I tried drinking this for awhile and for some reason it just didnt agree with me. I wanted to be able to drink but just cant. Do you drink green tea and if so does it bother your stomach?

Yes, I like it. I think it's an anti-oxidant. So it usually does something to your stomach. My mom has acid reflux so she drinks it to help her stomach, supposedly.

Yes, I drink green tea many times a day. I like it, and I have a collection of different types of green tea. It is good for the health too. Any way, it is atleast very refreshing !

I drink green tea everyday and I don't have problems with my stomach. In your case, the best time to drink green tea is after meal. And you should not drink the at once. Try to drink it a little than after next hour try to drink it a little bit more until your stomach get used to with the ingredients in the green tea. Good luck.

My husband drinks green tea - he heard that it's good for health; an anti-oxidant. I can't drink much; my stomach starts feeling funny after more than 3 cups.

I drink green tea because to cleanse my colon. At first I didn't like the taste because it's bitter, but after a couple of months of taking it, I got used to its taste and aroma. I also tried black tea, but I've heard green teas are better. I would recommend taking in teas while they're still warm to prevent stomach cramps.

I love to drink green tea. I've really become addicted to it, in a way. I really love drinking green tea. I'm not 100% sure what it is, but all I know is that I enjoy drinking it.

Tea is good for health. It helps refreshing mind and cleans away bad things through digesting system. But I learned for people who suffers stomachache, it is better to drink black tea, and always hot, becase of the reaction taking place during the processing. Stress is the upfront hindrance for recovery, so keep in light mood is important.

Every now and then. And when I do it doesn't bother my stomach. Not sure why it didn't agree with yours. It's suppose to be a cleansing agent or something. Maybe it didn't agree with what you have eaten before drinking the tea.

I've drank green tea in the past but I've stopped - not because it disagreed with my stomach but because it disagreed with my palate. Haha! I prefer fruit teas with honey and plain English teas with milk in stead of green tea or even jasmine tea, for that matter. I just can't seem to get used to green tea's earthy taste. I just don't like it. :)

I do drink green tea but only for the health aspect, not really because I like it. I drink it cold, the colder the better..It does not bother me. Maybe the fact that the tea is green when processed has something to do with bothering your stomach, but like eating an unripe banana or something
