My thumb rule is to make things simple, so you can enjoy the things and can take health benefits out of it.
Green Tea doesn't appease my taste buds, but I usually try to take it often for health benefits. I have observed that whenever I have cold , then a cup of Green Tea soothes me. It helps me in feeling better.
I had never heard about Green Tea Leaves which you can eat. Recently I got some complimentary sample packs of Edible Green Tea Leaves for review purpose. Eat Green Tea company makes this edible green tea.
As per company description -
There is 100 times more EGCG (a powerful antioxidant) in EatGreenTea leaves than there is in brewed green tea. So don’t throw away the powerful nutrients in green tea – EAT THE WHOLE LEAF!
Whole idea is to eat these leaves. You can add these leaves to any food item which you like.It can be soup, smoothies or veggies. These leaves look like normal dried herbs. If you have ever used dried mint or cilantro or any other herb, then you can get an idea about these tea leaves.
If you find it difficult to eat whole leaves, you can easily grind these and then add that powder to your normal tea or smoothies. I found these similar in taste as Green Tea. Initially I didn't like its taste. But now I can easily eat these edible leaves.
I also experimented these leaves on Cake Slices.(You can try these on junk food as well ;) )
I can not measure the health benefits or how much actual antioxidants these leaves provided. But I can say one thing for sure, it is really easy to consume green tea leaves in this fashion. I liked the concept of Eat Green Tea. 100 grams (about a 1 month supply) of these leaves costs $25. It is bit expensive for me, but if I consider its benefits then I can ignore its cost.
If you are interested in trying Eat Green Tea, you can buy at Amazon.
