    The caps usually don't contain caffeine.

    I guess it isnt caffeint free as the label dosent say so. But as Emma explained, caffeine content is less than black Tea and a lot less than coffee. I dont feel any 'buzz' when i take a cap. But am sure you can get a decaffeinated brand if caffeine is an issue for you.

    This is the brand i use : GREEN TEA extract

    If you're gunna have one of the pre-made brands of tea, atleast go with the Arizona, its basically tea and splenda. Its cal. free unlike SoBe. That's only if i had to choose, I would just make your own and mix in some splenda.

    First, rich in theanine and catechin,it can delay aging and remove free radicals.


    Second, polyphenols and their oxidation products in green tea are able to absorb poison of radioactive materials, and thus to help prevent cardiovascular diseases.


    Third, it can prevent and treat radiation injury. Fourth, caffeine in tea can enhance the excitement process of cerebral cortex and plays a role of refreshing.

    I am more a fan of Matcha. According to a research it has almost double the amount of antioxidants as green tea and you can get it at whole foods too. Green tea is good too though, I try to mix it up so my body doesn't get too used to anything. Matcha also contains more caffeine.

    Here’s how the caffeine content of matcha and other teas compare (per 8 ounce serving):

    Matcha tea — 70 mg

    Black tea — 42 mg

    White tea — 28 mg

    Oolong tea — 27 mg

    Green tea — 25 mg"

    Are there any clinical trials to support these claims https://www.liquidimageco.com/matcha-vs-green-tea/ or does this rest on the assertions of the 'alternative' therapies market? In short, in this science or quackery? Just curious!

    There are many benefits of drinking green tea. I'll list some below.


    1. Overall improvement in health- Polyphenols in green tea serve a major role in preventing the formation of free radicals in the body. It also has Catechins which are natural anti-oxidants, they help in preventing cell damage. This Catechin is called Epigallocatechin Gallate.
    2. Keep you awake- it's no secret that tea contains Caffeine and L-theanine. Both these compounds have stimulating effects on the brain and keep you up without the jittery effects of coffee.
    3. Fat loss and increase metabolism - Green tea has shown to increase the metabolism rate and improve fat burning.
