Here are some benefits of green tea that I've found online.
For those who didn't know, Green tea helps with:
Weight Loss. Green tea increases the metabolism. The polyphenol found in green tea works to intensify levels of fat oxidation and the rate at which your body turns food into calories.

Just 2 months ago, I started drinking green tea, not replacing water, but drinking a few cups a day and the rest water. I've tried a few brands of it and the only brand that is more acceptable to me is the green tea from Red Sun.
This green tea has the scent of normal green tea, but when you drink it, the taste is not strong. It has a little of the green tea taste, but if you didn't pay attention, you will think that you're drink water, or maybe it is just me.
This is how it looks like when you get a packet out.
What I'll do to the tea is:
I'll fill the cup with some water, not too much, because we're pour the water away after that.
PS. Sorry for the blurry image. I only noticed it after uploading.
Then I'll use a 'fishing' method, by pulling the tea bag up and down to rinse the tea bag a little and pour the water away.
Then I'll fill the cup full to the brim and its ready to drink!(:
So for green tea 'haters' like me, If you really want to try drinking green tea, you can try this method. The tea would probably taste more acceptable to you!(:
After drinking green tea for 2months, I don't feel anything different about my body. But I did lose some weight. HEHHEH. Then again, it is not that much too.
But Green tea did well to my face! I would have acne popping out every now and then. It is not something serious or often, but it is noticeable.
After drinking green tea, I've realize acne don't pop out on my face as often anymore. To be honest. I don't think I've seen more than 5 acne popping out on my face for the past 2 months.
I not sure how did this happened too and I can't guarantee that it will help people facing acne problem. But at least it worked for me!(:
For those who likes sesame or burnt taste / smell, you can try the brown rice green tea. I've tried it while I was in Korea and I love it! When I came back I bought one for myself too. It isn't the same brand / type it is what I've found in our local supermarket.
Sometimes I would like a break from drinking just green tea but I didn't want to drink fizzy drinks. So I'll give myself a break but still drinking something green tea related...Which is...
Plum Green Tea from Gongcha!
Since I can choose how sweet I want it to be, I'll always get it at the lowest they serve.
They do serve without sugar / sweet syrup and I've tried it...I must say...It is not a pleasant experience..HEHHEH!
That's all for today!!(:
