Green Tea is the bomb-diddley. Try and get the authentic stuff from Japan and never use boiling water, it destroys a lot of the anti-oxidant properties that the tea provides. Use water just before the boil. I was addicted to it when I was in Japan, they even serve it cold for free at fast-food restaurants.

Maybe a silly question....I get green tea extract in pills from Walmart. Does that work the same as drinking green tea? Only cost about $3 too! I take about 6 a day.

If anything the pills might have more green tea than a normal pouch does when you make. Just as long as it's strictly green tea pills, then I'd suppose you're fine.

What are you talking about Sanchin? Green is a great thing to drink, or at least take in a pill form. I don't believe in miracles but I do believe that green tea works wonders.
