Everyone online has been claiming that green tea – and then more recently red and black tea – are super good for you. But then I’ve also read warnings to consumers to say that we shouldn’t believe those claims. Ya, the teas are great if you drink them by the gallon, but it’s important to be careful with how much you believe for a realistic amount like a cup. They do have some very mild benefits, but they’re mild. Also, drinking too much tea can have disadvantages, too, so I’ve read.
Which side should I believe? Is this all a matter of opinion and not science?
I’m asking here because I asked on another forum and all I got was spam. I trust it here more.
I feel that they’re good for you, but not enough to consider them actual medicine. Like, it’s a great thing to add to your diet just like all very healthy foods – superfoods. But don’t expect drinking tea, any kind of tea, to solve any of your specific health problems.
