What benefits of drinking green tea have you had?...I've tried it a few times but I can't really get over the grassy taste.

I am not green tea drinker but I do sometimes because my husband said that it's good for my health! I never noticed the grassy taste of it, but I don't really like the taste also. I heard that it's full of antioxidants and it can help your body flush out toxins.

I think honey helps the flavor. I'm not crazy about it, with sugar or artificial sweeteners, but I love it with honey.

I totally love green tea! It's full of anti-oxidants, and is good for your health, helps flush your system, for one. And, it has caffeine. If I have green tea around, I'll drink it rather than coffee. My favorite is Arizona green tea with ginseng and honey, I've never noticed a grassy taste with it.

I tried decaff green tea so maybe that's my problem...I'll have to try the regular kind...

Could have been because of being decaf. Seems like the process to decaffeinate stuff that has it naturally messes with the flavor. Caffeine isn't bad for you, at least not in itself, as with most things, it's excess that's the problem.

Green tea has more antioxidants required for health. Its so good for health. Normal tea doesnot have much antioxidants

I've read in a lot of places how great green tea is for you. With that in mind I bought some and tried to change from coffee to green tea but I just couldn't do it. Green tea is kinda tasteless I found and the taste it did have kinda sucked so I'm back on coffee.
