Detox With TASSIMO Green Tea

Recently I was sent a box of Twinings Green Tea and Mint as part of the TASSIMO blogger challenge , I was highly surprised as I had been using my Tassimo for coffee and especially hot chocolates over the Christmas period ; we got through more squirty cream than you can shake a cinnamon stick at.

It is refreshing to know that your Tassimo can be used for more than coffee and hot chocolate especially good for me to help with a detoxing after the excesses of Christmas. Green tea is well known for it's antixotant qualities and is supposed to be good for cleansing .

The mint taste is not as you might suspect over powering,  it is wonderfully subtle and refreshing and I normally heave at tea without milk but I liked the simple cleansing taste of this. Mr T was a bit more resistant but I won him over eventually "if you don't try then you don't know " is my motto.

I even managed to get green tea into a chocolate cake recipe  whilst I agree cake isn't quite in keeping with getting over the mountain of food I consumed at Christmas . It was jolly nice with a cup of the Twinings Green tea and Mint.


  1. I especially like the "I normally heave at tea without milk..." comment. That made me chuckle. I've never tried a green tea and I think the negative thing with the Tassimo is that you have to order quite a few of them, so if you don't like it, you're stuck with it. That happened with some of the creme brule ones we got (vomit). I drink so much of the Costa caramel, Carte Noir caramel and Kip drinks the Americano and Cafe Creme. I'd be interested in sampling more if they did small taster packs with a few teas in.

  2. I was recently given some of these by a friend of mine. Like you I normally use my machine for posh coffee and hot chocoalte. I would normally buy normal green tea or peppermint tea as tea bags- but when I tried these ones they were lush, sweet and full of flavour. So although a bit more expensive they are the nicest :) PS feel free to send me kittens or wine- both will be appreciated LOL

  3. When I arrived at detoxification a week later of drinking the green juice, I had a level of brain clarity like I had never encountered previously. I felt like my psyche was being opened to a whole new planet that I had never encountered up to that focus.
