When I bought this and tried it for the first time, it was, indeed, on the somewhat bitter side to me. So, to make it a little bit sweeter, I added about a teaspoon of organic honey to my cup and reheated it. Oh my goodness, what a difference organic honey, or sugar (real sugar) will make when it comes to drinking this tea.
Today when I got home from work, I heated up a cup of non tap water, and poured in one packet of green tea, stirred it with my spoon and added a teaspoon of organic honey...then....I added my cup of tea to my smoothie.
This green tea really does taste good in a smoothie. Today, I made my smoothie with a banana, some frozen strawberries, frozen blueberries, frozen kale and one cup of warmed up green tea. All I have to say is, it tasted delicious and this is something you will just have to try for yourself. In fact, you can use my recipe too.
