Could you possibly supply some supporting information/resources to backup your claims. Not that I disagree, nor do they sound far fetched (and I'll never forfeit my bottled tea B)), but it would be interesting to read. Product refinement has long since been the culprit for many nutrition debates. Heck, cooking most veggies is more than enough to denature the value of raw vitamins. Anyway, if you can..thanks.

However if you like drinking it then that's all that matters, just don't expect any great health benefits.
The most important thing to remember is to never boil green tea or else you'll just be drinking it for the taste(it will get bitter as well).
I have researched numerous journals as I always do with these kinds of things(I like things to be controlled when tested so as other factors aren't influencing it). I don't have any bookmarked but go to any college or uni. and the journals are free to use. Also you can search the net and find many references to journals in regular pages.
I'll look for some tonight and post it.

You need to use FRESH LEAVES THAT AREN'T FROM A SUPERMARKET. YOU WILL FIND THEM IN A LOCAL INDEPENDENT STALLS AT MARKETS. The supermarket tea-bags are useless since the leaves are chopped and you have no idea of how much is actuallly green tea. Most come with allsorts of other useless herbs bunged in that you don't want. Seriously, you're wasting you're money if you're not using whole leaves.

my box says 100% green tea. i believe the box. there may be trace amounts of contaminants from other herbs but it cant be much. if you get the lemongrass/green tea blend, thats when you're getting screwed.

Seriously, it's not hard to find good quality green tea and it costs the same as that celestial seasonings stuff while being dozens of times more effective as the tea in bags.
