    Great article, Thomas. I blogged about the benefits of green tea a few months ago and that was also when I made it a regular part of my diet. I hope it has half the advantages it’s said to provide but rather it does or not, I’m glad I started on it because it’s something I absolutely love now. I honestly can’t get through a day without it!
