    1.drinking four or more cups per day gives good result when using it for weight loss.
    2.i use tetley company tea as well as lipton company tea.
    green tea has fewer flavors than black tea, you need not drink it hot .
    3.while preparing tea you should not boil the tea. So once you prepare the tea you should have it either hot or can put it in refrigerator and have it after getting cool.you should not microwave it

    yes what you are doing is the correct procedure.what i wanted to say is once you prepared the tea should not put it on fire or microwave because it loses the taste.If the water temperature is too hot, the tea may become bitter. Preferred temperature for green tea is usually usually between 165 and 170 degrees F, which is roughly the temperature you’ll get if you let boiling water sit for a few minutes
