Book 4.5: Scrappily Ever After
By Mollie Cox Bryan
I've been reading all about green tea and I have to say I don't like the stuff. It's bitter and tastes sort of tike, I don't know, bitter GRASS or something. But I do wan the supposed health benefits you get from drinking one cup of green tea a day. I figure I can manage that, if it's flavored with something else—mango, raspberry, mango. You get the point. Anything to hide the flavor.
Despite my best efforts, I can not drink the stuff. But I have been able to down it in my oatmeal. I'm not sure if it's giving me energy or what. Perhaps I'm so depleted that it's going to take some time to kick in. In the mean time, I have found that I enjoy it more when it's cold and mixed with other stuff. In fact, I stopped at tea shop and they served it like that. it was half Macha, half almond milk, (or soy or cow, what ever floats your boat), honey and cardamon. I've been trying to replicate it at home, but no such luck. When I do, I'll pass the recipe on to you. In the mean time, I'll just keep sprinkling in my oatmeal and waiting for that energy to descend on me! How about you? Do you drink green tea?
