Anti-Aging, Weight Losing, Beverage.

Since I have decided to get healthy, I have been drinking my healthy potion every morning. I am not a nutritionist & I am not good with medical jargon, if you will, so I took it upon myself to explain it with bullet points, in layman's terms. The coolest thing about this drink I think is that it will literally burn fat. That's amazing.



Before last week, I used to just grab a plain green tea pack. But, I found these little gems of green tea in different flavors. They have 4 flavors in all but I ended up getting the Mango one and the Acai Berry & Blackberry one. 2 for $3! This was great for me because I am not a huge fan of green tea. I just know I need to drink it because it's good for me. 

Quick review on Bentley's Green Tea: As soon as I opened up a mango packet I smelled mango. It tastes like both green tea and artificial mango. I personally think it is a better option then just regular green tea.

So I was looking for something to put together in the morning that would speed up my metabolism, & give me energy. If your on the same journey, look no further!


1. 1 bag of green tea (or 2!)
2. the juice of 1/2 a lemon (or a full lemon! I use 1/2)
3. 1 tbl. honey
4. dash of cinnamon









Good To Know 
-It's a tangy, sweet, & spicy super drink!

-Weather you drink lemon water or green tea with lemon in the water, it still counts as water since green tea doesn't have caffeine or sugar in it.

-Remember, to get the benefits of the green tea, you must drink it normally! I have a cup every morning.

-I like it warm because I think it is better for you that way: especially with the lemon in it. Don't quote me but I am almost positive. Follow the links to find out more info about everything! It is actually pretty interesting stuff!

-It can replace your caffeine!  I usually have a cuppa coffee or a small glass of coke along with it but sometimes nix those and I feel just as energized!

-Lemon Juice in hot water is believed to clear the digestive system and purify liver as well. Sounds good for any hangover!

-The Green Tea has a lot of antioxidants, and that the stuff that reverses the signs of aging.

-When I started digging deeper I started to realize that even though these ingredients do amazing things when consumed alone, the benefits when you combine them are even better.

I normally drink green tea for the antioxidants and my "daily dose of anti-cancer" since there's so much cancer in my family. I hope it helps when I'm older since I'm only 18 now. As I'm comfortable with my weight, I don't drink it for weight loss, but I'd love to try it the way you drink it :) It sounds yummy!

I found you on the BlogLoveTherapy blog hop and I'll definitely be following you! I love your blog!

I hope our green tea will help us out!
