i drink a lot of herbal tea (various types like green tea, chamomile, lemon, ginger, peppermint, apple cinnamon, tranquilizing tea for sleep, as well as regular lipton or earl grey tea in the morning). i keep hearing and reading that there are a lot of health benefits to drinking herbal tea, with different kinds of herbal tea having different effects. one example is that green tea helps with weight loss, but i don't know whether that's fact or myth. for me there has seemed to be a correlation losing a lot of weight recently and my having started drinking a lot of green tea, and that's why i dont' stop drinking it. aside from that though, do you know of any other health benefits or risks associated with herbal tea? is there such a thing as too much of it?
