Too Many Teas

My tea obsession maybe getting out of hand I would say. From my stand point just a bit but I think my boyfriend would say otherwise. I guess when you see boxes and boxes of tea overflowing in the cupboard it can become too much to handle. What can I say I am becoming more obsessed with tea. I have a different flavor every morning before work and when I get home I have my favorite flavor. I love peppermint tea I just love it.

I also have acquired a taste for green tea. With all the benefits of green tea who would not want try to acquire a taste. Green tea can be very bitter when you first try it. With the weather being so hot I do prefer to drink my teas cold. While I am not a fan of cold and bitter green tea I will mix it with another tea. That way I can enjoy the benefits and the flavor. The flavor I have been drinking with green tea may come second to peppermint. I also have been drinking a powder green tea that I will blog about later I want to give it a week to see if I notice any difference.

Funny tea story: Now that I am able to drink tea without any sweetener I sometimes enjoy green tea alone especially when it’s cold. We have a pretty nice tea selection at my job. One of my co-workers who had never tried green tea decided she would love to try some with me to see if she enjoys it. While I was sipping mine and doing my work I notice her and another co-worker looking at me with sour faces. It was funny because they looked like sour grapes that could not understand why I would drink something so foreign to them. Apparently the tea was to bitter for their taste buds.


I add another green tea bag to this tea and it does not change the flavor..


Fusion Water

Hello Everyone! I hope you guys love water as much as I am trying to love it! Well as you may know water is something that you have to acquire a taste for, and well I am getting there. I am just having trouble going all the way 🙂 ; lately I have been flavoring my water with tea. I call it fusion water. It tastes way better then plain water. I sometimes add a little honey about one tablespoon for 3 liters that I drink for the day. I seem to love teas. I was at the mall and stopped buy a neat little tea store name Teavana. Has anyone ever heard of it? They had some nice samples I tried all the sugar free ones of course and I found two I loved. Raspberry Riot Lemon Mate and Apple Lemon Pomegranate. I am in love with the raspberry riot it tastes just like raspberry lemonade with a twist. The apple lemon not so much too much spice for me. I guess it’s a fall flavor; I will save it for fall and maybe I will love it. I can say this is a new way to make water a little more satisfying on the taste buds.

Altenative to Water

I have never been a big soda drinker as a matter of fact the last time I had a pop was about six months ago. I do love fruit punch as well as juices from concentrate. I love ocean sprays cranberry blend it’s my favorite :). Lately I have been learning that they have a lot of empty calories, and I just want to save as many calories as I can for other foods are a treat on the weekend. Like the carrot, zucchini breakfast cookies I made for the week. They have butter but no eggs. I decided that if I was going to have butter in my cookies, I sure didn’t need eggs so I used cornstarch. With only ten calories per table-spoon you can’t beat that :).

I have been drinking a lot of water lately and I love water, but sometimes I just want something else to drink without all the calories and still has flavor. I have found that teas have been the solution to my problem and I give it thumbs up. I make my tea at night and it’s nice and cold all day long, and the plus is it is zero calories yay go tea!!! I call it my zero calorie flavor water with no added sweetener :). The only favors I have tried so far are mint and orange spice… I am looking for more flavors so I can have a nice variety. I have been giving it a lot of thought and I have decided to ride my bicycle to work its only four miles there and back. If there is any way I can burn more calories I am up for the challenge :). The heat is what scares me it’s been about 112 degrees lately and I have been sweating like crazy. What I know about the temperatures they rise later in the day, and I am home by then so I think eight miles will be perfect :)!
