For the month of March, I decided to challenge myself to drinking two cups of tea each day. To give you a little background, I do not drink coffee because I do nott think it tastes appetizing. I am a tea drinker, but most days I drink Twining’s Earl Grey (probably because of Captain Picard) and occasionally I drink other teas. Hence, the 100 count box of Earl Grey above. I am not a fan of most black teas (exception being Earl Grey), I love green tea, and other Herbal tea’s, so they are always in my stash.
Everyday, I have been drinking either Green tea, Superfruit tea, or Hibiscus tea sometime before my 3:30pm meal. I drink my second cup of tea either during or after dinner, this tea is my comfort tea, good for putting me in sleep mode, for which I usually drink Earl Grey or Chamomile tea. So far, this works for me and is an easy change. I find myself staying away from juice, and because tea is made with water, I am also getting another couple cups of water each day. Tea’s also have beneficial qualities for the body, so I think this choice is a winning choice.
When I feel my tea needs a sweetener, I use either Agave Nectar or Organic Raw Honey. I tend to skip both with Earl Grey, and give it a shot of lemon juice. Try it! Its delicious!
