  • I know it all but still can’t get used to it :'(

    • Haha! That’s a common story. Most people can’t stick to green tea for its bitter taste. Anyhow, after regularly forcing myself to drink 2-3 times a day, I don’t really find it repulsive anymore.

  • I am with Archana 😀 I too drink the normal masala tea!

    • One way to go around is that take masala tea like you do but only once e.g. in breakfast. Afterwards take green tea before lunch or dinner and in the evening. That’s how I’ve worked it out.

  • A great recipe indeed.

  • Useful and healthy no doubt but zero in taste. Great post.

    • Yeah, but green tea comes in few flavors too. After a while it doesn’t taste that bad.

    Green Tea is amazing, but I still can’t leave tea.
    A wonderful article 🙂

    • Addicted to tea? Well, just take tea at one time, and green tea a few other times.
