Should I commit to green tea, too?

Saturday, December 05, 2009

I just read another blog by a Spark member where she praised the benefits of green tea. The tip sounded so sound and healthy that I am going to make myself accountable here for replacing my coffee with green tea. I'm off to make some and start a healthier habit. Here's to our health!

9/25/10 My efforts at consuming more green tea did wane. I have experimented with some different varieties of tea--thank you spark members for the ideas. I enjoy ginger tea mixed with water as a refreshing beverage. I keep looking for new tea ideas so I will continue to update here.

    Hi, thank you for visiting my blog. I have tried green tea but didn't care for it. I'm a confirmed coffee drinker although I do like a cup of earl grey decaf tea when I get home from work. Anyway, good luck with the green tea.

    Green tea is good. I also like blending teas. (This will make you laugh, but I like roasted dandelion root tea mixed with black tea. It's awful in some ways, but very good in others. Nice for those times you'd like to stop retaining water, too.)

I happen to like tea unsweetened, but the mix above is one of the two I like "English Style" - that is, with a bit of milk and sugar sometimes. The other is Earl Grey. Not so, other teas.

I sometimes add powdered milk (not creamer!) to my tea to ensure a bit more calcium in my day. I know, I know - I grew up without electricity on a ranch way out in nowhere, so we actually used that stuff, and I grew to like and appreciate it. (Cheaper, too.)

    Oh! That just hurts when I hear of someone giving up coffee!

LOL

But, I love green tea too. AND they make Arizona tea in juice/Crystal Lite format...(did that make sense?)
