Staying Hydrated In Winter With Green Tea

Wednesday, January 03, 2018

Staying hydrated is one of those things I'm always really conscious I should be doing but, in reality, definitely don't keep up with. In the summer months, I can down litres of water like there's no tomorrow, but as soon as the temperatures start dropping, I can't seem to manage anywhere near enough water. Luckily, I'm something of a tea addict so green teas are a saviour when it comes to staying hydrated in the cold weather. Usually, I like my tea strong, with almond milk and very sweet which, unfortunately, means that my usual cuppa isn't the healthiest way to stay hydrated. So, in a bid to stay hydrated and satisfy my tea addiction without all the added sugar, I've been on something of a green tea taste testing mission. And, having tasted a lot of tea, I've discovered that lots of green teas either don't taste nice or don't taste of anything but, I did come across a Twinings range that was a game changer - full of flavour and naturally sweet, these teas are my favourite way to stay hydrated in the colder weather!

Twinings Gingerbread Green Tea. Christmas might have passed, but there's no need to let go of the delicious festive flavours with this gingerbread tea. I really couldn't believe just how gingery this tea smelled when I first brewed it - I'm talking full on gingerbread smell here! With a spicy ginger flavour and just a hint of sweetness, this flavour makes for a mug full of cosiness that is just perfect for the Winter months.

Twinings Lemon Drizzle Tea. Light, refreshing and sweet, this lemon drizzle tea is my go-to flavour when I need a little pick me up. This tea really does smell like a slice of lemon drizzle cake, the refreshing lemony flavour is balanced with a subtle sweetness that makes staying hydrated a total breeze.

Twinings Chocolate Coconut Tea. While they may be the Marmite of the Celebrations tin, Bounty was always one of my favourite chocolates and now, as a vegan, I'm partial to the Dairy-Free Coconut Bite from Pret. Given my love of coconut chocolate, this tea was bound to be a winner for me. Coconut is the primary flavour in this tea, but the hint of chocolate adds a sweetness and creaminess to the tea that makes it feel like you're drinking something far more decadent than a green tea!

I'm really not quite sure how they do it, but Twinings have created a range of teas that, unlike most green teas, not only smell good but actually taste amazing, because, let's be real, how could teas that really taste like baked goods not be amazing?! And, they're definitely the tastiest way to stay cosy and hydrated in winter.
