Like certain types of food, Green Tea is one of the few which comes with everything good. In fact, green tea has been used for weight loss and cleaning up of toxins within the body and this has been practiced by dieticians, pharmacists and even doctors. Drinking green tea each day is a healthy practice but did you know that there are actually many other ways that you can use green tea for apart from drinking? We list out the top 10 below.
