OK so apart from it being MEGA healthy and good for you, its also very tasty! I literally drink cups and cups of it daily from the minute I wake up until I go to bed. So I am not really that much of a fan of plain green tea (without adding sugar) but I would drink it over black tea any day. I am more about trying the different flavors and so far my ultimate favorite has to be the green tea with pineapple and grapefruit! My goodness me, it is AMAZING!!
I have tried Starbucks green tea and Costa coffee green tea and both are absolutely foul! I much prefer just carrying about 8 tea bags in my bag daily and asking for hot water if I go for a cuppa, then I know that I will enjoy what I am drinking. I am such a freak lol. I also bought a Starbucks flask for work so I can constantly drink green tea at my desk.
