To begin my baby steps into living healthy again I will start drinking green tea. I’ve never been a tea drinker (the Brits love it + so did my mum) I prefer coffee or milk or chocolate drinks when I was younger, but now that I am older more health conscious, I’d like to start the habit of drinking tea instead of its tastier contemporaries.

Green tea instantly soothes the mind, gives an escape from the hectic hassles of everyday life + rejuvenates the body (says so on the packaging). Also, it can be prepared in two ways:

  • Aromatic Hot cup of green tea – place a tea bag in a cup, pour in freshly boiled water, let it steep for 2-3 minutes before removing the tea bag + add some sugar if desired
  • Refreshing Cool glass of Iced green tea – place 2 tea bags in a cup, pour in freshly boiled water + let it steep for 2-3 minutes before removing the tea bags. Mix in 3 tablespoons of sugar + slowly pour onto a tall glass filled with ice.

I have not tried drinking it iced cold since I normally drink it in the wee hours of the morning while I do my early morning online tasks. Maybe I can try that version one of these days.
