Four days after quitting green tea I got a cold. I hate colds. In fact, I don’t allow colds. Two days later I didn’t have a cold anymore and green tea helped me beat it. (I have this routine to kill a cold in its tracks as soon as I spot any symptoms).
Am even convinced that quitting green tea made it possible for me to get a cold. (The last time I had a cold was three years ago).
So my conclusion is that when it comes to drinking green tea the benefits outweigh the downsides.
I will just limit myself to two, maximum three cups per day and I will only use leaves, not tea bags.
So the caffeine issue has been solved. Coffee, no. Green tea, yes. In moderation.
Moderation and coffee being impossible in my case. Never going back to it. Coffee free since the 1st of July.

I’m curious, what difference does it make to use leaves instead of tea bags?

There is plastic on those bags. That’s one reason. The second reason is that – partly because they are cheap – I use four per cup… I overdo everything. With leaves I am a bit more careful cause it costs more money that way. Last reason, it encourages me to use less, cause over here I can’t buy that stuff so easily. Need to go to a specific shop to get it. Just using my own laziness against my own lack of moderation.
