Green tea is healthier, caffeinated, and won’t make me gain 5 pounds of water weight overnight…and it still possesses the ultimate St. Patrick’s Day color attribute (green, duh). Plus, Bigelow’s tea is significantly cheaper for all you budget babes– their bonus packs actually come with 4 extra tea bags while supplies last, y’all– and is available at any Walmart location. This 3-generation, family owned, and all American company manufactures the absolute best tea in the country, especially for the price. They package their bags in handy foil pouches for quality assurance, which also guarantees safe and easy transport in my disaster-prone, Mary Poppins-sized bag. Multi-functionally fabulous.
In addition to a variety of other beverage choices, Bigelow makes regular green tea, caffeinated or decaffeinated, and/or you can choose one with an added flavor, like mint, mango, or pomegranate. My personal favorite is their green tea with mango—seriously delish. If you’re not a hot tea kind of person, add a little bit of sugar and put it over ice. It’s a nice substitute for iced coffee in the mornings, too.
So what exactly are some of the health perks to opting for this “super” beverage? According to my research, green tea is considered one of the world’s healthiest drinks and contains the highest amount of antioxidants of any tea on the market. Natural chemicals called polyphenols are what are thought to provide its almighty anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic effects (layman’s terms translation: reduces risk of cancer and heart disease). In addition to potentially being responsible for weight loss, medical studies have found that green tea is helpful in preventing dental cavities, stress, chronic fatigue, treating skin conditions and improving arthritis by reducing inflammation. So basically, drink up, y’all!
Happy Early St. Patty’s Day! Don’t get pinched!
You're just so cute!!
You're so cute!!!!

Thanks, girl 🙂
Green tea with peach sounds wonderful, xoxo.
It's seriously delicious. Please try it!
I'll have to try the Green Tea with Peach, sounds wonderful. I'm a huge fan of cold green tea!
Isn't it the best?! Panera has the most AMAZING iced green tea I've ever tasted.
I wish I could say that I liked tea. I have been trying to teach myself to love it but it just hasn't happened yet.

Boo. Maybe it's an acquired taste, who knows?!
green tea is love 🙂
How fun!! What a refreshing way to look at St. Patty's day! I am over here stressing about the perfect green outfit to wear lol Thank you for sharing and you look adorable in that hat! 🙂
I'm sure you looked FAB, Nancy! Hope it was great! 🙂
This Looks Yummy I love Green Tea =)
I'm not a tea drinker but I have heard green tea is super good for you
It is, and it's surprisingly refreshing. Give it a go!
HA! I love the expressions on your face in those pictures.. Love green tea. I can't say I have ever had green beer though.. lol.
I'm going to be honest… it tastes just like regular beer, but with green dye in it. You're not missing much.
I love green tea, and it certainly has far more weight and health benefits that drinking beer…green or not. But I wouldn't drink green beer anyways! I love St. Patty's Day, but there are so many better ways to celebrate it, and green tea sounds as good to me as any of them!
Amen, sister! Hope you had a great day 🙂
You are totally cute! I love how you broke down the amount of miles on the treadmill you'd have to add to compensate for drinking a bunch of green beer….hardly seems worth it after seeing that! Green tea is such a healthier way to drink something green today.
Right?! I'm glad you enjoyed my post! Hope you had a great St. Patty's!
Green tea is my favorite!! I love it iced with honey and lemon!
Yummm. I have two wishes for our next Starbucks trip: my card reloads efficiently AND I remember to drink green tea. Kthx.
