Whenever I drink green tea is seems it makes me urinate moreso than water would. It's "naturally decaffinated" so it's not caffeine sending me to the bathroom. Is it just the warm drink effect?

Could be. Sometimes your bladder will respond to the temperature of your drink.

Drinker as in alchohol? No. Drinker of green tea? Well, no also. I just started having a cup or two a day the last couple of days.

I'm curious, what in it gives it the diurectic effect?

Yes, I meant the green tea.
I am generally fine after several cups, nothing unusual, but I am "used" to a lot of tea at times.

Green Tea has caffeine content of between 10-80 mg per cup depending on how it's prepared. Caffeine has been demonstrated to be a mild diuretic but most people become tolerant to its diuretic effects with continued use

He said it was "naturally decaffinated."

I also thought it was because of the caffeine so now I'm curious as to what ingredient could have the diuretic effect hmm.
