So recently I was able to get my hands on this really cool, stainless steel thermos… unfortunately, it also came with this box of green tea leaves. It didn’t smell too good, unlike the bags of supermarket teas I often find, so I was thinking of burning them until furnace filters can’t get a single speck out of it.
But being the curious person that I am, I tried it out. It doesn’t taste so bad, although I have to make sure to not steep it too long because it turned a bit bitter after a while. Not to mention there were bits of leaves left in the thermos after I drank.
Anyway, I found out that green tea is great source of anti-oxidants, and also could prevent some types of cancers, reducing negative effects of bad cholesterol, and in my case, after drinking the tea, reduced my intake (since I particularly hungry before drinking the tea).
I’d have to get used to drinking it, though. Specially since I can’t put sugar into it. I’m going to trade green tea from my usual early morning coffee from now on.
