Hi everyone!  I bought the Live Right for your Type book yesterday and read that I should be drinking green tea often.  I am planning on buying some today, but I know they are not all created equal, so I would love some recommendations on brands to try.  Thank you!

I drink a cup Stash brand organic lemon & ginger green tea each morning.  I can find it at a couple of my local grocery stores.  Sometimes I have to hunt around for that particular one, but the brand seems fairly common.  I have a problem taking green tea on an empty stomach in the morning.  It makes my stomach a little queasy.  But I like this one (the lemon is actually lemongrass) with a slice of lemon and a teaspoon of agave.  Very tasty - and no queasiness!  There are a zillion brands of green tea out there.  I hope you find one that you enjoy.  

And by the way, welcome, leeyah87!

Make sure you read the label because there can be a lot of additives. I like the one that O in Virginia mentioned, that's one of my favorites, there is also Kombucha tea which I think is nice. I buy organic as well.

My favorite green tea is genmaicha, which is blended with toasted brown rice.  There are a number of brands, generally in natural food stores . . Eden is a pretty good store brand.  The best one is through Dr. D's store, called Mr. Itaru's tea.

I also like Matcha, which is powdered green tea. Two Hills is a brand with a good Matcha.

This is my favorite flavor from MIghty Tea. I love the taste and aroma of jasmine.

http://www.amazon.com/Mighty-L.....309040711&sr=8-2

I also drink Stash green tea

And I like Haiku twig tea (but it's from Japan and now questionable to purchase)  I happened to have
bought 15 boxes before the nuclear incident.  Probably have 8 boxes left...but when that runs
out, I'm probably not going to buy it again.

I buy tea from Teavana stores which are located in many malls throughout the country and also
online.

http://tea.teavana.com/?D=green+tea&Nty=1&N=0&Dk=0&Ntt=green+tea

This one is my favorite.
http://www.teavana.com/the-teas/green-teas/p/jasmine-dragon-phoenix-pearls-green-tea

And then I often buy any interesting green tea I haven't tried that is organic from the health food store.  Never found organic green tea to have additives.

I've tried Mr. Ituru's green tea.  I prefer the jasmine flavor over the toasted brown rice.  Just
me.

What about Pu-erh tea? I loooove the taste but I'm not sure if it's an approved tea as it's fermented and aged and much different than regular green teas.

Does anyone know if it's ok to drink?

I would think only raw Pu-erh would classify as what we call green tea, and even then probably questionable.    The types of Pu-Erh I am familiar with are heavily fermented and aged for many years.

That "aged green tea" sounds more like a black tea, from a nutritional standpoint.  I'd personally avoid it since black tea is an avoid for me.

I personally drink two different kinds of green tea. Usually I drink the "temple of heaven" loose green tea from Fairway Market. It's the least expensive green tea I can find! I'd rather be able to afford to drink it in larger quantities, and this is still tastier than any of the bagged green teas I've found anywhere. I also buy Carrington brand green tea bags, for those times when a bag is more convenient. It's not very strong or flavorful, but it's very economical and I like to keep it in the house.

What I like about the Carrington brand (besides it being $1 a box at my local supermarket) is how it's just pure tea. I can get camomile, peppermint, or green tea and not worry about random additives like I do with Celestial Seasonings. I also like how it's minimally packaged, and I don't have extra wrappings around each tea bag to dispose of.

I like Stash green tea, it is easy to find at the local grocery store. It is important to use very hot, but not boiling, water for green tea. Boiling water will make it taste bitter. I let my tea bag steep for about 3 -5 minutes and I save the bag for a second cup. The second cup is still tasty and has little-to-no caffeine. I have a Chinese friend who's mother always threw out the first pot of green tea (saving the leaves) so there would be less caffeine.

Hi,

I also drink Matcha tea (powdered green tea)  It is a very good quality.  Like GR said green tea should not be made with boiling water just hot water.  

This particular powdered tea can also be had cold with ice.

Hope you enjoy whatever green tea you choose.

Ok.. so I just got on the Matcha bandwagon!  Omygosh!  I make it with a Tsp or Matcha and some soy milk and stevia and it's so good!  creamy and delicious and a bit of a rush!

Is the caffeine the same as in coffee?   I really would like to know that it's not... sort of like my other fav tea is not.. Yerba Mate.  

I get a different type of high from Yerba.. softer... nicer...  

BUT with Matcha I don't think I can just drink it all day willy nilly like I do yerba!  

Thoughts?  Experiences?

I can't drink yerba mate or ANY form of green tea "all day willy-nilly" without it affecting my sleep.

There is considerably less caffeine in green tea than in coffee, unless you make it super, super strong.  Mate has a different stimulant.

I don't think we are supposed to drink green tea "all day".  My personal SWAMI says two cups per day.

I make green tea and also hibiscus leaf tea or tulsi and mix them half and half.  That way I can drink more cups per day.  On the rare days when I drink straight green tea I find that I don't want more than 2 cups.  

I buy my teas in pound bulk packages which cost a lot less per cup.  Not the superior quality of genuine matcha or  Dr. D's green tea with toasted brown rice, but saves a bundle of money.  I do keep some of Dr. D's sip right 4 your type tea on hand for my blood type for special treats.  It IS special!

A good technique for green tea specifically is to let it steep at room temp. for 2 hours or so.  Get much more nutritional value from the tea and the caffeine is better balanced and much more of the other good stuff is in the tea.  The tea has a sweeter and fuller taste also.  Many herbal teas also work well this way.  Works well for yerba mate too.

I like this method because i dislike hot beverages.

Avoid getting teas from India or China also.  There may be some good ones from there, but i read a lot about industrial pollutants from rain leeching into the soils there, and the teas absorb these pollutants.

If you have been a coffee drinker the "Gunpowder Green Tea" is a good choice. It's a stronger tasting tea without much caffeine. It has been my "go to" tea for many years!

I like Whole Foods' 365 brand green tea.  It's organic and not too expensive.  I drink it hot, but I also cold brew 5 bags in a 32oz jar and then add agave nectar.  It's very refreshing this way.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I also like Tazo Zen tea.  This is "a harmonious blend of green tea with lemongrass and & spearmint."  It's way more expensive, though.

While both the Tazo Zen and the 365 teas come in bags, the Tazo teas are individually wrapped, while the 365 are wrapped in packs of 10.

Someone said to not get teas from China or India.  From what countries should we get our tea? I dont know of many that grow tea. Rooibos is from Souitn Africa & is the main one I drink. I think there are some South American teas, but I don't think teas are labeled all the time......

Japan has very strict regulations for the way they make their tea, i read it is stricter than for the U.S. or EU.  I also read South India grows good tea.  I'm no tea expert but enjoy drinking tea.  I'm sure there is good tea that comes from China too.  There have been reports of heavy pesticide and pollutant levels in many teas grown in China and also in India.

I love rooibos tea!

I think that Japan's food regulation overall is more stringent than the US, Canada or the EU. The problem here is that there are so many producers that one is at a loss as to who is legitimate quality and who is not.

I buy Japanese Organic at my local health food store based mainly on its origin. It is probably the most expensive option available but on a price per cup basis it is cheaper and more health friendly than other beverage choices.

I don't think we are supposed to drink green tea "all day".


Just saying....but my husband was told to drink 5 cups of green tea per day by the shift at the clinic.....That pretty much  means he's drinking it most of every day.  I'm supposed to drink 3 cups...which means I'm drinking one cup with each meal or after a meal.

Wanted to point out that Sip Right Teas contain green tea.

I know I wrote in 2011 that I preferred Jasmine green tea....I still like it but got hooked on
Mr Ituri's green tea in the past few years and generally drink it at least 2x per day.

What about radiation in Japan from the nuclear problem of 2011?
One of our friends said she wouldn't buy Japanese tea because of that.  
Is there a time when it becomes safer. From my knowledge of science, I would think a long time!
