I’ve been paying more attention to my overall health lately and have been reading up on the benefits of green tea. Some scientists suggest that the antioxidants naturally found in green tea may reduce the risk of digestive cancer. It’s also reported to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes as it slows the rise of your blood sugar after eating. I wasn’t sure that green tea alone could do that, but I was willing to try it! Especially since I am a diabetic. The taste is definitely an acquired one, but there’s lots of different flavors to try and most supermarkets stock a wide variety, so you won’t need to go far to find them!

 

I know that green tea alone won’t miraculously make me super healthy, so I’ve combined it with walking 10,000 steps every day and overall, I’m feeling a lot better. I think it’s important to find what works for you and your health, and these two things were great for me. I understand that there’s all different kinds of green tea to choose from and I certainly didn’t know where to start, so I’ve put together a list of three of my favorites. They’re not too strong and two of them contain other flavors such as mint and pomegranate, so hopefully you’ll find something here that you like!

 

Numi Gunpowder Green. This is straight-up green tea with nothing else added, so no additives or artificial flavors and it’s also organic, and Fairtrade. One of the best things about Numi’s green tea is that it has a very delicate taste and won’t overpower your tastebuds, so it’s ideal for beginners to try.

 

Teavana Jade Citrus Mint Green Tea. The perfect green tea for people who like a fresh and energizing blend. Depending on the type, I’ve often found that citrus in green tea is too bitter, but this tea gets it right. I suggest you drink this one after a meal because mint is a natural stomach settler , and doesn’t contains sugar which can irritate your stomach. Boo sugar!!!

 

Yogi Tea Green Tea with Pomegranate. I’m a big fan of all Yogi Tea’s products but this is one of my favorites. If you’ve tried green tea before, but found it too strong, and would prefer something more fruity and herbal, try this – it’s much sweeter than standard green tea and is a great everyday choice, especially over the summer months.

 

The teas in this list are just some of my favorites but there’s hundreds of different types of green tea out there and if you’re like me, you’ll end up picking up a new flavor any time you’re in a supermarket. My cupboards are already full of tea but I always have space for more! I do feel that my overall health has improved and it’s really simple to swap out your usual soda for tea, so next time you’re out, pick up a box of green tea and try it for yourself!

Chobani Green Tea Blended Yogurt

Author: Healthnuttxo

If you’ve been following me for a while now, you know I LOVE Chobani. I have yet to find a flavor I haven’t really liked, and most flavors I thoroughly enjoy. I’ve seen this Green Tea Blended flavor on the shelves for a couple weeks now, so I decided to pick it up. I love green tea, and I love greek yogurt, so why not? It’s gotta be good!

Disclaimer: that is NOT a hair on the cup, that is a piece of plastic. Do not fret!

Oh boy, was I wrong on this one. This yogurt was nearly inedible for me. It started off promising, thick and creamy, typical Chobani fashion. Then I actually tasted it…awful. It tasted like plain yogurt, however it had this “cheesy” flavor to it. I had a couple extra bites to make sure, and only after my reluctant 3rd spoonful I finally tasted a very slight green tea flavor.

I was NOT. A. FAN.

It was terrible, I didn’t finish it, and had another yogurt for breakfast. I wish they did vanilla green tea, or something, because this flavor was hardly sweet or flavored, and it was almost like someone brewed green tea for a few seconds in very tart unflavored plain yogurt that had a cheesy flavor. This is officially the first Chobani yogurt I hate, and I will never buy again. 1 star
