I just listened to Dr. D’Adamo’s lecture with Dr. Nash. It’s listed in the newsletter and is very interesting. Highly recommended.

I also noticed that Dr. D’Adamo mentioned green tea for Methylation. I, however, prefer white tea, as it has less fluoride and less caffeine.

I did a quick search and noticed one of the moderators claimed they shared the same values in the BT/GT diet. Still, doctors never mention white tea. Does white tea contain less EGCG than green? Is green recommended over white, in general?

Thank you in advance for the information.

Which is more recommended for explorers, white or green tea?

I find drinking too much tea makes my stomach sour and overly acidic, esp when i haven't eaten in awhile or skipped a meal.

I never drink tea on an empty stomach. I'll start my day with yerba mate (good for Gatherers, not sure if the caffeine makes it bad for Explorers though) and then I drink my green tea with or after breakfast. Later in the day, I drink water, lemonade (lemon in water with stevia) or caffeine-free herbal tea, such as rooibos, peppermint, or camomile. While yerba mate, rooibos, etc, are all called "tea" they don't come from the same plant as green, white, and black tea. That particular kind of tea leaf I only drink with or right after food.

I drink green tea and not white because green is readily available and affordable. I've only seen white tea in ready-to-drink bottles for about $1 a serving, while the loose green tea costs me $3 a month. I would include both in my diet if they were closer in price.

Green tea. It is a superfood.

White tea is not rated so it is neither recommended or not recommended.

Does white tea contain less EGCG than green?


In general, yes.

But a particular white tea may contain more than some green teas.

Concentrations of EGCG in green or white tea vary by about a factor of 100.

Now that 3 1/2 years have passed since the original post, is there any more evidence to suggest that white tea might be better than green tea?  That is, in the amount of polyphenols versus the amount of caffeine?

I started cold brewing tea, not using hot water.  Let the tea sit in the pitcher for a few hours or overnight in the fridge.  Works with all teas and it tastes good.  I read it is less caffeine and more polyphenols and other good stuff in the tea that comes out with a cold brew.

My immediate thought, Easy E, was "sunbrewed tea"
and then, of course, the infused waters that are so refreshing
(mint water in particular, but all the fruit waters and herb waters, etc.).

I need to try that.  Do you just keep the pitcher in the sunlight outside for awhile?  Cold brew teas I find very good.  Trying different waters sounds interesting too.

I've been brewing sun tea this summer. I put water and tea bags (I use white or peppermint) in a pitcher and put outside in the sun while I'm at work. I like it much better than when I hot brew it and pour it on ice. It seems smoother. I still drink hot tea (I like twig) in the morning and brew it the regular way.

I tried it once with loose leaf yerba mate.  It was flavorful and a clear golden brown color.  I let it sit overnight in the fridge and it was refreshing to drink when mowing my yard!
