I gave up caffeine a few years ago. Now, I even have a difficult time drinking soda. Coffee is the highest, then tea (hot or cold) and the 3rd is soda.

I discovered Yerba Mate about 15 years ago and I've been using it ever since. Naturally I'm a big fan, so I encourage anyone with a sincere interest in good health to make the switch form coffee especially, and even from green tea, to yerba mate. Click this link to learn more about the benefits of yerba mate. The Guayaki brand is slightly more expensive than some other brands, but the flavor of Guayaki yerba mate is unbeatable.

Enjoy!

Another thing i wanted to add besides that Casein is bad for the Green Tea Polyphenols is that if you want to enhance them then adding Lemon juice or Vitamin C makes them work better according to a Purdue study.

Citrus Juice, Vitamin C Give Staying Power To Green Tea Antioxidants

I'm wondering now if adding dolomite powder to my tea is bad. (Powdered calcium.)
Would that be the same as milk because I normally add that too.

I would think that would be o.k. as it's the Milk Protein Casein and not the Calcium that has an negative effect on the Polyphenols.
