KMA2938 Teas, Pt.1

What? Tea? Am I ripping off Sarca (Juan Valdez Follows her, you should too!) and her coffee posts?

Nope. I mentioned a while back about managing to shed about 25 pounds. I don’t say I ‘lost’ weight because that sounds like something that could be found again and I have no interest in finding it again. Anyway.

I’m fairly certain a significant part of this accomplishment was the ingestion of healthy quantities of green tea. I know lots of folks think it tastes like grass, and who’d wanna drink the lawn? But me, I love it. Just plain, straight up, nothing in it. No lemon, no ginger, no extra anything. Keep it coming.

So I started a survey of green teas, out of my own interest, and thought I’d share the results (thus far, hence the Pt.1 in the title) in case any of y’all were interested.

I used a scale from 0 (hairy grossness) to 10 (rainbow unicorn panacea). Here’s what I’ve got so far:

1 – Lipton Green Tea – basic, cheap, not terrible. RATING: 5

2 – Tim Hortons Green Tea – lemon furniture cleaning spray nose, OK flavour. Would probably make a fairly good iced tea. RATING: 6-1 for the nose = 5

3 – Twinnings Green Tea – smooth, simple, solid go-to. RATING: 7

4 – Tian Hu Shan Dragon Well Green Tea – Chinatown Taranna find. Basic, not offensive. RATING: 5

5 – Lipton Magnificent Matcha Green Tea – expensive, in comparison, but so far above and beyond the others it’s not even fair. RATING: 10

***

And that’s the first 5. When I get through a few more, I’ll report back. Enjoy a cuppa!

  1. My favourite, I think Lipton, was LEMON green tea!

    • Yup, lots of lemon kinds out there. I’d wager they put the lemon in there for the folks who don’t like the hardcore straight green tea like me, and fair play to it. If it gets folks drinking green tea (with all of its benefits), I’m all for it!

    • Great, hope I can be of service! Any future posts as well will all be green teas. I’m after the health benefits… No idea when Pt.2 will be. Some of these boxes have 50 bags in them, and I’m only one man! Hahaha

  5. I will check out some teas. CB was a card carrying pis-stank at one time now he’s a card carrying “Tea Granny”. The Who has a good tea song also. I now have the Kinks song in my head for the day. Not a bad thing. I think I’ll have a cup a tea right now. Good old Red Rose.
