Often people ask me what is the healthiest variety of green tea. Don’t worry about which green tea is the healthiest, they are all in general healthy, assuming you buy them fresh. The health benefits will depend on the art of consuming green tea and knowing what tea fits you the best.
Time of the day
Green teas are the best for during the day, while in the evening you can better go for a caffeine free flower tea.
Before or after meals?
Never drink green tea on an empty stomach, this might result in stomach ache and diarrhea. Don’t listen to diet gurus, telling you this is the effect of their successful diet recipe. I work for a tea shop, but I never tell my customers that green tea is good for for everyone and ad anytime.
Do you feel cold or hot?
If you feel cold, don’t drink green teas. Black teas are much better to increase body temperature.
Summer or winter?
Related to the previous paragraph: green tea cools down your body which is better in summers, while black tea tend to increase your body temperature, which is better in winters.
In general black tea fits older people more, since they are more vulnerable to cold,
It all comes down to when you drink it, and your body condition. For more information visit: Loose Leaf Green Tea Information
I am not a doctor, when you feel sick, consult a medical practitioner. The above is my opinion/advice gained from my education and experience in Chinese teas.
