New Green Teas We Are Trying

WE have a cup of green tea daily, as it has great antioxidant and mood improving qualities, and has been recommended for my husband's Parkinson's Disease for brain function too. So, we have been trying to find one he likes.

The first is from Arbor Teas, a smaller tea company. The name of the tea is Decaf Tropical Green, in a loose leaf tea, and is has lots of botanical stuff in it and actually smells quite strongly of tropical flowers....

But, therein lay the problem...too flowery for mu Honey. We finished the bag, but he didn't want to get it again.

The current choice is much better for him. We drink PG Tips for an easy go-to black tea...my Honey drinks their decaf...one of the only ones he says actually still taste like tea...so we were pleased to find they started several naturally flavored green teas in the last year or so. The lemon version was sold out on the British tea website we use, so we got the Raspberry, which he says is quite nice. I am sticking with my Harney & Sons Green Tea With Coconut, because I don't like raspberry in any form, but he is quite happy with it. He is looking forward to the lemon version, though.

This tea is in biodegradable silky sachets, and please note that the PG Tips mascot, Sock Monkey is on the teabag tags! My hero! Hope you are enjoying your week...I'm off for a cuppa...my green tea this time...


  1. Interesting reviews, thank you. Love the PG Tips sock monkey (and the mug). I'm actually drinking green tea myself right now - Bigelow jasmine green tea. It's not bad!

  2. Great post, thank you so much for sharing. You have a lovely blog.

  3. I had no idea that green tea provided those benefits! I've always liked black tea, especially good old Lipton's, which I was pretty much raised on (should I be ashamed to say this?). But, I have been known to try others, too. I've heard the PG Tips is really good, so I'll have to find a source for that. You are very lucky: you live in one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.


Thanks for visiting and we love to hear from you! We read every comment. If my husband's health permits, I love to visit andreply. Have a wonderful day and a cuppa tea always at hand! :)
