I know they say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, but for me, it’s organic tea! Do you drink teas? And do you prefer loose leaf or bagged?
I drink lots of organic tea! The problem is that I am still drinking coffee, too, but I’m slowly weaning myself off of it. I enjoy loose leaf tea. It is much tastier and not hard to make at all.
Same here Eartha. I keep trying to substitute tea for coffee but it is so difficult – especially in the morning. Maybe my new years resolution?
I also drink tea daily, definitely organic and definitely caffeine free! I prefer bagged because it is easier but I have been meaning to try loose leaf. Is there a difference in taste?
Where do y’all get your tea from? I’ve really been wanting to get into drinking green tea, but it looks like I’m going to have to get it online in order to get high quality organic tea. I’ve looked in different stores near me and I just can’t find what I want.
I love herbal teas. I rarely drink coffee, but I drink teas causally and medicinally. Herbal infusions are a great way to get the medicinal herbs we need.
I drink a lot of bottled green tea, but I’m starting to wonder if it isn’t high quality. I love the green tea I’m drinking now, but I think I’ll switch to organic. I’ll try the loose leaf since it’s tastier, as Eartha Green has commented. I’ve read drinking and soaking your nails in green tea make them stronger, also.
I can’t get past the grassy taste – even though I know it is good for me. I just stick with water.
I love tea, both to drink as a beverage and for medicinal purposes! I buy the Traditional Medicinals brand and always keep a few staples on hand: Breathe Easy, Gypsy Cold Care, and Throat Coat. My son has asthma and the tea seems to help him when he’s sick. Plus, he likes the taste of it.
I’ve researched green tea and the substances called polyphenolic catechins found in it are stronger than vitamin E in fighting free radicals. The Chinese show low incidences of cancer, who drink it instead of coffee.
I remember a few years ago the “rage” in my health food circles was organic Oolong tea for weight loss. I didn’t lose any weight, but I really enjoyed the Oolong tea.
I know it’s terribly indulgent but I have purchased the tea of the month option from The Tea Spot. I get the organic option and they send me a shipment every three months. Each shipment has three or four varieties and blends. It’s expensive but if you have a little to spare to indulge, I highly recommend it!
I love tea and start my morning with a cup or two. I have to admit that I only like a few herbal teas, mainly because many of them are very mild in flavor and I prefer a more full-bodied taste. I only use tea bags. I find loose tea is a lot more work.
I drink a lot of tea, but only the normal every day kind – I really wish I liked herbal or fruit teas but no matter what I try I just don’t like the taste. I’ve tried adding honey but it still just tastes wrong to me. There are so many boxes in my cupboard with just one teabag used! Did you find you had to work at developing a taste for this kind of thing, or was it something that you’ve always liked?
I don’t drink organic tea but I do drink ice tea everyday. Unsweetened is the only way to go. What makes a tea organic? I only drink bagged leaf tea.
