I just was just wondering if any of you gals are a regular tea drinker? If so, what tea/teas do you drink and how many times a day do you drink it?

Guilty. I drink caffeinated regular old Lipton tea hot in the morning or I have coffee. Then I usually switch to herbal tea in the afternoon. I use Splenda in my tea. I usually only drink 2 to maybe 3 cups a day and drink water a lot too.

I drink Lipton hot with honey. I had to do a report for my chemistry class and chose the chemical composition and breakdown of sweeteners as my subject. After finding out that basically all of the caloric sweeteners are only 4 calories per gram and the stuff that the artificial sweeteners break down into (one was formaldehyde!) and that some of them are still 3-4 calories per gram because of the bulking agents (Splenda I think, I can't remember now), I didn't see the benefit to them so I stick with the antioxidant benefits and allergy reduction benefits of local honey.

The reason I asked was because I was reading that tea consumption is really good for your general health and weightloss. There's a book, can't recall the name at the moment that i'll take out from the library tommorow and read more on it.

I've always wanted to try out teas but always been turned off cuz some of them smell so yucky.

I drink all kinds of tea, I read that tea drinking, 8 oz 1/2hr before a meal helps decrease your hunger :: I mainly drink reg old lipton or tetly, but also green tea, rasberry leaf, this vanilla somthing or another I buy a different flavor each week to try new ones, but reg tea is 1st in the day
