I used to drink green tea because I read it was healthy, and then decided I really do not like it.
So, NO I do not like green tea and no longer drink it.
I don't know what they serve at Asian places - I always thought it WAS green tea, but I like that, whatever it is??
But no, to green tea - dreadful!
It is ok, but i wouldnt run a mile for it. I prefer English Breakfast. I do have green tea as part of a detox diet sometimes, but it doesnt have a very nice taste, and to be honest, i would rather water, than green tea.
The only way I enjoy green tea, is when I add my own herbs or flavours to the leaves! I do not like green tea in tea bag form at all. The green tea which I have always enjoyed in restaurants, particularly Chinese ones, is always made fresh in a pot with LEAVES! This really is why it tastes so much better, in my own humble opinion. A tea which I truly enjoy is the Japanese Gen Macha which is a long green leaf tea which has roasted rice added to it.A friend who had a tea shop was selling out of all her leaf blends and she made a pot of this so I could try it prior to purchasing. Oh!! It is so delightful with a splash of milk and a touch of honey or raw sugar. T2 have a rather nice one of this, though I usually buy mine at the local Oriental Grocery store!
Green tea is meant to be consumed to settle one's meal. I always have green tea with my Chinese meals, black of course and no sugar. I sometimes drink it with breakfast but tend to have more coffee than tea.
Most greens tea are not nice and leave a bitter after taste in my mouth. I accidentally found one that is okay, Fujian China, was served to me at a local take away and it pleasant. Jasmine tea is served in Asian places and that is nice.Needs to be on the weaker side to be palatable.
I always thought I would drink hot drinks when I became and adult. I am nearly 40 and I still don't really enjoy tea or coffee. However, in this last year I have started drinking Green Tea to help with my metabolism and I am starting to warm up to it.
