White tea is supposed to be healthier and is a bit more like normal tea
I used to drink 2-3 cups of green tea and lemon daily but then stopped and I do think it made some obvious beneficial impact although I had quit smoking around the same time so it's hard to measure, will buy some tomorrow. Taste wise it was a chore to drink though.

No big deal drinking green tea with flavouring as long as it's natural flavouring and not some freaky stuff.
I don't like green tea much, I drink white tea instead which is pretty much the younger version of green tea, picked from the earlier buds. It's more delicate and gives pretty much the same benefits.
I wouldn't drink green tea for weight loss, it does speed up your metabolism but not sure if it would contribute much to weight loss. If I wanted to lose weight I'd concentrate on exercise and cutting out sugar and grains as much as possible.
I know a great, all-natural detox pack that helps you lose weight, you get lots of support with it- my sister dropped two jean sizes from it and feels amazing. It costs about £100 though and lasts for 9 days but it really does work. Don't want to 'advertise' on here so let me know if you're interested and I'll point you to it.
Back to the green tea, though- don't stress about adding natural things to it such as honey. You might want to give coconut oil a go too, one of Miranda Kerr's tips. Bit strange but kind of nice.
I wouldn't drink more than 3 cups of green tea a day due to the flouride, try mixing it up with other herbal teas, there's so many out there.
