A cup of hot, fresh brewed tea can do wonders. I have always been a fan of masala chai for as long as I remember. For me it works like magic. Whenever I am tired, upset, had an argument, had a long day at work, exhausted or sick a cup of tea can make things straight.
And tea just adds on to the pleasure whenever I want to celebrate the small things, chit-chat, travel, relax, read or want a small snack.
Lately, I was indulging too much in tea, which had increased my intake of sugar. That is when I decided to get myself a pack of Green Tea.
Twinings is one brand that is easily available and can be found in most stores however big or small they are. Let us see how it fared for me. I have replaced my morning and evening masala tea with Twinings Green Tea.

My Experience with Twinings Of London Green Tea
Twinings of London comes in cardboard box packaging that is pretty simple. It comes in several flavors but I just picked up the plain tea. I have tried it in peach flavor and lemon flavor but did not like the taste. I just want my tea to taste like plain tea and nothing else. Though, Earl Grey is one flavor I would like to try.
Each tea bag is packed separately in small envelopes that make it very hygienic. I even keep 2-3 tea bags in my office bag so that I can avoid the regular office vending machine tea.
There are many known benefits of Green Tea, I have not used it long enough to comment on most of them but one. It is a very good hunger suppressant or even cravings suppressant.
Trust me on this, whenever I feel like munching on something, I know it’s just my stomach getting bored and wanting something to do. I can easily carry on without eating anything for next two hours after a cup of green tea.
