Alot of people have heard about green tea and decided to research green tea.
Also i'll put one question to death
Q:Does acne improve when drinking green tea?
A:OH HELL YES!!!!!

If you want the highest antioxidants than drink rooibos tea. Rooibos has SOD, which is extremely potent. However green tea and white tea also have tons of antioxidants and other benefits so they are still recommended over rooibos. Cocoa has even more antioxidants than green tea.
If you want to lower your cholesterol, improve fat metabolization(some say related to acne), then the best bet buy far is Pu-Erh tea. It's hard to get and comes in hundreds of varieties and is usally really old. Oh ya, you grate the stuff in your tea like parmesean in pasta. This tea works better at lowering cholesterol and raising good cholesterol than any medication tested. Green tea and white tea also do a good job with this.
To get the recommended anounts of phenols drink 2-3 cups of good green tea a day. 1 cup of white tea. With rooibos or pu-erh I'm not sure how much to drink but if you want to lower cholesterol and such, 1-2 cups of pu-erh a day will do it.
Finally there is green tea powder. It's the best as you actually ingest the tea leaves. It's very very expensive. I'm wondering what makes it so expensive though. Perhapse you could just grind up your loose leaf into a powder, or better yet, grind up your white tea. Anyway I'll look into that and get back to you(I know a few tea distributors and I'll ask what's so special).
