After two days straight of nearly heaving my green tea back up and in the sink, I knew something needed to be done. “Green tea is healthy, but it shouldn’t be such a nightmare when it comes time to drink it,” I thought. Then I pictured in my mind what a real wizard might do in this situation. I saw said wizard adding an additional ingredient. Then it came to me.
Just add milk
I put the tea pouch in a cup and only filled half of it with hot water. Then I let it sit for 10 minutes while I did other things. I then took a milk jug and poured some 2% milk until the cup was almost full – leaving room for me to pick it up and not have the green tea spill over the sides, which would further add to the nightmare.
I paused, wishing mightily not to gag again. I sipped it. I then began guzzling. Swallow after swallow, it went down. I finished all of it and put my cup down. I waited. There was a small after taste – resembling a fraction of the blight I had before. The tea was in my system, ready to be added as nutrients to my body! Did it taste great? No. Did it taste GOOD enough? Yes!
UPDATE! It was brought to my attention that milk may alter the green tea’s effectiveness a small amount if used in large amounts, which Amazing Green Tea explains. So just put a little in and if you really want to be certain, use soya milk. Thanks for the wife for checking up on this. Good to know I’m human :)
UPDATE! Use chocolate milk for even more improved taste. Use soya milk. Use a little bit of honey. All these things will go a long way toward making your green tea taste good.
What do you do?
What do you do when you drink green tea? If you don’t drink it, please explain why. It provides tremendous nutritional value and adds energy to the body. I have over 20 packets of ‘generic’ flavored green tea that I don’t have to give away now. Would some of you just drink another flavor and solve it that way? Or add some ice cream?
