Antioxidant Green Tea Porridge

I must admit, I was a bit apprehensive about this recipe, and how it would turn out. The thought of combining green tea with porridge did seem rather strange, but my curiosity got the better of me and I’m so glad it did. I was so lucky enough to receive this Repower Green Tea from Artemis, and that was it! Inspiration levels were high and the ball began rolling in the direction of a recipe success!

This Antioxidant Green Tea Porridge recipe brought back all those memories, and reminded me of how strong willed I was. These day’s I’m a little loose around the reigns, but slowly am tightening them back up. Continue reading

So refreshing on a hot day! 

There’s a few supermarket brand I love too, like the Plant Organic Female Balance tea bags. I really love the flavor of this, and especially enjoy it in the morning with my breakfast. But taking a few steps up in the ‘tea-ladder’ comes Artemis. “Artemis is New Zealand owned and operated and exists to harness the power of traditional plant medicine. Continue reading
