I have been drinking green tea once in a day since more than a year now and I am convinced that this is truly a magical tea to drink. Such are the changes I have experienced in me as a result of drinking this tea.
There are various methods to make green tea @ home but one of the best ways to drink green tea is to have it with Lemon and honey. This is esp. beneficial if you plan to drink green tea for the additional benefit of weight loss apart from the other benefits that it brings.

Here is how I prepare green tea...
Ingredients to prepare green tea
|Dry Green tea leaves|
Water - 200 ml
Natural Honey - 1 tbsn (I use Dabur Honey)
Lemon - 1/2 slice
Process to prepare green tea
Take one 1 tspn of green tea leaves and put into a glass.
Boil the water and pour the boiled water into the glass containing the green tea leaves.
Close the glass with lid and keep it aside for around 3-4 minutes.
Next, remove the lid and stir. You will notice that the leaves that were dry initially have now unfurled and have become like torn green leaves
Pour into a separate glass filtering out the tea leaves.
Since the tea would be very hot, allow it to cool down a bit and become warm. This is because honey must never be added into hot water/liquid - it turns harmful for our body.
Once it becomes warm, squeeze the lemon into it. Add honey, stir well and drink it immediately.
We can drink green tea after 1 or 2 hours post breakfast or lunch or in the evenings.
NEVER DRINK GREEN TEA IN THE MORNING EMPTY STOMACH
