Of course honey is a more healthier alternative than brown sugar. I've heard rumours saying that local honey has numerous benefits for one's health. I've also read an article related to that.
However, I personally don't add honey to my tea simple because honey increases the calories intake. So basically if I'll take a teaspoon of honey for every cup of tea I'll end up gaining (64x8 big tea cups =>) 512 calories (only from drinking tea :faint)...That's 1/3 of my daily calories intake :gwah)........
As for drinking tea...I'm not hooked on any particular flavour; I just mix and match :3c. However, the only flavour that I truly miss after a while is the ginkgo, liquorice and lemongrass blend.
My modest tea colection includes:
- ginkgo, liquorice and lemongrass blend
- apple and cinnamon melange
- strawberry and raspberry blend
- white tea
- hibiscus, senna, dog rose, elder flowers and lemon blend
- St. John's wort
- Valerian, Camille and lavender melange
- Linden flowers
- Mint and cinnamon
As you notice, I'm normally drinking green tea, blended or herbal... As for black tea and rooibos.... they are missing from the menu (the taste is just too weird, strong and bitter).
Want to try Gyokuro Jade Dew. I've heard is the best Japanese green tea :3c..I also fancy trying oolong and yellow tea. What will you guys recommend?
On a completely different note ~ tea thread is back on business :confetti...I thought that the precious was lost; but Beary intervened and restored it!
THANK YOU, BEARY CHWAN :crying
just for the record - those are tears of joy
