Since yesterday was the first day of my favorite season, I anticipate that I will be upping my intake of the savory drink, tea, green tea specifically!
I first started drinking green tea when I would have sushi, and I couldn’t get enough of it. When my husband and I received our wonderful Keurig machine as a wedding present, green tea was at the top of my list! HERE is the link to the Keurig machine and Keurig cups.
(**Note: Some of you might have seen that earlier this week my Keurig machine died. I will hopefully be getting a new one tomorrow).
If you do not have a Keurig cup, that is okay. As long as you have green tea bags, you can still have and enjoy the drink.
There is no other kind of tea that is better than Green Tea! While some might think that this Chinese tea is bland, I disagree. When served hot this soothing tea it has a woodsy flavor and a hint of tang, but when served cold its natural flavors mixed with a lemon exude a refreshing summery taste.
As a writer I think it’s important to have a warming or refreshing drink, green tea is my choice. On a good day (meaning without having writer’s block), I can drink up to seven or eight cups. I also must tell you something that every writer needs if drinking a hot drink, a Mr. Coffee mug warmer. This can help keep your tea nice and warm while you write. I also bought another one and placed a glass candle (Yankee Candles, for an example) on top of it and let it melt, for a nice aroma while you write.
Below is a recipe for creating my perfect cup of tea.
One note about drinking green tea is that it’s good for you. Without going into too many details, green tea can help fight cancer and heart disease. It can assist in lowering cholesterol, burning fat, preventing diabetes and strokes and can also help wart off dementia, says the following link. (Please see THIS site if you would like more information on the benefits of green tea).
Now that this blog has been written, I’m off to make yet another cup of green tea! You should too! Happy Sipping!
