Green tea combines the best of both worlds: it’s good for you and it tastes great. But even the best tasting beverages can get a little boring.
Here are 4 ways to spice up your cup of green tea:
1. Anais-cardamom-cloves green tea
My mom’s friend’s wife treated us to this kind of green tea when we were on a short trip to New York last year. Brew a mug of green tea and add a star of Anais, a couple of cardamom pods and a couple of whole cloves. This drink will warm you up and lift your mood for sure!
2. Ginseng green tea
Looking for a boost of energy? Just add ginseng. It will give your tea a distinct flavor and will keep you focused and energized for hours.
3. Ginger-Lemon green tea
If you’ve been talking too much, lost your voice at a loud concert or caught a cold – this blend is for you! Brew a cup of green tea, then add a couple of slices of ginger and a slice of lemon. If you have a sweet tooth, add honey as well. You’ll feel your voice recovering right away.
4. Peppermint green tea – the classic
Are you into simple but strong flavors? Get hold of fresh peppermint leaves, squish them in between your fingertips to release the fresh scent and drop them in your mug of steaming green tea.
Pro tip – take this drink with you for a walk in a local park!
