Roasted Green Tea (Hojicha)
My first cup of long awaited tea after this week of tea deprivation! I chose hojicha (roasted green tea) I bought from a Japanese shop in Brooklyn. The mug is from Dado Tea, a marvelous tea cafe in Central Square, Cambridge, MA.
My doctor, while warning me that tea can exacerbate GERD, agrees tea is a healthy drink. I like that he understands my tea affection (affliction) and is not outright banning it for my diet, encouraging me to explore strategies (more herbals, green teas, etc.).
After my first cup, I feel slight FIT, and a small bit of heartburn -- but I've had these issues without the tea all week. So…
p.s. Green tea is one of the recent health crazes, but of course us green tea drinkers know how it good it is, and how good it is for you, all along, right?
