My Mom's doctor made her quit drinking green tea. He said you shouldn't drink it if you have high blood pressure. I thought he was nuts, but I'm not a doctor...

Depends how much of it you drink.... It still has caffeine, though not as much as black tea (does the Dr know that it's green, not black, or did he just hear tea?), but if you drink 10 cups of it, wouldn't be a good thing.

I love green tea, but I didn't know it affected your blood pressure.

But, I'd have to say my absolute favorite is Jasmine tea.

It's the caffeine.. or rather the caffeine like chemical in tea that can raise your blood pressure. If you only have a couplathree cups a day, I wouldn't worry about it.

He knew it was green tea. She was drinking it because she had heard it would help her lose weight. I just assumed that it was because she was already on a diuretic.(sp)

Well, the green tea I buy is naturally caffine free. I drink tea with caffine in the mornings, but the rest of the time, it's decaffinated green tea.
