So three weeks ago I started drinking green smoothies and green tea for health reasons. I also cut out the daily soda pop. I am pleased to say that I now absolutely love both green smoothies and green tea! I already did enjoy a cup of tea – sweet tea with fruity flavors. I just was never a big fan of just plain black or green tea. I thought it was too bitter. But, after two days of drinking green tea in the morning (and sometimes iced in the afternoon) I quickly got used to it. I am now a fan. It is my go-to drink other than water. And yes, in three weeks time I have had two sodas and they just didn’t taste quite as good as they used to. I will be sticking with green tea and water.

Do you enjoy tea? What’s your favorite tea?
I am thankful that with my on-the-go lifestyle that I can take my green tea with me. I have a Laken Thermos and Travel Cup that I now love.
The Laken Insulated Stainless Steel Thermo Cup does an awesome job at keeping my green tea hot. So hot in fact, that when I thought I could drink it, I still burned the tip of my tongue. Be careful – this cup is quite insulated. The only thing that bothered me about this cup was that when the top was closed it still leaked. I would prefer if it was leak-proof.
The Laken Thermo Flask is a great size for an extra cup of green tea on-the-go. It also works great at keeping the contents hot (18 hours!). I like the screw on cap and wide mouth as well. With no BPA and grip coating on the outside, I really love the portable size and style of this flask.

I love green tea, and I try to remember to have a little bit every day. Sometimes, I use it as a liquid ingredient when I bake — every little bit of healthy is a plus!
