The best way to enjoy all that green tea has to offer is to drink it regularly—approximately 2-3 cups per day. It is best to drink loose leaf tea over using tea bags because loose leaf tea is usually of a higher quality. To add variety to your green tea, you can add a variety of nutritious flavorings, like orange peel, ginger, rose, or jasmine. If tea just isn’t your thing, you might enjoy some other green tea products. Green tea ice cream, green tea smoothies, and green tea cheesecakes might not be quite as effective at fighting cancer, but they sure taste good!
