My Green Tea Addiction

It's true.  I'm totally addicted to green tea.  I'm not even sure when it began, but it's progressively getting worse.  I guess there are worse things, right?  Don't get me wrong, I still have my cup of coffee every morning. After that, it's only green tea or water.  Sometimes I will drink up to 8 cups a day, especially if it's cold.  I used to get dehydrated during the day until I started drinking green tea.  Not anymore! 


Check out what WebMD has to say about green tea.  Studies have even suggested that the high level of antioxidants in green tea can prevent cancer.


I really became a fan a few years ago when I bought this amazing Tea Rhapsody Tumbler from Teavana.  I wish I would have asked Teavana to give me one to review here, but I love it so much I don't mind the free review.  The amazing thing about the tumbler is that it allows the tea leaf to expand and all the flavors completely come alive.  Seriously.  I generally sweeten it just a tad with German rock sugar...it's not too sweet.  My favorite tea, Pi Lo Chun, they stopped selling.  So now I need to find a new supplier - told you I had it bad.

I do drink other teas.  White, Black, Oolong, Herbal, and Rooibos.  They are all great, but I always return to green tea.  Although I prefer loose leaf tea, I use tea bags as well.  Any brand.  I will try any of them.  I had a coupon last week for a Bigelow box of tea, so I decided to check out the pomegranate green tea. 
It's actually pretty tasty for a bagged tea.  Of course, this lasted me all of 3 days.  Time to look for bulk.  And if you have samples available, don't turn your head because I will probably take all of them. Not that I have ever done that.  At least not that I would admit to.  I'm sure there's a 12-step program somewhere...

What's your healthy vice you just can't go without?  Leave me a comment, I'd love to hear about it!  And if you are a tea company, I'm totally available if you have samples.  Lots of them.
