    Green tea is an acquied taste!

    I love it personally

    Try peppermint tea or peppermint with eucalyptus, peppermint with nettle - all from Tesco

    Or Oolong tea which is strong green tea

    any ideas for nice flavoured tea? I've got mint which is really yummy, but after that I wouldn't have a clue what I'm allowed!

    Camomile is a no no as it is derived from the flower not the leaf.

    Supermarkets are even making it tempting when you buy flavoured teas now. When I went this morning they've only started to stock banana/toffee flavour teas (can I have them???Lol).
    Do I take it fennel is off as well then as it's technically a flower?

    You can add the CD water-flavouring to ordinary black tea or to green tea to make a fruity tea

    I have the flavoured water heated up - does a great job of curbing my fruit tea cravings.

    I gave up caffeine from last week, and have been drinking green tea. Definitely an acquired taste, but must admit the Co-op Green Tea (89p for 20 bags) is very refreshing and a must-buy for me from now on!! :cool:
