I found the above article about the benefits of green tea. I'm still not sure I believe the claims that green tea is a wonder-drink when it comes to weight loss. I am convinced that it works because the participants are not drinking other calories such as soda and juice.
Either way, tea is a wonderful drink. There is very little to no calories, depending on what tea it is. My whole family is hooked on it, because it is a nice alternative to water but it is just as refreshing and light. We go through about a gallon a day between the four of us. There are so many different flavors, and there are different options for the caffeine level.
If you are looking to break a soda habit, give iced tea a try. My mom likes to mix in a bit of fruit juice to give the tea a bit of a sweetened kick. A delicious sugar-free juice can give your tea an entirely different taste and texture.
What is your favorite tea? Do you like it best hot or cold?
