"Tea Time Tidbits" Special Posting #3

Unfortunately I really don't care for green tea. I know it is good for you--very good for you. I used to drink more of it, but I made the mistake while pregnant with my first child of drinking a cup of it that was a little too strong. That was it! I haven't been able to choke down a cup since...except for THIS green tea. It is sort of an un-green tea, I suppose, and very good for you. It has green tea (which, by the way, has a very mild, almost-can't-taste-it taste) and red antioxidants in it (i.e. Rooibos, hibiscus extract, vitamin C). It has a strawberry-orange taste to it which I sweeten with honey (sugar doesn't go!). It's a good, relaxing tea in the evening and/or if I'm feeling poorly. This box I found at Wal-mart, so it is easily found. This cup of tea I put into one of my tea mugs. I'll go on about tea mugs in another post, but this strawberry one is cheery and provides a nice visual accompaniment to the tea.

I love teas. Not so much Green Tea...ick... makes my tummy ache.

I just might have to try this one and see what happens.

Hello Michele; I am not a big fan of Green Tea either, but I just might have to try this one. It sounds pretty good. I love your tea cup too. Have a great week.

Hi Michelle,

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love green tea, and I'm the opposite, I crave for strong green tea. Hmm could it be due to the brand? I also love green tea ice creams. In fact, I love all my teas strong!

Have a great week!
