WebMD has a great short article on the benefits of tea.

I'm not disparaging coffee in anyway shape or form. I've found the switch to tea beneficial in a couple areas. I'm still going to have my Americano a couple time a week, but no more drinking coffee all day.

What I've noticed is I can drink a lot more when I'm drinking tea, reuse a bag for instance, and get lots of water. It's warming this time of year. And I find the caffeine is more spread out, less of a spike. Which makes me wonder if this might be the source of the potential weightloss benefits.

I have my cup of americano every morning...just can't give it up. But instead of coffee during the day I have switched to tea. I especially love green tea but have a large variety in my tea drawer. I feel alot better and there are no more crashes around 4. I sleep better too.

I brew a large pitcher of weakish green tea from loose tea leaves every morning. I pour and reheat it as desired. I drink it as a beverage, not for its medicinal qualities (if any).

Good idea with the pitcher, I'll never make it through the summer drinking hot tea Very Happy

So you're naturally drawn to green tea without want/need of it's potential health benefits? I find it grassy. I like oolong though, which is a bit more that direction. Straight black tea is perfectly appealing to me, seems quite sustainable as a habit.

I'm curious, how long have you been drinking a large pitcher of green tea a day?

Yep, drink green tea. If you find it a bit grassy there is heaps of flavours out there

It won't happen over night, but if you don't give up it WILL happen.
