A co-worker recently convinced me to try a cup. Surprising, I don't hate it and I've never been a tea drinker. I've committed to two cups a day (no sweetener). Here's the wiki on it, all sorts of (purported) benefits. At the very least, it's more water w/no calories!

Green tea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
