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.
