Green tea has been established as a healthy beverage that may even help repair DNA damage.  Additionally it is quite fashionable to consume green tea.  It gives oneself the feeling:  “I am in the hip health-concerned crowd!  Maybe I am a health nerd!”

Interestingly, the familiar black teas that we drink in the Southern U.S.A. come from the same plant as green tea, Camellia sinensis.  The assorted teas differ in the mode of processing.

I know several people who have faithfully gotten onto the green tea bandwagon and have suffered from heart palpitations and headaches.  I completely understand that these can be general symptoms of too much caffeine.

My proposal is that coffee, black tea, chocolate, green tea and the like have slightly different concentrations of caffeine stimulant molecules/metabolites and thus changing caffeine habits (in effect, dosage amounts) may make a person feel yucky.

With all of that said, here is my favorite green tea, which I (a health nerd) drink sparingly:

Lipton Green Tea Bags, Mandarin Orange Green tea

Orange 20 ct (Pack of 6)
