    Bully for you. You've got a citation.

    It's just not that important. Untwist the knickers already. Sheesh.

    Would it make you happy if perhaps what I read was on a site that was peddling Rooibos tea? Maybe it was. I honestly don't remember.

    Just relax and have a cup of whatever kind of tea you like.

      What's wrong with getting corrected? Did I bruise your ego? I thank people who correct me when I am wrong.

        I love green tea! Do you drink yours with lemon? If not, you ought to--vitamin C ups the absorption of green tea's antioxidants, including EGCG, your heart's best friend--and it cancels out tea's negative effects on iron absorption.

        Steeping tea too long will definitely give you a stomach ache. I steep mine for 5-7 minutes without problems, though. I drink Bigelow Organic Green Tea, which you can get in a big box for relatively cheap at Sam's Club where I live. The caffeine hardly effects me; it makes me a bit more alert, and I'll admit, a bit more prone to dancing around my kitchen, but nothing like what coffee does to me (which is something like this....*someone taps me on the shoulder* AHHHHH! STEP BACK!! HANDS WHERE I CAN SEE THEM!!!!)

        Could it just be the excess water that makes you bloat? If I drink a whole glass of water at once, I'll definitely feel bloated, especially if I'm drinking it after a meal. I'd rather sip my cup of tea slowly....mmm.

          Maybe you'd get better results if you spelled it correctly?

            Rooibos Tea Benefits
            not a study but it does say it has more than 50 x SOD than green tea(defininition of SOD: an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of superoxide into hydrogen peroxide and oxygen) So 50 x the antioxidants. There are much more results if you do a search for "ROOIBOS benefits" but I am really just wondering if there is something more personal going on between KathyH and Paleobird than that she is curious to know why green tea has been so maligned. Sheesh is right.

              I think Kathy is just in a particularly argumentative mood today.

                  You didn't correct anything. You asked for a citation that I freely admitted I don't have.

                  Thank you for finding that.

                  Severely twisted knicker syndrome.

                    I tend to get bloated from tea as well, but not painfully so (as you imply), and it goes down quite quickly (yay diuretic!). I think my issue is simply the volume of tea I consume sometimes.
                    "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

                      I corrected you by saying that rooibos tea does not have more antioxidants than green tea.

                          I was going to post taking exception to the statement that Mate 'packs a caffeine punch' but after looking into it apparently there is some controversy about it...but I can guarantee that if Yerba Mate does contain caffeine it acts differently. I am supremely sensitive to caffeine...even green tea or dark chocolate makes my heart go crazy, but Mate does not have this effect at all.

                          Yerba Mate and Green Tea Similarities
                          Yerba mate and green tea both contain stimulants. Green tea contains caffeine, although black tea has two to three times more caffeine than green tea. Yerba mate contains xanthines, alkaloids that have the same type of stimulating properties as caffeine. Although some retailers claim that yerba mate does not contain caffeine, chemical analysis shows that it does contain caffeine, according to Raintree Nutrition. The caffeine in yerba mate, however, may not cause the typical side effects of caffeine, such as jitteriness, headache, irritability, nausea or diarrhea. The caffeine in green tea's effects may be moderated by the effects of L-theanine, so that both drinks may be free of the usual side effects of caffeine. Both substances appear to have antioxidants benefits.

                            This seems to be a problem of the chemical decaffeination process. It has increased the amount of tannins in the green tea which seems to be irritating the inner lining of your digestive system, thus causing the bloating. Switch to a different brand and stick to 2 cups a day.
