This is how we do it: Always use fresh water. Boil and leave to cool for a mite before pouring over the tea bag. Allow to infuse for 1-3 minutes. The rest is up to you."
Clipper promote their products as "natural, fair & delicious"
I have for a long time being buying various Green Tea with ... products and since I won a box of the Clipper range of teas I occasionally chose the Strawberry version. I have been drinking Clipper Green Tea and the "with" range for a good few years now, both for health reasons and because I drink it without milk, so can use it places where there is a kettle/flask, but no fridge. I aim to have at least 2 cups of beverage other than black tea a day and one of them is usually a Green Tea variety. Clipper Green Tea with Strawberry has a mild subtle flavour, the strawberry is very noticeable, but blended well it complements the green tea well. If you describe this like a wine, it would be a medium dry fruity rose, with a hint of fresh green fields and a definite strawberry flavour and aroma. If you prefer a sweeter drink, it is worth adding a little honey.
Not all Green Teas are the same. Flavours do differ from brand to brand and from product to product within the range. So like lager it is well worth trying different brands to find the right one for you.
How I make it:
I boil some water in the kettle and only once the kettle has boiled I get out a nice mug and the tea bag, pop the tea bag into the mug and pour over the boiled water. I leave to cool a few minutes and drink, leaving the tea bag in to benefit from every drop of goodness.
Green Tea contains Antioxidants that many experts believe slow down aging and prevent heart disease, strokes and cancers.
Green tea is an excellent source of antioxidants including "Catechins" which are powerful antioxidants found in large quantities in green tea and also help burn fat.
Fat burning properties in Green Tea helps improve the metabolism for weight loss and energy levels.
The effects are cumulative the more and longer you drink Green Tea, the more evident the weight loss effect.
Increasingly studies suggest that Green Tea increases exercise endurance.
All Tea contains a special compound called THEANINE, which has been known to stimulate alpha brain waves, calm the body, and promote relaxed awareness.
Well if the above advantages don't persuade you, antioxidants fight free radicals, that are a cause of cancer, high blood pressure and more. Strawberry boosts the immune system and can help prevent influenza and improve liver function. So, to fight or avoid any such problems, worth trying a cup a day, flavoured with Strawberry this Green Tea, offers an interesting flavoursome alternative to plain Green Tea.
Great as part of a weight loss diet, as Green Tea helps with weight loss and the Strawberry adds an interesting flavour, especially if you have a sweet tooth as the natural sweetness is evident.
