    Thanks for bringing to my attention that Darjeeling green tea helps with fat burning. I’m starting to exercise in the mornings, and I’m trying to adjust my diet so I can get in shape. I would love to accelerate my rate of fat burn, so maybe I could start drinking Darjeeling green tea to help with that.
