Is green tea better than black?

Is it true the green tea contains no caffeine and purifies of toxins? And how many cups one needs to drink in order for it to be beneficial?

I read an article on green tea just the other day. It said that green tea and cantaloupe are good for losing weight. Has something to do with burning off fat. Forget what the ingredient in each of them that causes the fat to burn off more quickly. Haven't tried it yet but now that the holidays are over I think I will give it a try. To be honest with you I had forgotten about it so thank you for reminding me.

You might be interested in checking out this site You might want to check out this site www.wulongforlife.com which gives more info on green tea. My response was for a diet of green tea and canteloupe only nothing else.

Green tea is better than black. From what I've read though, white tea might be the best of all of the teas... Don't quote me on that, though. I would assume it has to do with an ingredient that is in its prime in certain growing stages of the tea, those being the earlier stages (white tea is the youngest tea, followed by green tea)
