Are you one of those people who can`t function without coffee in the morning? I have the same problem too, except that I can`t do anything if I don`t get my green tea fix when I get up! I love drinking green tea all day long and I love Japanese green tea especially because of the color, aroma and the many health benefits that you get drinking it. I was sold when I read the article that says green tea helps promote weight loss and it helps in lowering the bad LDL cholesterol. I love recommending Green Tea that comes in Jasmine flavor to those who wants to start consuming green tea more often as it is milder in taste and smells really great too!

Here`s an article from http://webmd.com that I find very intersting.
Green Tea and Weight

Green tea and its extract have been shown to fight obesity and lower LDL "bad" cholesterol -- two risk factors for heart disease and diabetes -- but in very limited studies. One study in the Netherlands and a study in Japan showed that green tea did both.

In the Dutch study, participants who drank caffeinated green tea lost more weight, but even those who typically drank the decaf variety saw a decrease in their waistlines and body weight. Researchers speculated that the caffeine helps with fat oxidation.

In the Japanese study, 240 men and women were given varying amounts of green tea extract for three months. Those who got the highest amount lost fat and weight and had lower blood pressure and lower LDL "bad" cholesterol.
