>Researchers believe that the most likely explanation is that the caseins, proteins found in milk, form complexes with catechins in tea, its most important flavonoids.

In other words, adding milk to your tea makes it less healthy.

I like green tea, sometimes sweetened with honey but usually unsweetened. Occasionally I'll throw in some ginger or mix peppermint + ginger.

I should go brew some green + ginger right now, sweetened and let it cool so I can serve it iced with dinner.

He always has PG tips. I basically kept doing the same when I moved out. Twinings is nice but it can get a bit expensive. I'd much rather buy the cheap but good stuff and put my own stuff in.

If you have a Teavana near you I always buy my "splurge" tea from there. Basically for whenever I feel like pretending I'm posh.
>>
>>25678115
Not him but is that really tryhard?

I assume a tea enthusiast would buy fresh tea. I don't drink tea much but still buy it fresh/loose leaf. Seems like basic tea enjoyment.

I assume bagged tea is for poor people though.

It's not difficult to obtain or necessarily expensive, maybe you should make the switch anon. It's also extremely easy to make, about as easy as bagged tea. The only difference is washing out one or two extra things you need to make it.

>>25678375
I've had both tea from a bag and loose leaf, I would say loose leaf taste better because it hasn't been pulverized. There's less surface area and it doesn't seep as much. Doesn't taste as bitter and taste more like the plant itself that was used.

>>25678391
I guess, I pay about 25-50 cents per cup depending on where I buy the leaf. I usually drink coffee though, tea is more of a fun thing for me when I don't feel like drinking coffee in the middle of the night.
>>
>drinking tea dust
I've been drinking 2 pots of whole leaf green tea for the past year. No sugar or anything.

When I can find it for a good price, I'll buy a few ounces of cream earl grey. A spoonful of sugar goes well with it.

I drink 2 cups of green tea daily, which is too much anyway. I can buy the leaves cheap in small amounts from the supermarket and they would last for a month or two.

Sweet tea isn't good, I'm even American. It just taste like soda that isn't carbonated, especially that shit you can buy in the can. Arizona Sweet Tea, Lipton, etc.

It's okay if you like teabags, but don't go saying there's no difference.

I make bagged or loose leaf tea, water below boiling, well steeped. I make a very large mug. Then I squeeze an entire lime into it. I don't know anybody else who does this (no sugar, no honey). I make hot toddies occasionally and got it from that. I'm addicted to it now.

Herbal tea and real tea don't necessarily have anything in common. You could steep lawn clippings from Pripyat in hot water and call that "herbal tea" but I don't think it would be good for you. Tea being good for you is up for debate but it definitely isn't bad for you and It shouldn't have any calories.

You probably should have spiced up that ramen, looks tasteless. Next time you should boil an egg with it, also cut hotdogs into little octopus. Buy bean sprouts at the grocery store and throw those in. Also, it taste great with some soy sauce and sesame oil with the seasoning.

Sometimes I add other veggies too. Here's some shitty ramen I ate recently.
