Green Tea

I am starting to drink green tea once a day now. I have started this many times, before but this time, I am taking it very seriously. There are many great benefits to drinking tea. Although it is best to have green tea plain (no milk, or sugar added), to truly reap in the benefits. Some of the benefits include a decrease risk of having strokes, and various cancers because of all of the antioxidants in the tea. It can help improve brain function, and even help slow down the brain from aging.

Although a word of caution, green tea does have a lot of caffeine, so if consuming caffeine keeps you from falling asleep, be sure to have it in the morning, or early afternoon. I normally have a cup of green tea when I wake up and after my yoga.

I have started noticing that my brain is more focused on reading, and blogging. I have only started drinking green tea not too long ago.

Movie Night Latte

It’s another Tea Tuesday! And today’s tea is Movie Night, I enjoy having it as a latte.

It’s a green tea that has apple pieces and real popcorn pieces added, too. It tastes a lot better than it sounds. I enjoy drinking green teas because of how beneficial green tea is for you. I read that it increases your memory, helps prevents the risks of strokes and various of cancers, too.

The mug I chose today was a Valentine’s gift from my boyfriend. He bought for me because I love puns (play on words) and because I’m romantic.

Iced Blueberry Matcha Latte

Matcha is amazing! It is finely powdered green leaves, so it comes as a powder.

When the water is boiling, you need to portion it in your matcha bowl.
Next, place ice cubes in your mug of choice.
Then add boiling water and whisk it, insuring that the powder has dissolved.

Froth the milk

Top it off with your frothed milk

French Toast

My boyfriend made us French toast and peanut butter cookies for breakfast.

We topped our toast with raspberries, sugar and cinnamon. I also drizzled a bit of syrup.

He also made us a cup of green tea. It was a joyous breakfast. 🙂 ❤

Green Tea with Lemon

I went over to my boyfriend’s house and we usually always have tea. I only use this one mug because it’s yellow and it’s tres chic. It was in the sink so I was thinking; “What a buzzkill….”

But before my boyfriend departed for work he boiled the kettle for his coffee and he even washed my mug for me. How sweet. I tried a different type of tea – Green Tea With Lemon. It was delicious.

During lunch I was telling his mama, sister and her boyfriend about that and his sister’s boyfriend asked; “You know he hardly washes his dishes? So you must be special!” I replied with; “Yeah, I am.” 🙂 ❤

Green Tea Earl Grey

I brought my Green Tea and Earl Grey tea with me to my friend’s house. I asked him if he wanted to make this for us and he agreed. He then asked me if I wanted milk and sugar in it so I said sure. Although I forgot to tell him that I don’t add a lot of milk and sugar to it.

After the tea brewed I took a sip of it and I thought it was quite scrumptious! He even served it in a yellow mug which happens to be my favourite colour. 🙂

The reason why I bought that tea was because it’s a blend of our favourite teas. I’m the one who loves Earl Grey by the way. It was the best of both worlds.
