Green tea is really good for you. It boosts your immune system and is good for your teeth too. It is also suppose to aide in weight loss. I always buy mine naturally decaffinated so I am not up all night.

Tea is beneficial to your health overall. But specifically you want to drink the unprocessed, organic tea(ex. green tea). Those are the types that contain most of the antioxidants and even micronutrients that you would not find in many foods. Antioxidants counter hazardous antigens in your body, cleanses the system by stimulating blood flow to the extremities, accelerates metabolism(great for losing weight)and even gives you more energy. I use green tea as a substitute to coffee.
