Default Newbie needs help with Green tea - PLEASE!

Hello all,

I am new to tea (other than Lipton) and especially green tea.

My father (a diabetic) has recently discovered the benefits of green
tea and has asked me to research it. I must admit I have found this
quite daunting. I too am interested in green tea but where to start?
I figured this would be the best place.

Though I have found several places that sell green tea I have found
nothing about qulities and quantities. For instance:

- What about quality? Are the green teas in bags at the supermarket
beneficial? If not, where to start with price in mind? I see many
teas selling for $30 for a few grams. This seems impossible
practically speaking for 2 people to maintain.

- Quantity? How many cups does an ounce of green tea powder or leaves
make/ I am trying to see how inexpensively this can be done.

I am interested firstly in the health benefits and secondly in the
taste/pleasure aspect.


Well, I am not sure where you live, but you can buy green tea online at Halmari tea (https://www.halmaritea.co.uk/teas/ha...een-tea-bags/). They are a premium tea brand with superior quality tea sourced from the tea estates of Assam. You will also get it at a very affordable rate, much cheaper than your local vendor. 2-3 cups of green tea on a regular basis can actually lead to a lot of health benefits, including keeping diabetes in control.
