I don't usually like processed foods. I don't like or trust vitamin/supplement infomercials. But there are exceptions to the rules, and I've found a product I like.
I heard an infomercial for HerbaGreen Tea. They said "all natural." They said, "delicious taste." They said, "no calories." I said, "Yea, sure, right." There was no way I was calling that toll free number.
But shortly thereafter I was at my little, friendly, local health food store. There was HerbaGreen Tea on their shelf. I asked the owner about it. Greta is very picky about the products she sells and the vendors she uses. She was really enthusiastic about this tea. So I bought a bottle.
You put one eyedropper full in a glass of water. It is concentrated green tea sweetened with stevia. It contains a couple of herbs that are either neutral or not rated, and it contains licorice which is recommended for Type O stomach health.
It truly does taste delicious. I use it most often if I am rushing out the door to school without time to fix a snack. I can squeeze a dropper full into my water bottle. It is delightfully refreshing at 3:30 in the afternoon. Sometimes around 10 pm I get hungry, and I know better than to eat anything that late at night. I can quickly fix a glass of green tea, and it satisfies me.
I still make real green tea with peppermint. I suspect that freshly brewed is probably better for me than the concentrate in the bottle. But on those occasions when I need a short cut, I'm glad to have HerbaGreen.
