Will drinking green tea darken my lips?

Don't think so: Drinking green tea shouldn't darken any part of the body. Drinking black tea shouldn't darken the lips, either. In general, non-medicinal teas are fine to drink on a daily basis. Don't put much sugar into one's tea, because sugar is bad for the body (except in tiny amounts).
