    would anyone like to have a go at describing how green or white tea tastes lol?

    Thinking of expanding my tea tastes at the weekend but wondered if someone could give me a heads up on what they're like and/or their personal preferences?

    Thanks in advance :)

    peppermint tea without the peppermint? How on earth do you describe it? No idea. One thing about green tea - many people complain of bitterness... it is only bitter if you leave the teabag in too long. No more than 2mins and then it tastes quite nice

    Green tea is odd, but ok! put a bit of cold water in the mugh, then add the tea bag, then pour over the hot water. I only swish the teabag round a few times, can't stand it strong!

    You know, it never once occured to me to make water flavourings with hot water? How daft am I??? And I have been dying for a different hot drink for a while now!!!!!

    I have savoury drink but havent actually tried it yet. Just imagine it tasting like stock, and that doesnt sound so fun! lol

    festivalfairy ... either SS or SS+ which are you doing? If SS or the SS+ where you add a meal then no milk. How bad is it? All or nothing is our motto

    yes the savoury drink is like the marigold low salt vege bouillon but is available from your CDC. If it tastes v. similar to the vege bouillon then it is actually surprisingly good. Even non-dieters have tried it and liked it.

    I'm not a huge fan of pure green tea though I can take it with a little bit of sweetener.
    Love peppermint and also rooibos/redbush tea.
    Got rooibos & green tea combination from the supermarket the other day, but unfortunately it tastes more like green than red. Will persevere though!
