I cherish the memory of the good old days when my dad used to come over for a visit on Sundays with a box of delicious cookies from mom and a beautiful bunch of fresh flowers from their garden. What he wanted in exchange was a cup of coffee and our talk over it. We had such a great time together! And the coffee was delicious!
My mom did not drink coffee, but she got me acquainted with another warm friend: tea. My family is still laughing when they remember of how my uncle, who was just a teenager at the time, went home after a visit to my parents, and told his mom that his auntie was a great cook. “What did she cook?” she asked about her daughter-in-law. And the answer was: “The most delicious tea I have ever had!” She made her own mixture of several plants and black tea and the outcome was very savory.
Later on I discovered another delicious drink that would soothe my afternoons, accompany me on a journey to other times and places with a book in my lap, and share a great time with friends coming over for a chat. It’s name is green tea. At first I liked to drink it with a slice of lemon in it, but as time went by and we got acquainted better, I saw it went well in different combinations. Now I think I like it most with jasmine.
I still drink coffee from time to time, it is still an old friend, so I won’t say anything bad about it. But I only have a cup occasionally, because I saw drinking several cups every day, as I used to for some years, did not do good to my health. Green tea, on the other hand, has remained a good companion over years. Besides being a delicious drink, everybody knows that green tea is also very healthy.
And I cannot end my post without mentioning a potion I have discovered most recently, called GreenTeaPure. It is just as delicious as green tea and it also contains all of its benefits. The difference is that you can get in just a few drops the benefits that you would get from 12 cups of regular green tea. I usually mix my drops of green tea extract in a cup of cold water and enjoy my iced tea, but you can also mix it with hot water.
So, would you like a cup of coffee or tea? Black tea, green tea, jasmine or maybe Green Tea Pure?
