Hello, my name is Jan and I live in Scotland.
I am a long time drinker of Earl Grey Tea, long before they began to report all the health benefits in the media. Now it is a very fashionable tea but I can remember not so long ago when it was very hard to buy. I began drinking it many years ago because it helped me to lose weight, I find the urge to snack is very much less.
Recently my husband and I have begun to drink green tea. We did this because of a long period of depression caused by troubles at my work and his attempts to find work which have not been successful. We found that the green tea lifted our mood and made us feeling hopeful again. We drink mainly clipper tea but wondered if other members have recommendations for green tea. It is so difficult to find a blend of young leaves (not so bitter) unless you have a local tea shop or supplier. I find that internet shops are not so good unless they carry a personal recommendation because of course you cannot sample the leaves as you can in a shop.
Hello again to all and thank you for reading!
