Tea of the Day … Gorgeous Geisha

I’m not a fan of green tea.I don’t mind decaf green tea with flavour in it (especially Tetley’s decaf green tea with pomegranate) but full strength green tea usually sends me buzzing and it’s got a bitter taste I just can’t warm too. My second tea trial was T2 Gorgeous Geisha, also a green tea but one with a difference.

Gorgeouse Geisha is a green tea with strawberry flavour added to it. This seems to take the edge of the bitterness and made it quite drinkable. This time round I road tested my new tea at breakfast (instead of mid-morning) so it was a nice kick start/cleanse to get me feeling healthy.

Green tea is said to have weight loss capabilities, well I don’t know about that, but I do know that it made me feel healthier and got me out for a run! Maybe its that placebo effect that helps you to loose the weight!

    Hi Nicky

    When i first started drinking green tea i had the same problem with it being bitter. There are 2 reasons green tea will be bitter.

    1 if you use boiling water and add it directly onto the tea bag or leaves it will burn the tea and cause a bitter taste. Try adding a little ice water in your cup first before pouring in the hot water or you can buy kettles that heat the water suitable for green tea.

    2 if you leave the tea bag or leaves in the water too long again it can turn bitter. I use T2 gorgeous geisha tea bags and only dunk them for about 10 seconds then I remove the bag.

    Hope this helps

      Hi Pamela, that helps a lot. I’m not used to drinking green tea, so I will try those hints. How do you come across my blog if you don’t mind me asking?
