Re: Green Tea? Which One

I am drinking a one cup of green tea everyday from one year. I started seeing its benefits after one month like weight loss, glowing skin and healthy hair. Now other members of my family are also taking it.

You can use green tea from any company. Because green tea is rich in antioxidants and it gives us many benefits. But even if you want the best quality green tea for you, you can go with Japnese Matcha Green Tea, which is very beneficial for your health.

Try Japanese Matcha Green Tea. Matcha Green tea is 10 times healthier than regular green tea.

Green tea has impressive effects on the skin and hair benefits.

Re: Green Tea? Which One

Hi Feisty I've had the same issue.  I think Tamox & green tea are too much for my post chemo stomach.  I have converted to green tea powder in cereal, smoothies or a bit of yoghurt & no further problems.  Hope you're well. Amanda Waitrose have quite a nice green tea a clearspring matcha blend in a green packet. My husband found an almost tasteless one in fortnum & mason, by far the least offensive I've tried, not that expensive, but a bit impractical to get. All the best xx

This is just a tip / word of caution. I have also started drinking a cup of green tea with lemon in the morning (the brand wasn't sencha so I can't comment on that particular type.) When I took the green tea and lemon with food, such as porridge, I felt okay afterwards but on a couple of occasions when I drank it on an empty stomach I suffered from horrendous indigestion afterwards so it is making me wonder if I should stop using it altogether.

Re: Green Tea? Which One

Hi Amanda

There was a thread about this a while ago and I was encouraged to buy Japanese Sencha tea and given the name of suppliers, but found a nice one, a bit weird at first but drinkable (I haven't tried the lemon but may add that to my next one)in Sainsbury's. It wasn't in the tea aisle, but was with the health food like 'free from' range. It didn't cost too much either.

I am a real tea drinker and love 'normal' tea with milk, but have got used to Japanese Sencha, I have tried and really disliked other green tea brands.

Good luck with your search

Hi,
I am also a fan of white tea too. When I was dx in 2004, I converted onto green tea and green tea with lemon. I then read about white tea being even higher in antioxidents, and when i tried it I was hooked! It's not as bitter as green tea can be, and tastes really lovely(I think so anyway!)
By the way, both drunk without milk, and I leave the tea bag in whilst I drink it.
I drink clipper tea, by the way

Try white tea as well (as in the type of tea, not tea with milk lol).

Any organic one. Apparantly has more catechins/polyphenols than green or black teas.

Very delicate tea, nice without milk, no bitter after taste.

Thanks Elinda - I had read ages ago that lemon was good, but not the reason why. That's very helpful - thanks.

Re: Green Tea? Which One

Glad this subject was brought up again as it reminded me of something I read in a magazinelast week. Apparantly drinking green tea with lemon increases the uptake of catechins. Finty have you heard of this?
I've had a quick internet search and attached a not particularly great link on this:

Hi Amanda

I get mine from the Japan Centre in London. The best ones are supposed to be in this order (all Japanese unless specified):

Sencha-uchiyama
Gyokuru #1
Sencha #1
Sencha #2
Gyokuru #2
Pilo chun emperor (Chinese)
Gyokuru
Matcha
Yunnan (chinese)

The Japan Centre has a website, but the best teas aren't included on it. You can email them and they are very helpful.

Or this lady sells Sencha and has an interesting case history:

I think her website is called Tea4life.

Green Tea? Which One

Hi everyone

Going back to last summer whilst I was undergoing chemo there was a thread on diet and some suggestions for the best green tea but I can't remember the name of them. Can anyone recommend a really good green tea?

Thanks Amanda xx
