Green Tea

The first thing I do when I get up in the morning is turn on my T-fal Vitisses electric teakettle from brother Lee. I start everyday with a cup of green tea. My favorite is jasmine green, but I also love Tazo Zen-green tea with lemongrass & spearmint. “Drink a cup (or two) of green tea everyday”.

We have been sipping tea for centuries and it is believed to be the most consumed beverage in the world, after water. Tea is also considered to be one of the world’s healthiest drinks and green tea has high levels of antioxidants. Catechin polyphenols and caffeine are the antioxidants in green tea that according to nutrition studies can support bone strength, metabolism and energy levels.

I will often have a second cup of tea in the afternoon, since the level of caffeine can give me a little boost of energy and it is another way for me to get in additional water for the day.
