We drink green tea daily as well. Our daughter takes a mixture of green tea, nettle tea and either fruit or peppermint tea to school. But we no longer have adrenal issues.
I prefer to drink the tea as opposed to taking the extract because Buhner says using whole herbs is often more beneficial; that the constituents that are removed during processing can actually act synergistically with the main compound. Plus there are so many different chemicals added to supplements, extraction agents, flow agents etc. that I try to stay away from them. I would give the tea a try to see how it goes. Experimentation is a wonderful thing!
Just make sure your teas are organic and not sourced in China. The good teas can be found in most healthfood stores as opposed to the supermarket.
