There is an ancient Chinese Proverb that says "Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one."

I don't know why, but I seem to be addicted to green tea, the way a coffee lover needs his or her regular fix. I drink it almost every day... hmm...must be the caffeine in it. Better still it benefits our health as well (at least most articles I read said so).

I am also obsessed with anything that links with green tea. My perfume, handwash gel, dishwashing foam are all associated with green tea. You must think I'm insane, but I just love the fresh scent. Ah...

General Instructions on Brewing Green Tea:
  • Fill a kettle of water and bring to boil
  • Use one tea bag per cup
  • Once the water is boiled, pour it over the tea bag and allow to steep for 3 minutes
  • Remove the tea bag and allow it to cool for a minute or two

Not as complicated as preparing a cup of good coffee in my opinion. Hehe. And now, will you believe me I am enjoying my cup of green tea as I am writing this? ;P

    I've been drinking a lot of tea lately, too, but oddly, there's no green tea in my cupboard. There's white tea, and black tea (of course), and rooibos, and different kinds of herbal teas, but no green.

    Do you drink it plain, or add sugar, milk, lemon, honey... etc.?

    Lately, I add milk and sugar to all but the fruit teas.


  12. Well, I'm off to drink a cup of tea right now. :)


  13. Melody Says:

    Darla, green teas are usually drink plainly, for you will spoil the taste if you add anything into it. :)


  14. Melody, quite the green tea lover you are. A cup of goodness in the morning is really priceless, enough to brighten up the day. And yes, it really has a host of health benefits. It just makes you feel refreshed because of its anti-oxidants. It's even beneficial to our dental health!
