Hello lovelies! I received a beaut box of Tetley tea goodies last week and it couldn’t have come at a better time – it’s been a hectic few weeks with midweek flights to other cities, early mornings and late nights and i came home on Friday night with a scratchy throat and miserable sick children! Let’s just say the weekend was long and it wasn’t just Charley and Ava who were whiny and snivelling! Now, when it comes to tea, i am not a big drinker. I only started drinking a few cups here and there a few years ago but lately i’ve noticed more and more of my friends are talking about green tea.
HEALTHY & NEW
Tetley Green Tea Mint is great for settling tummies and add a dash of honey to the Lemon flavour and you’ve got a wonderful morning wake-me-up drink – i was sent the Apple variant to try which i was thrilled about – because it reminded me of the teas in Turkey and i’m headed there in 2 months time. These flavoured green teas are the ideal way to up my water levels but here’s the bonus – it’s good for you!
In Asia, Green Tea has long been loved as a cure for all ills – and no wonder, it’s crammed full of antioxidants, is said to aid with fat loss and lower cancer risk – i’ll drink to those advantages especially the fat loss prior to my boat holiday! The experts are saying that you need 3 to 5 cups a day to reap the rewards – so time to get that kettle going, people!
Tetley Tea is the newest tea in the Tetley family – they’re the tea with the biggest teabags in the South African tea biz! They launched their new Green Tea variants last week – Mint, Lemon and Apple – perfect for people wanting to get their anti oxidants in while enjoying a refreshing green tea too!
TEA TIME RE-IMAGINED
Something you may have seen on menus and on shelves over the past couple of years is how Green Tea has become a really popular ingredient – you’ll find it in the likes of chocolate, ice cream and i’m sure you can imagine just how delicious the Apple or Mint are when chilled and served with fruit! Mixed with herbs, green tea leaves makes a really delicious rub for fish and it tastes amazing when included in savoury rice dishes too. Here’s a recipe i love the look of…
Vodka-laced Green Tea Cocktails
In a tall glass, drop in a Tetley Pure Green teabag, pour in hot water and let it steep for 5 minutes. Remove the teabag, stir in a teaspoon of honey, a shot of vodka, slices of lemon and sprigs of mint. Full your glass up with ice and enjoy!
