As I mentioned in my previous post, I love tea! I used to take my tea with skim milk and two sugars, then I “progressed” onto sweeteners with whole milk. Now, I have it on it’s own – I don’t think I could go back to how I drank it before, my tastes have changed so much. Tea is surely the perfect Paleo drink, naturally low carb and nothing artificial (if you’re careful with the type you select).
I try to drink a lot of water, but there are times when it’s great to have a hot drink. One favourite is hot water with a slice of lemon or lime, but I’ve recently got I’ve finally ventured away from the mass produced tea bags, to a fantastic specialist tea shop near my office in Sydney.
I’d rather not have caffeine, but I have my tea fairly weak so I’m not too worried about it. It’s probably a worthwhile exchange for the antioxidants anyway.
I started off with Gunpowder tea and today I added a few more to my desk collection. I thought I’d try “Glogg”, which is black tea, cinnamon, orange, almond, ginger (I seem to have ginger in everything at the moment), cloves & cardamon. I got an organic Sri Lankan Ceylon tea, for my morning cup of tea. Then, as I was paying I spotted “Japanese Lime” which is the most amazing combination of green tea, lemon, lime & lemon-grass. I’ll be trying that one as an iced tea too.
What is your Paleo drink of choice?
