Going green..!

September 15, 2009

For the health conscious person in me I have switched to the ‘Green tea’.

I love my coffee and everyone knows that and tea has always been a second preference.. not that I didn’t like tea. But it was always second to coffee.

But now I am loving tea more than my first love. (I mean coffee 🙂 )

Recently I had shifted to black tea as I didn’t like the taste of milk in tea. And i found  Black tea to be really great.

When I was in India I loved the tea with milk that mom made. Also the ones we drank at the railway stations.. not the ones in the train as they were more water and no milk.. not much taste. But strong ginger tea definitely interested me.

But here I had started avoiding tea totally. Maybe it’s the milk I don’t like here. So I decided to try the black tea as I couldn’t drink coffee all the time. And I loved the black tea. It has the strong taste and feel. And so I became a regular of that.

But now I am a step ahead and getting addicted to the wonderful heavenly green tea.

Last week I accidentally stumbled upon a box of green tea in my office. (Read in my super boss’s drawer, he is out of town and me and my boss are using this opportunity to the fullest 😉 by the time Superboss returns there might not be any left for him.)

So.. It is not just the great benefits it will have on my health that has pulled me to it.  But I dig the aroma and the taste.  The colour pleasing to the eye and the strong smell of ginger and lemon in my cup.. is aaaaaaahhhhhh….!!!!!

Even breathing it in refreshes my mind and soul.

I was wondering if green tea was better than black tea  and should I buy a box for myself, so I went looking for details. Turns out both are great for health. Not that I didn’t know before but never looked into it deeply.

Now I will make a habit of drinking both alternately as I love both.

Right now I am having a wonderful cup of hot and piping green tea.. and just looking out of the window…thinking nothing….. Life is bliss.

Nope have to hurry back to work…

    Whats with all this green tea busines… now I have to try it once then I can think of it..

    sure do try it..

    I hate milk flavour too… but black tea doesnt appeal either… !!!

    i don’t like plain milk at all.. so it is either coffee or tea.. black tea is good but yes it can taste bitter at times..

    now lets try some green tea… give me some Indian brands…

    Lipton is a good brand.. not sure if it is indian.. but you’ll surely find it in the market..

    You had the flavoured green tea ! that should be good, I hadnt tried it yet. The plain green tea isnt tasty at all !! But too good for health !!! I had these long ago; I stopped drinking tea and coffee since 2005 !!!

    Ah.. the guy without the vices (i mean just the tea and coffee here.. coz rest of them i am not sure.. 😉 )

    yes maybe it was the flavoured one… and so it has this great aroma and taste.. and good for health.. what more can u want…

      lol…no, i dont drink alcohol (even wine) and I dont smoke too !!! Plus, I dot even have gums, for me that is also an addiction 😀 😀 😀

      OMG.. i agree with OG.. why r u living man….? not even gum…???

      for blogging i believe… 😉

      Try the plain green tea and let me know if you like it 😉

      sure… 😛 😛

        • September 16, 2009 7:21 am

          LOL, Im having other vices 😀 😀 😀 For example, Im short tempered ! or Im a spendthrift ! 😀 😀

          hmm.. now i know why you found the guy’s charecter in the last post interesting… i can see some similarities here… 😉

          but.. a guy with no vices and also a spendthrift .. great catch you are.. you fiance’ is a lucky girl.. 🙂 😀

    a post dedicated to tea?? interesting 🙂

    didn’t have anything else to write about.. 😉

    my dad is addicted to black tea. and yes green is better for health.
    but i usually avoid tea altogether…. i m a complete coffee person. rarely i have the traditional tea, milk, n sugar. and of course i love the railway chai… thats a class apart! 😀

    railway chai.. 🙂 that is special….. though it tastes quite milky.. but with cardamom.. it is great..

    hmm maybe someday i’ll switch to the healthier version. until then, yeh sab chalega 😉

    chala lenge.. 😉

    I like tea very much (with milk), I don’t drink coffee unless nothing else is there or if I am in CCD. I go to a certain hotel just because the tea there is great! I have tried black tea, not tried green tea though, not sure what is tasty about them, maybe time to give it another try??

    Destination Infinity

    tea is great.. and noone can deny that… but the way you like it is totally upon you.. but coffee is good too.. maybe you should try some good coffee out of CCD.. 🙂

    I LOVE tea with milk..good old fashioned chai just the way I like it 😀
    never was able to take to black tea or coffee..though willing to experiment with green tea after reading so much about it here 😀

    ya good old fashioned chai with biskut.. and surrounded by family.. that is life.. 😀

    as for the green tea try the flavoured version it is good.. as i have read some comments by now that warn you against the plain real green tea.. 😉

    all said and done though moi loves kullad chai 😀 😀

    kullad chai.. wow again reminds me of trains and Mathura station.. haina..?

    oh! u took to green tea so easily!!! here my friends are trying to adjust to the taste coz of its health and “slimming” benefits and they are really trying hard!!! its an aquired taste!

    hmm.. good i am not doing i under any slimming compulsion.. just for the taste..

    i guess the flavoured ones are easier on the tongue that the plain-jane green tea…

    yes.. yes.. far better .. i have learned now..

    plus, in India everyone is used to strong tea, bolied tea-leaves, and u simply cannot treat the green tea like that! 😛 gotta steep it right?

    ye have to keep it light.. and right.

    good use of opportunity! but next time ur super boss is gonna lock his cabin! :mrgreen:

    we have other ways to obtain… 😉

    yenjai ur green tea oorja!!!

    me no drinks tea or coffee!! never liked either!!! 😀 nimboo paani for crafty!!!!!!!!!

    now that is my healthy girl…! 😀

    Do you really like green tea? I think it is an acquired taste.. difficult to accept for people who love Masala chai 🙂

    yes the flavoured one is really great..

    but i love masala chai too…. 🙂

    Green tea, is supposed to be very good, isn’t it? I have never tried it – for some reason.. I am right now in a coffee phase – I keep oscillating between coffee and tea 🙂

    me no oscillating.. i love coffee.. but i tried this new one (new for me).. and i am loving it.. 🙂

    it is really very beneficial healthwise..
