Let's have a tea/general beverages thread. We all know what to eat, but what do you drink to break the monotony of water?
I also wanted to ask some advice. Right now, I drink really strong tea with assloads of caffeine, which can't be good for me. How do you guys brew your tea? I've gotten so used to drinking super strong tea that I don't know what normal tea is like anymore.
I drink mostly black tea (darjeelings and yunnans). I buy them from a small importer. I don't know what their caffeine content is or anything, and frankly I don't care. Tasty af and I love waking up with a strong black (no interracial homo).
I also don't add anything to my tea and feel contempt for anyone who does.
Yep, that's exactly my point. I've been off soda for about two years and I feel great. I was working night shift a couple weeks ago and decided I'd drink a Coke for a quick sugar + caffeine pick me up. It tastes so disgusting now bro. I don't know how ever I drank soda on a regular basis.
Are essential oils actually any good for you or is it just a meme? Seems like everyone's gf is selling that shit these days.
>just buy the starter kit for $50 and you can get rich quick, anon. Tee hee~
>How do you guys brew your tea?
Depends on the type of tea/tisane. I like this black tea called lapsang souchong. It's very smoky and tastes like bacon. Steep it in hot water for 3-6 minutes, or you could make it into a concentrate then dilute small pours of it with hot water throughout the day.
>The results from this study showed that testosterone glucuronidation was inhibited by the green and white tea extracts, along with specific catechin compounds, notably: epicatechin, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and catechin gallate.
Remember to have your daily cup of delicious, gains killing, liquid cancer.
>inhibits glucuronidation, , thus aiding performance, as well as potentially affecting the urinary T/E ratio and therefore masking testosterone abuse.
you even read that?
Black, green, oolong, herbal tea, you name it but the best drink imo is cocoa. I usualy put two teaspoons of cocoa powder in a mug then pour 100ml of 35% fat cream and fill up the mug with hot water.
An energy drink gives me 500% of daily recommendation of b12. Is this why it feels so great, or is it something else in the drink that does this. Caffeine alone doesn't give me the same high.
>that sounds disgusting
Probably because rice often has a bunch of powder nutrients, which gives it that taste and texture. Without those, it would probably be great. Rice, especially with a little milk and butter and honey (breakfast rice), is tight.
>Not a whole oz. of cocoa
Energy drinks have a bunch of stuff.. especially taurine, caffeine, and potentially sugar. There are B complex liquid droppers at Walgreens, but as for that same feeling, my guess would be not.
I usually just mix unsweetened black tea in those large jugs from the grocery store with milk. Sometimes add cloves and cardamom like Yemeni Shai Haleeb, but I don't add sugar.
Might not be the place, but I'll throw it out here. I started drinking green tea for the health properties it gives, but I can't stand to drink it hot/warm. Does it lose any benefits if I refrigerate it first? I can only stand to drink it cold.
Lady Grey, Rooibos, green tea with various fruit infusions, celestial seasoning sleepy time, Twining's mango and strawberry/raspberry and echinea. I fucking love tea brehs. So good. No sugar, either.
tbqh Everything you named seems kind of shitty. If you want non-shit tea you actually have to go for the less popular brands. I for one drink Tsar Tea from Russia, and it's amazing.
enjoy your inhibited nutrient absorption and fragmented sleep
I drink A LOT of Vanilla Coke Zero, I work at a building with a coke freestyle machine, its my weakness.
I think making home made chocolate from nothing but cocoa powder would be a better idea
