Ah summer! There are not many days of you left. Autumn is creeping in, the leaves on the trees are turning golden. The blackberries have dried on the vine from the summer sun and pumpkin spice season is almost here! With fall comes tea season, and dare I say, cold and flu season? What better way to embrace both than with a cup of herbal tea. Or should it be green tea?
The clouds rolled in and there is a bit of summer drizzle. I'm wearing my first sweater of the season and that means that tea season is right around the corner! But the question looms like the clouds ... green tea or herbal tea, which is better?
Did you ever have a cup of green tea and think, "WOW! That's bitter!"
That was totally me! Why would anyone drink this horribly bitter tea. Sure it's good for you, it's helpful in weight loss. Green tea is high in antioxidants and a wealth of other good for you things. But it was soooo bitter!
Turns out that green tea isn't so bad if it is steeped the right way! A little attention to the steeping time and temperature will go a long way in making the perfect cuppa green tea.
