Postby Bread-Monster » Fri Sep 07, 2007 4:35 pm

I haven't had Tea in ages. I quit because i realized I was an addict and it was turning my teeth yellow. I love tea, I still do. I quit last sunday.

I also crave yumcha. I haven't been in so long. :(

I actually went for yum cha the other week.

It can be relatively healthy if you don't order things that are deep fried. Live life to the max!!!

I don't like deep fried stuff, makes my throat sore. The steamed stuff I can't get enough of. I also order the special stuff that I only know the names of in chinese and the tofu dessert thing. The jelly fish is great too, the crunchiness of it all! The yam and turnip cakes, mmmm. Oh god, my mouth is watering thinking of all those delicious steamed dumplings with prawn and chives and the chilli oil to go on top of them...*droollll*

Green tea is good for you lots of antioxidants.

I've never tried yum cha. I don't like the taste of a lot of asian dishes. Don't like how they use oyster sauce and fish sauce - yuk LOL

Yeah I dont like Chinese, the boy loves it though so I feel guilty that we cant go there, but he knows I dont like it so he never suggests it :D He's so good to me! Hehe.

I love tea too! Yum! Im really into green tea with citrus atm. Got the idea from others here on the forum. I used to drink peppermint tea which is divine, but apparently green tea speeds up the metabolism so ive switched to that. Im addicted! :D

there is a place called Tea for Two and its only got tea in it. So many teas, from healthy ones, to flavoured ones, to classic ones.

The man and i went in there and we smelt a heap of them and i felt nausious ha ha stupid tea, but we bought a turkish apple tea, its very sweet and its only these fine sugary stuff that you add water to, tastes like apple.

But they had other weird ones there like chocolate, strawberries and cream, mint etc

Interesting place to go look in :)

Mind you, i found out i cant drink any tea unless its the plain ones, early grey, big cuppa etc, the others make me sick :(

Tea CAN be good for you, but the antioxidants in black tea are only able to be absorbed if you have it black (an enzyme in the milk changes it). If you have to have milk, try to keep it low fat and avoid sugar if possible.

green tea is better for you and higher in antioxidants, but still has caffeine.

Rooibos is caffeine free (comes from a different plant and originates in South Africa I believe) and has a natural slightly sweet flavour and doesn't turn bitter if you leave it steeping which I love.

I had to cut down my tea dramatically as I was finding when I worked Saturdays I would get huge caffeine withdrawal headaches!!

You do know that the actual stuff chinese people eat aren't the stuff they serve you, right? :wink:

In actual fact, they're far blander. They mainly consist of variable dishes of steamed lawn clippings they called vegetables, a bowl of rice, some steamed meat and soup. I use to hate having dinner at my aunty's when I was younger because the food was boring. Now that I'm older, I don't mind it as much. That's because I have discovered the wonders of CHILLI SAUCE. That's right, chilli sauce can make any meal a wonder.

green tea with mint is my fave. in the last few weeks i've stopped drinking coffee as much & have gone back to green tea during the day instead. i tried to have an instant coffee the other day at work and only had a few sips - it tasted gross! now i'll just save coffee for the real thing as a treat!

i love yum cha. unfortunately it doesn't always agree with my ibs :( i love all the steamed dumplings & chinese (jasmine) tea. yum!

There's a tea shop in Melbourne in QV central. It's owned by a japanese guy and you can buy all sorts of interesting stuff. I found raspberry tea, supposedly it's good for weightloss, but I wouldn't know, I think it smells great. They also have rose tea and about 20 varieties of green tea.
