, don't be too careful or you won't have any fun.

    Yes, anything charred will cause cancer, and cancer is a leading killer in North America, so I think it's a good idea to try to cut back on charred foods. Of course you should eat and drink what you want and enjoy life. But the real problem occurs when you have something daily or many times a day, and green tea is that sort of thing. I would not feel comfortable having four cups of tea a day along with a joint or two. I like to minimize as much risk as possible, and drinking cooler green tea is a good solution.

    By the way, they did studies and found that drinking green tea makes you life something like 6% longer. :) Just another reason to drink more!

    if im not mistaken, the healthiest thing to put in one's body is a handful of hemp seeds, once a day

    remember tho guys...
    too much of anything, even green tea, is BAD;)

    I had an awful night tonight, I mean it was just horrible. I was so stressed on the drive home and I stopped at Cumberland farms and got three bottles of green tea with honey (they were on sale so hey why not?). I'm half way through my second bottle and I feel alot beeter. Maybe its because I've calmed down a bit but I don't know drinking this tonight at least helped me chill. And plus it tastes damn good if you get the right kind!
     
  15. I...need...MORE DAMN GREEN TEA!

    Well, christ, I've made myself out to be some sort of Green Tea addict or something. I suppose I do drink a good deal of it, but perhaps the 1/2 gallon per three days is a little exaggerated. :D I was just happy about green tea at the moment. :rolleyes:

    I do, however, always drink it cold. Not hot. :redhot: I also drink lots of water and other things. I would liken my green tea intake to that of coffee for a moderate coffee drinker.

    Mmmm. :liplick: It's good. <sip>

    I drink a pitcher of iced green tea every day while working.

    It's pretty simple to make, tastes better than regular water, and having the pitcher within arm's reach ensures that I drink enough water every day. Makes you pee like crazy to drink that much though. But it doesn't seem to hurt me, so I don't see any reason why to stop. :)

    Tea is good.

    Thats a great substitute for coffee. Your boyfriends a ***** for thinking like that. Why be prejudice about health foods? Drink what you like, your boyfriend will do the same. Peace-
