Green tea's great. But lots of other things are better for the heart. Instead of drinking tea, try to focus on a healthy weight, regular physical activity and a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Nothing wrong with green tea, but it won't help as much as being a normal weight and getting regular exercise!
Overhyped. Green tea is the latest in a long line of overhyped nutritional products. Claims include weight loss, better health, longer life, better endurance. Do not believe the hype. Yes green tea contains some anti-oxidants and phytonutrients, but it still contains caffiene which is a stimulant and has duiretic properties. Too much green tea is not good for you.
