This thread is drifting in a shallow pool of green tea...
I'm not sure green tea is a replacement for chocolate milk. Chocolate milk actually tastes great where green tea is an acquired taste with restrained flavor.
I ain't no expert on green tea but being the obsessive character I am (restraint? moderation? Is this any way to live your life?) I went out and bought numerous brands as well as few tea pots and a bunch of thermoses. Now as I drive around (for work or play) I bring it with me, including on the course.
I thought I was pretty much immune to the over consumption of caffeine but slamming it all day long taught me otherwise. So I am now dabbling with decaf tea and or mixing decaf and the real stuff. Excuse me for a moment, sip, sip, guzzle.
The teas I have tried (except one) have an odd aftertaste. It is not bad but my mouth feels drier after a drink than before, leading to another sip and another sip. Excuse me a moment. The exception is Salada decaf green tea which is the current favorite. It seems wrong to be drinking decaf anything. I'm the guy who orders extra shots of espresso in his over sized latte. Green tea has supposed health benefits. Is this also true with decaf?
With beer I love a good aftertaste ( I'm an IPA hophead). Perhaps with time I won't even notice it. I do know that if I had to use pay toilets I would have to keep a pocket full of change handy all the time. Excuse me again.
Maybe there is a brand out there with a smoother aftertaste but I have most of the major brands and even stuff from Japan. Any recommendations from the group?
