u/Darmok-on-the-Ocean · 42 pointsr/OSHA

You make fun of it, but I have Death Wish coffee in my pantry, which has pretty much identical labeling.

PSA: I'm not shilling for this coffee. It's not very good.

u/punkterminator · 37 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

You can buy some coffee in bags but it's not that popular. Since most coffee makers pour water through the beans, you need more beans/ground coffee to get stronger coffee. I guess manufacturers found selling prepackaged coffee like tea isn't that lucrative if people want to pick how much coffee beans they want.

u/justanothertut · 24 pointsr/dataisbeautiful

The resin that green mountain uses in their cartridges isn't recyclable or biodegradable.

These are and they're a lot cheaper. If you use a keurig 2.0 you may need a clip to bypass the DRM.

u/anonworkacct · 18 pointsr/technology

There are 97% biodegradable ones on Amazon and they're super cheap as far as k-cups go!

u/kathalytic · 11 pointsr/Ultralight

Are coffee tea-bags not popular for some reason? They are my go-to for camping.

u/carelessgrandma · 11 pointsr/Coffee

If you want instant coffee this isn't terrible, or even Starbucks Via. Every other instant coffee I've tried has tasted like stomach acid.

u/cicishops · 10 pointsr/intermittentfasting

It’s $5 off on Amazon right now FYI 😃

RUNA Organic Guayusa Loose Leaf Energy Tea, 1 Pound (16oz) | High Caffeine Coffee Alternative | Sustained Boost with No Jitters | Organic and Antioxidant Rich

u/WCC335 · 10 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

If, like me, you're not picky about your coffee, but you like the convenience of a Keurig, you can get 80 K-Cups for $26. The coffee actually has great reviews, too.

u/WhereintheOK · 9 pointsr/tea

Watch out because Some places add sugar to loose leaf teas (especially Teavanna).

This cinnamon tea by Harney & Sons tastes sweet, but has no sugar or sweeteners. They even tested it to verify it is sugar free. It is just the cloves & cinnamon.

u/LAWSKEE · 8 pointsr/keto

Let me introduce you to Kirkland's Green Tea.. You can find it at Costco. Check the reviews!

u/Pootzen · 7 pointsr/fasting

Pretty sure this stuff will be exorbitantly expensive compared to DIY methods.

I drink this Gunpowder Tea when not fasting (drinking green tea on a fast gives me nausea).

u/BigBlueTrekker · 7 pointsr/CampingandHiking

I just use the instant coffee. Really not a big difference to me in fresh brewed or instant. Especially when I'm out hiking, anything tastes amazing after a long day.

u/RedditStoleMyTime · 7 pointsr/dataisbeautiful

I use San Fransisco Bay coffee from Amazon. They'd completely recyclable and about half the price or less compared to green mountain, especially if you use the subscribe and save option.

u/DarkwingDuc · 7 pointsr/environment

Why don't more people just use stuff like this in their Keurig? They're just as convenient, cheaper, 97% biodegradable, fare trade, and, in my experience, just better tasting than the vast majority of K-cup varieties.

u/LolaBleu · 7 pointsr/Supplements

Matcha. I make myself a matcha latte first thing every morning and the combination of caffeine and theanine really makes a difference for me. 1tsp matcha (I use Jade Leaf) + 1tbls honey + 1 cup unsweetened milk of choice.

Exercise is also really helpful for treating depression, as is a solid sleep schedule. If you're having trouble sleeping I highly recommend Olly Sleep supplement (for nights when my brain just won't shut up I take Olly Goodbye Stress)

u/oh_just_stuff · 6 pointsr/1200isplenty

I really love Throat Coat when I'm fasting. Throat Coat has no caffeine and has such a nice aftertaste, it almost feels like cheating!

u/truthislife · 6 pointsr/Anxiety

I drink the Yogi stress relief tea - it also have lavender in it. It's not nearly as intense as that, but it definitely helps me! If nothing else, I sit down for a few moments and just decompress with a cup of tea. Plus it's yummy and has cute sayings on the tabs at the end of the string.

u/NOREDDITNO · 6 pointsr/LifeProTips

For all you people wondering which green tea to drink, let me introduce you to

This motherfucker right here.

Matcha is not only the best possible green tea you can have, but it's also delicious. I reuse the bag about 3 times before it starts tasting watered down, but it hardly ever gets that over-used teabag taste. And don't let the Kirkland Signature turn you off, it's still genuine matcha.

Also, you'll only like it if you like green tea in general. I've had a coworker who hates the stuff, but loves things like peppermint and sugar in her green tea (???)

Edit: I also recommend black tea. If you've tried milk tea, you've basically had black tea, except without sugar and milk. Green tea has more antioxidants than black tea, but in my opinion, black tea tastes better than green.

u/Pinkie_Pylon · 6 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Yeah I'd say it's fairly standard.

The best household tea is Yorkshire Gold though.

u/PantalonesPantalones · 6 pointsr/xxfitness

I put foot powder in mine and I just started storing tea bags in them overnight to absorb moisture and leave a light scent.

Edit: I use these giant tea bags

u/neil_striker · 6 pointsr/Frugal

> Are you advocating for this to be a purely middle class sub?

No. I was thinking more along the lines of frugality is a means for personal joy and financial freedom. And r/frugal has become a bragging post on how not to spend money at all. Not cheapness, not frugality, but bragging. A display of anti-largess.

I'm feeling r/frugal should be a way for people to help each other see into life habits and change them. How showing me what was pulled out of a dumpster doesn't make me want to jump into a dumpster

And if someone thinks Kcups are too expensive at .70 each, I like the idea that this subreddit will help them find this option at .31 :

u/myzkyti · 6 pointsr/tea

I am assuming that you're trying to make the Thai iced tea served in restaurants and bubble tea shops? If so, this mix is what you're looking for :3 It's already got the tea and spices mixed in. In trying to find a recipe online to make my own blend, this brand came up over and over, and I have to admit, it really does taste exactly the same. I've since found it in several different Asian markets, so if you have one locally, you may want to try there first. It takes a fairly high tea to water ratio, because it needs to be very strong, and you will need to get a can of sweetened condensed milk to pour in after it's chilled.

u/JeremyR22 · 5 pointsr/britishproblems

Expat pro tip: Yorkshire Gold is available on Amazon. It's even on Prime and as a subscription/regular delivery in the US.

u/CradleRobin · 5 pointsr/starcitizen

Coffee you say?

u/Pyromantice · 5 pointsr/smashbros

This is the brand I use, the whole bag makes 4ish gallons and takes about 4-8 hours depending on how strong you want it. I just use a large stock pot and stir it every 20 min or so but there is a mesg holder you can get for the tea if you aren't going to be around to stir it e enough

u/swampgreen · 4 pointsr/keto

Throat coat tea!!! Comes in regular or lemon - both are awesome. The lemon one covers up the faint licorice flavor that shows up in the plain one.


And the longer you let it steep, the more you notice a very subtle sweetness - I think from the licorice root... No carbs, super effective, and good either hot or iced.


Hope you feel better soon!!

u/fake_n00b · 4 pointsr/tea

I second this comment. I am pretty sure they use this one. It's like 5$ in chinese grocery stores.

u/boris377 · 4 pointsr/Calgary

Only place i've ever found it. Careful it stains the crap out of everything. I suggest buying the bag in the suggested products if you want to make a pot of this tea instead of just a glass.

u/sophmiester · 4 pointsr/tea
  • Whenever a vendor has a tea they list as "silver needle", you can safely assume there's going to be a price markup. Ignore teavana's white teas - the cheaper/better tasting teas will come from smaller tea vendors.
  • I've tried many green tea brands, but the one that sticks out the most is Kirklands Matcha Blend. This is my go-to green tea nowdays. It's cheaper to buy at costco instead of amazon though. It's a blend of matcha powder and tea leaves.
u/jhp58 · 4 pointsr/CFB



u/UndefinedUserOnLine7 · 4 pointsr/DunkinDonuts

Most stores brew it in the coffee maker. Lipton tea bags have directions for this. Make sure it is the gallon size tea bags if you go that route.

u/Feldon · 4 pointsr/smoking

I use a coffee based rub at my places for braised pork shoulder. However I use [instant espresso] ( the rub is made up of the coffee, smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Never tried it on short ribs, but its very tasty, the coffee is subtle though.

u/scrooched_moose · 4 pointsr/Cooking

Basically, yeah. I use this one (although that's an absurd price).

I don't see why you couldn't use instant coffee, although I'd bump it to 1.5tsp because it's a little weaker. I use 2tsp of espresso powder when I make this because I like getting a little more coffee flavor.

u/RhinoSand · 4 pointsr/saskatoon
u/SirSid · 4 pointsr/technology

There's a company out in california that makes k-kup compatible cups using all biodegradable materials. And they are cheaper than store brand generics. They come out to 37 cents a cup instead of 50 for store brand and 75 for keurig brand

u/DoctorPainMD · 4 pointsr/tea

depends on what you want to do with it really.

Matcha requires a lot more processing than say a loose leaf tea. it has to be grown, harvested, treated and ground a certain way, and those things add to the cost of the product.

Matcha is split between 'culinary grade' and 'ceremonial grade'. culinary grade is generally lesser quality because the standards for its growth and processing is more lax, the leaves aren't harvested immediately and not shaded as much. It tends to be a stronger, more bitter tea. It is also the cheapest, and ends up being the tea that people use for cooking and mixing into lattes etc.

ceremonial grade is a lot milder, sweeter and less bitter, and is substantially more expensive.

if price is a factor, and you're not gonna make straight matcha with just hot water, go for a good quality culinary grade. this one is pretty good for an introductory one, if you mix with some water and hot milk, and some sugar for a latte feel.

I haven't bought a good ceremonial tea (poor student) but i have tried it. if you got the cash, go for it.

I don't have all that much experience with matcha itself, because its so expensive on the whole. I'd defer to the opinions of the others here.

u/ketoccino · 3 pointsr/keto

I've been sick for the past 8 days, and had a sore throat for the first 5 or so.


I've been 100% keto throughout the holidays, and didn't want a stupid cold to knock me out of ketosis. So I've been drinking hot toddys, and they are a game changer.


You can put just about anything you want in them. But I have a Holiday Spice tea. (Or, I've also combined a tea bag of Holiday Spice with a tea bag of Throat Coat, and I liked that combination even better). While the tea is steeping, I simmer some sugar substitute with fresh ginger, lemon juice, orange peel, peppermint extract, and a cinnamon stick. I strain the sugar to remove the solids, and combine it with the tea. Then add a nice shot of whiskey.


I've never had anything help with a sore throat so much! I've read that the alcohol actually kills bacteria in the back of your throat. Don't know if that's true, but I would take one sip of the toddy and my sore throat would be just gone for the next 5-10 minutes. I wish I had known about hot toddys before I started keto, because I would've used them back then too.


Hope you feel better real soon!

u/keakealani · 3 pointsr/singing

Amazon? I'd also bet on your local health food/specialty store, or maybe even some places that sell natural remedies and supplements and that sort of stuff. You may also find it in either the health food or tea section of your local grocery store.

u/10_KG_VALUE_PACK · 3 pointsr/StackAdvice

I'm so sorry to hear about your mom's situation. As a fellow TBI sufferer who still deals with all the associated bullshit on a daily basis, and as a fellow son of a mother with less-than-ideal mental/cognitive health, my heart goes out to you both. Biiiiig post coming up. I know you frequent /r/nootropics and similar subs so sorry if I'm just telling you stuff you already know.

It goes without saying that it would be ideal if you could get her to consult a specialist about her condition, preferably a good neurologist and psychiatrist who can work together to develop a medication, supplementation, diet, exercise, general lifestyle etc. regimen tailored specifically to her. If you have the means to do so, make it happen.

First things first, it would obviously be incredibly beneficial if you could convince her to cut out or drastically reduce her alcohol consumption. It sounds likely that she's self-medicating for depression related to her head injury and its consequences (I was there for a long time), so you might see about getting her onto a prescribed antidepressant. (Side note: it is crucial that she see a good psychiatrist to discuss taking any prescription psychiatric medication. Despite being legally allowed to prescribed many potent psychoactive drugs, GP's simply do not have the expertise necessary to make a good diagnosis and prescribe accordingly. Chances are if you ask for an antidepressant they'll just give you whatever a major pharma company shill most recently gave them samples of. Speaking from experience.) If you don't want to bring in the "big guns" so to speak just yet, then bacopa monnieri might be a good place to start. Very mild, very well tolerated, with a host of nootropic benefits to boot - it's known to improve memory significantly after about 3 months of supplementation. I started taking it about a month ago and for me personally it's been amazingly helpful; I can't wait for the memory enhancement to kick in. If it keeps on working like it has been, I don't think I'll ever stop taking it.

If you don't think she'll ever be willing to go completely sober, then make sure she's minimizing the harmful effects of alcohol with MisterYouAreSoDumb's damage/hangover prevention stack. (mind that NAC should always be taken before drinking, not during or after.)

I recommend trying to get her to replace alcohol with something less harmful, maybe every second drinking day or something at first. The obvious recommendation is marijuana, though as you're undoubtedly aware there are a ton of possible downsides to weed use as well. In the long run though, from a cognitive health point of view, it's far safer. If you're able to, get a few strains with different cannabinoid profiles for her to try so she can decide what she likes best - a high CBD/low THC strain (typically indicas) is probably more similar to alcohol than high THC, though it's still very different. If you decide to go with weed, make sure she's actively endeavouring to replace alcohol with it, rather than just adding it to her usual booze usage. Make edibles, extracts, or get her a vape if smoking doesn't appeal to her.

Then there's Kava. Its effects are probably a little closer to alcohol's than weed (though again, quite different) and it's much easier to get your hands on as it's legal pretty much everywhere (and easy enough to get through customs if you're somewhere lame like Australia). A good, affordable "beginner's" kava that she can try to see if she likes the effects is Yogi Tea's Stress Relief Tea
, as it's heavily flavoured and thus masks the acquired taste/feeling of kava pretty well. To really get a "drunk" feeling from it though, you may need to use 3 or 4 bags. Brew it in coconut milk or half water/half coconut cream to make it especially tasty. Or, if she's willing to tolerate the taste, go straight for a high quality source like Hawaiian Kava and brew it traditionally. Just make sure that she doesn't have any alcohol in her system whenever she uses it, as apparently that's a dangerous combo.

Also, if she does decide to quit booze at any point, make sure she does so safely.

Now, as for things to take... I'm still trying to perfect a regimen myself.

Over on the NeuroTalk forum, home to one of the largest online community of concussion and TBI sufferers, the recommended stack, as put together by the granddaddy of the forum, Mark of Idaho, is as follows:

>B-12 (500 to 1000 mcgs daily)
a B-50 complex, for all the other B's so you get a good balance of B's
a high potency multi-vitamin like GNC Mega Women/Men. Centrum and One a Day are too weak.
Niacin, 200 to 500 mgs
Some extra anti-oxidants, Vit C and Vit E
D3, plenty of this, 1000 to 5000 iu's
Omega 3 fish oil, with a proper balance of Omega 6 and 9
Calcium with magnesium, 500 mgs per day
I also have added
Curcumin (pricy but worth it) 950 mgs daily This is a Turmeric extract
DHEA, 25 mgs , a hormone that helps the body balance the other hormones, If your skin gets oily try 1/2 of a 25 mgs tablet. I only take a half of a tablet.
a Costco High Energy multipack (7 pieces) in place of the multi-vitamin
I have recently added:
Cayenne capsules
Resveratrol, it is supposed to help the Omega 3 fish oil work better
Garlic capsules for cholesterol
L-theanine for GABA regulation

I don't know that it's perfect but it's probably a good place to start. I think he might be going overboard with the amount of B vitamins in there... As long as she's taking the full dosage of a good multivitamin like Source Naturals Life Force (gets pretty pricey at 4 capsules a day, my approach is to take half the recommended dose and then add in a sensibly-dosed B complex. Any complex that uses methylfolate instead of folic acid should be of good quality.) she should be all set for B vitamins. Curcumin to reduce any residual inflammation is probably a good idea too - it's pretty pricey though. Make sure to get pills with added piperine, and I've seen it recommended that you take it with a fat source as well.

This thread, though more specifically targeted at treating a brain injury immediately after it's happened, is a great resource. Anything that's good for the immediate effects of a brain injury is probably going to be beneficial in the long term as well.

Oh! Also, the uridine stack. I don't recall the exact theory behind it, but it gets a lot of buzz as a means of preventing/reducing dementia/alzheimer's/general cognitive aging, so much so that somebody turned it into a drink which they now make a buttload of money from.

I'm super tired so I'm gonna just wrap this up neatly now... Might come back to edit it, but you're probably sick of reading crap from me as it is! For your mom, neurogenesis is king now, pretty much. Help her give her brain what it needs to heal and grow, and keep it away from things that hinder or harm these processes (booze, stress, poor diet/lifestyle, etc.). Lion's Mane is a good start, but I'd highly recommend looking into Cerebrolysin (requires injection), possibly P21 (like a refined Cerebrolysin, but very new to the market, so kinda risky), Semax (typically injected but if you send an email to [email protected] and ask nicely they'll be able to hook you up with a nasal spray), Noopept (should be taken sublingually), piracetam (has been studied fairly extensively for post-TBI, seems quite beneficial), NSI-189, etc. Supplement-wise, this kind of stuff is probably going to be the most beneficial for your mom in the long run. I recommend checking out this post by user Rior on Longecity about recovering from brain damage. It's a thread about MDMA-related damage, but his advice is quite general and is based on his own experience with recovering from multiple concussions.

Whew! Definitely wasn't planning to write that much, haha. Really hope I've been of some help man. Best of luck to you and your mom.

u/ijssvuur · 3 pointsr/ExMormonTea

With coffee, herbal teas, mate, and postum, you're going to be used to a much stronger flavor. Tea can be very subtle. If you drink it right after a cup of coffee or spicy/ strongly flavored food, you won't taste it.

It can also be made pretty weak, if you're using single serving loose leaf packets in a 12oz mug, it'll be pretty weak. Those are meant for closer to 6oz. Try adding a lot more tea. Add 4 times what you normally do, and steep it for the same amount of time you normally do (unless it's usually bitter, then do less). You can make it really strong if you just add more. I like to do that with a good Irish breakfast tea.

Also, explore flavored teas! Earl Grey, genmaicha, Lapsang Souchong, mint, and jasmine teas are some really good teas.

This jasmine tea has a great jasmine flavor, it's made with real jasmine instead of sprayed with oil or flavoring. It's also super cheap for pretty high quality tea.

Harney & Sons makes a good Lapsang Souchong. It's really smoky and tastes like a campfire, if you like strong drinks, you'll probably like it. It's very polarizing, though, some people love it and some people hate it.

Taylor's has good Earl Grey, which is flavored with bergamot. It tastes like fruit loops. Fancy.

Rishi makes good mint tea. It's very forgiving, if you like mint, it'll cover up most flaws you'll find in tea. The flavors compliment each other very well.

Genmaicha is made with puffed brown rice. It tastes a little bit like popcorn, it's a little sweet because of the rice, and it can have a strong flavor.

Try other things with tea, too. An Arnold Palmer (half black tea, half lemonade) is great in the summer. A squeeze of lemon or lime juice in any tea totally changes the flavor.

u/saltyteabag · 3 pointsr/tea

If you mean this then yeah, it's a good solid starter tea, and most asian markets carry it. I still have a tin of it on my tea shelf.

On other news, the Thai iced tea mix I bought from amazon is on point. The recipe I used calls for 1 cup of the mix with 4 cups of water so if anyone is interested to try it it’s probably best to buy the 2 pack

u/Erin_ · 3 pointsr/keto

You should buy just thai tea, as in... just the tea. Like you were buying jasmine tea or something. Here's a link to the bag I bought:

u/hashtag_naptime · 3 pointsr/tea

For everyday, convenient "I-need-some-tea-in-me-stat" drinking I quite enjoy Costco's house brand green tea bags. It's actually Ito En tea, sold under the Kirkland name. 100 bags to a box, and if I recall it's about $15. Looks like this (Amazon link; though Costco is cheaper).

u/Redcat1991 · 3 pointsr/tea

the costco ito-en bagged sencha + matcha. it's like 100 bags for 10-15 bucks in a costco and on amazon it is almost 20.

u/Skrytex · 3 pointsr/Nootropics

I love Yerba mate and feel great after drinking it! With that said, I would look into Guayusa. While I do enjoy Yerba, I prefer Guayusa overall. I think the taste is slightly better, it has a certain natural sweetness to it. It is a cousin to Yerba and comes from a similar region, so its very comparable. The main reason I bring it up though is because you wanted to mix L-theanine with your Yerba. Unlike Yerba, Guayusa naturally has L-theanine in it. Honestly, Guayusa is probably my favorite beverage. If you were interested in trying it, this is my favorite brand

u/Fuck-Face · 3 pointsr/LucidDreaming

It has a lot of different names, but i'm sure this is it. Found it under the name Guayusa on Amazon.

u/dont_wear_a_C · 3 pointsr/CasualConversation

Not OP, but I used to drink generic, regular coffee with 2 creams, 2 sugars. After trying "better" coffee and playing around with the Keurig at work, you begin to appreciate the actual blends and boldness of coffees, whereas adding creamer and sugar actually ruined the taste(s) for me. Aka different blends, stronger roasts, etc etc.

Right now, my favorite coffee is San Francisco Bay Fog Chaser and it's delicious!

u/flanl · 3 pointsr/technology

$29.75 for 80 San Francisco Bay Fog Chaser cups is tough to beat.

It's good stuff for Keurig coffee, and the cups are 97% biodegradable, so you don't have to feel like a schmuck for wasting a shit ton of plastic.

u/RufussSewell · 3 pointsr/twinpeaks

But they make it conveniently!

Have you tried the San Francisco Bay Fog Chaser? It's actually really good. The mesh bottom helps I think. And relatively inexpensive.

Is this the one you like?

I read reviews and some folks said they had changed their formula recently, so wanted to ask before ordering some.

u/ChanningKratom · 2 pointsr/kratom

I saw Kava at my local grocery store Ralphs. can you believe it??? Is it the same stuff as you can get online ?? It's the Yogi brand.. u know, the one that produces all those herbal teas...

u/myworksafeaccount · 2 pointsr/tea

Tazo Rest is pretty good and will knock you out. Yogi Tea's Kava blend is pretty good too. Personally, I also do really like just straight chamomile, especially if it's loose leaf - tends to have more flavor than the bagged version. Mint is great as well - you can get dried mint, but fresh is great, too. I keep a mint plant in my apartment and occasionally make tea with a few freshly cut sprigs. (It also makes great mint juleps and mojitos...)

u/DaNReDaN · 2 pointsr/melbourne

You can in supermarkets in other countries.

As far as I have researched, it is relatively safe.

u/iNEED · 2 pointsr/tea

the orange tea tin that most (cheaper) chinese and vietnamese restaurants serve. check asian markets to see if the price is cheaper.

u/MaelinStarpyre · 2 pointsr/tea
u/ketovin · 2 pointsr/orangecounty

Loose leaf enthusiast here. Teavanna definitely has high quality leaves but you should check your options before you commit. Also - Teavanna(at least the one at South Coast) tries to push the sweet/mixed stuff too much - it's like showing off a steak with A1 sauce instead of letting customers try the delicious steak itself.

I highly recommend just buying tea in bulk on Amazon. If you're looknig for green, these are good : Link $14 for a 16oz bag will last you a very long time. Davidson's Gunpowder is cheap but robust and still delicious for its price.

If you want something with a more distinct flavor then go with Genmaicha. It goes great with food and is great to share with people because of its unique attributes: Link

If you're really keen on going to a store, a lot of the 'alternative' markets have loose leaf. Whole Foods has a pretty good selectoin of loose leaf - keep an eye out for the Rishi brand(Link), quality stuff. Make sure they sell it in loose form and not in the bagged/satchel form.

You can also use Yelp to find a local coffee/tea shop that offers loose leaf tea - they sometimes sell the leaves by itself. Link

Some shops I've personally been to that offers loose leaf tea : Zinc Café, Milk + Honey, Sweet Elle Cafe, Gypsy Den, & Kean Coffee.

Edit - I also recommend using Adagio Tea to buy tea. Great reviews and selection of tea. I have not bought from Tea Trekker but I did buy a book from them - great knowledge and selection of traditional tea from all around the world.

u/THRowawAYassist · 2 pointsr/OnlineGroceryDeals

I think this is a better deal kitchen soap wise: Instead of 12oz for 7 dollars, its 6 25oz bottles for 20 bucks. 3 times the money, but 12.5 times the soap. Also, for dishwasher detergent, this is a better deal: Instead of 20 count for 7$, it's 110 count for 20$.

Some stuff it just makes sense to try and get in bulk, because you get so, so, so much more.

Also, re milk. You don't have to get powdered milk. You also have the option to get UHT milk. UHT milk is milk that's been cooked at a high enough temperature that it becomes shelf stable. Just search for UHT milk and you'll find a tonne of brands and choices. Different fat percentages, sizes and so on. You can get a large carton, or they also make packs with a bunch of small cartons, like this one: I prefer that, because I don't use milk very often, so opening a small container each time works perfectly for me. You do however, have to stick the container in the fridge once you've opened it.

Also, if you have a tea strainer (or even if you don't, they're only a few bucks and worth it!), try and get loose leaf tea. You can get a lb of tea for around 10 bucks easy, and you can easily make a few hundred cups of tea. To make strong black tea, I use 4 grams of tea for every pot, and each pot gets me about 4 cups. A lb of tea is 453g, so...that works out really well. Even if you make individual cups instead of pots and use a couple grams per cup, you can easily get 200 cups out of a lb box. There's just no beating that with bags, even if you resuse them.

Here's 1lb of a green tea for 10 bucks: And here's 1lb of Earl Grey for 8 bucks:

Thanks OP! I'd already created list and was about to post to food_pantry when I saw your post and you'd found cheaper options for a few things and that seriously rocks.

u/kevingharvey · 2 pointsr/leangains

It's a typo. Should have said Thai tea. I corrected it. It's a delicious tea that I first tried at a Thai restaurant and on the menu it said 'Thai Tea'. At the restaurant, they add milk, but it's pretty amazing without it as well. A lot of caffeine. It's pretty much replaced coffee for me because it has a much better flavor. It tastes very nutty and smoky while also being very heavy and filling (like coffee, maybe better). Here's the brand I buy: Thai Iced Tea Traditional Restaurant Style,16 oz (1LB.)

u/thinsponeeded · 2 pointsr/proED

I actually started blending a Hibiscus Honey Lemon Tea and a green matcha tea together in my large liter water bottle, and it's amazing!

I also enjoy a classic Earl Grey with a bit of milk and sugar.

One of my faves is a Jujube/goji/longan berry blend. It's super common here in China, and sometimes hawthorn is included in it, too. It's naturally sweet, but adding a bit of rock sugar can be nice at times.

As for Chai, my favorite blend is Good Earth, but that was an older blend and I'm having trouble finding it online...

I generally dislike spicy teas but tried Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice at a hotel and liked it enough to buy a small tin. It has a serious spicy punch, so you might like it. It's available in bags and loose leaf. The bags I had at the hotel were a good quality and I did not feel cheated.

You already have a teapot and variable temp kettle so the initial expense is out of the way. Now you just need some tea to brew!

Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice

I do recommend you purchase direct from vendors if possible. My favorite vendors (and their styles)

Adagio - Fruity blends and beginners. Offers a wide range of types generally at mid grade quality

Harney & Sons - Chiefly western style brewed tea but has a vast catalogue of midrange teas and an extensive offering of tisanes (other plants brewed like tea)

What-cha High quality teas sourced from all over the world. At times inconsistent in lineup and availability but offers unique teas not found anywhere else

Yunnan Sourcing Essentially the one stop shop for Chinese tea. Offers a vast array of high quality teas sourced directly from the places that grow them. Great product but expansive and complex catalogue that is hard for a newbie to use

I love this teacup, my grandparents used to get up at 4:45am every morning and drink coffee from these cups. They were thrown out as worthless after they passed. Found one with the same pattern in a thrift store for a nickel and eyes got sweaty real fast.

So here is my teaporn.

What cracks me up, is this is what goes through the first flap in my carryon laptop bag (over 100 airport checkpoints) and not once have I been asked to open the bag, let alone what are all those leafy snack baggies doing in there. for anyone who doesn't understand why carryon, good tea can be expensive and/or hard to source on the road

It doesn't sound dumb because it has been done already by huge companies here and here.

High quality coffee is usually ground right before it is used as coffee becomes stale quickly. Some people say after 15 mins after being ground it starts to degrade. I can personal say that I don't like grinding my coffee the night before I use it. So any form of distribution network for pre-ground coffee won't be high quality.

Also things like the flavoring is going to be what will be different about your product but that as well is a market that bigger players are already in. Coffee mate(owned by nestle) is every where in grocery stores and comes in 20+ flavours already and coming in both liquid and powder form. It also doubles as creamer. Which is a bonus as most people buying your product probably won't like the biter taste. Your examples of flavours pumpkin spice, French vanilla, they don't have a Amaretto flavour but they do have Hazelnut. You get the point it is going to be a uphill battle to compete on flavours.

Another thing quality coffee is not artificially flavoured but rather it has to do with the bean itself. Coffee doesn't taste like pumpkin spice normally.

The business idea had a good start you saw a need and you tried to fill it. Next time think about barrier to entry to the business and do some research on players already in the field.

As for your brother get him a french press and a blade grinder plus a kettle. If he can buy freshly roasted coffee it will be the easiest and best cup of coffee he has ever had. I used a coffee machine and pre-ground coffee in first year in my dorm and it was great.

That's peculiar. I never came across bottled unflavoured Lipton Iced Tea; it has always been either Peach or Lemon flavoured.

Your other options could be to try out the tea bag variety and see if you can make some of your own; this is the particular one I found by Lipton.

Then there is the powdered variety, which I would suggest you avoid like the plague.

I am a huge fan of sweet tea. There is literally NOTHING like it here. Pureleaf and goldpeak are fine and all, but they insist on only selling the fruit flavored kinds in Canada. Why can't we have tea flavoured tea?!

+1 for Guayusa, though I've only had Runa's version. I bought it for the cheap price and favorable Amazon reviews, but Runa claims it has ~90mg caffeine per cup (on par with coffee). I don't feel particularly buzzed with it, so YMMV, but I'm not very sensitive to caffeine anyway.

The taste took some getting used to. Like canadasmith said, it's not actually tea, so I shouldn't be surprised that it doesn't taste the same as orange pekoe or english breakfast. It seemed more "grassy", like some green teas.

u/Vulpyne · 2 pointsr/Nootropics

Its only $20 for a bag. Its same family as Yerba Mate but better in my eyes because it dont have that nasty taste Yerba mate has.

You will never regret it, I reccomand it to everyone. And everyone who tried it fell in love with it. Plus you supporting Amazon jungles poor tribes since thats where it comes from.

This is also great to during T breaks from krarom. Just brew it and make it stronger.

I personally like Death Wish Coffee since it gives me a kick in the ass when I'm still feeling groggy after waking up. But it has a very high caffeine content (it claims to be the strongest coffee in the world) so it's not suitable if you have a higher caffeine sensitivity, i.e. it makes you jittery.

I also haven't tried making Death Wish Coffee in a cold brew method, and I imagine that the concentrate made from it would be very potent in terms of caffeine. Beware!

We buy them at Costco and my coffee snob DH enjoys them ;)

You can also get a reusable keurig filter and fill it with your own coffee. You just have to not overstuff it, and wash it of course!

u/tksdks · 2 pointsr/financialindependence

Consider the SF Bay Fog Chaser. It's the best kcup I found where the taste isn't so compromising, and is (supposedly) environmentally friendly!

u/RBXChas · 2 pointsr/keto

I used the reusable K-cup thingie in my home Keurig, and it never worked right after that (we ended up replacing it shortly thereafter). I thought it was just bad timing, so I used it in our office one, and we had to buy a new office one then, too. I don't know why, but I had terrible luck with those.

I buy San Francisco Bay K-cups. I first saw them at Costco (which no longer sells them), loved them, and kept buying through Amazon. They are working towards 100% biodegradable packaging. Their K-cups don't have plastic on the bottom (just a plastic ring), and the bags that hold the K-cups I believe are compostable. My favorite flavors are Fog Chaser and French Roast:

u/Waja_Wabit · 2 pointsr/todayilearned

FYI, you can buy delicious, cheap, completely biodegradable k cups on Amazon. There are also plenty of recyclable brands out there as well.

u/z64dan · 2 pointsr/Austin

That sounds about right for k-cups. That's about 75 cents per cup.

I usually pay between .50 and .60 when I buy k-cups.

You can get them for as cheap as 36 cents each on amazon

Of course, it's still more expensive than grinding and brewing your own coffee (which you can also do anyway with reusable K-Cups), but the convenience factor is what you're paying for.

u/fireline12 · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Get your K-Cups from Amazon, you can get them pretty cheap and in bulk. Personally I like San Francisco Bay Coffee's Fog Chaser blend. Nice bold cup, plus it's fair trade and the k-cup is biodegradable.

You lucky duck.

I can't be too jealous because I also found a Kuerig at my local Goodwill. It was 12 bucks and pretty much brand new. I think it's the Keurig B40 which only has two cup sizes, which is annoying since they're both small...

The one thing that bugs me about these machines is the fact that they produce so much waste. I ended up getting these K-cups because not only were they the best deal, but they are also bio-degradable. Not only that, it's actually damn good coffee:

For my thai tea I use this

No need for the evaporated milk, I just brew then pour over ice. Top with HWC and a liquid sugar free sweetener. One cup will come out to be 4.5 grams of net carb. Could be less depending on how much tea you brew. :) In my opinion this tea taste much better than black tea.

u/gamgeestar · 2 pointsr/Cooking

I add this tea mixture to water (1 cup of tea mixture to 4 cups of water, plus 3/4 cup sugar if you like it sweeter) in a French press. Let it steep for 30-60 minutes (the longer you let it steep, the stronger the flavor). I "press" out the tea leaves, then put the mixture in the fridge to let it cool. Add half & half (or basically any kind of milk you want--coconut milk is also good) until it's the color you want. Delicious and saves me lots of money to make it at home!

u/MrsTruce · 2 pointsr/indianapolis

u/3000Flurbos · 1 pointr/bjj

If you're struggling to get 8 hours a night, you can focus on deepening the sleep you do get instead of sleeping longer.

  • Black out your room at night. This is the biggest one for me. I have cheap blackout shades and I use electrical tape to cover internet routers, smoke alarms - anything that flashes. Get your room dark enough that you can't see your hand in front of your face. Even a little light will fuck with your melatonin production and compromise your sleep quality.

  • If you use electronics at night, download f.lux. It's a free program that removes blue light from your monitor after the sun sets. Your phone should have night mode under settings; turn that on as well. Light in the blue spectrum is the biggest melatonin disruptor.

  • Take 400 mg of magnesium citrate or magnesium glycinate before bed. It eases stress and causes a dramatic increase in sleep quality. Plus, a good percentage of the population is deficient in magnesium, so you could probably use a little extra anyway. If you go for magnesium citrate, start at 200 mg and move up to 400 mg over the course of a couple days. Too much at once will make you shit your pants. Glycinate doesn't have that issue, but isn't quite as bioavailable.

  • Take 300 mcg of melatonin right before bed. Melatonin is a hormone your body uses to encourage deep sleep, and taking it in pill form will knock you right out. It's prescription in the UK, over-the-counter in the US. Most doses are far too high (2-10 mg), and can impair your natural melatonin production if you take them regularly without a break. Stick with 300mcg (linked above); it's the minimum effective dose and won't mess with your hormones long-term.

  • I also drink kava tea on nights when I really can't sleep. It's more for stress relief/anxiety than for sleep, but if you find you have trouble winding down at night it can be a big help. Don't drink alcohol alongside kava; the active compounds, kavalactones, bind to the same brain receptors that alcohol does, meaning the effects of the two stack.

  • Don't take sleeping pills if you can avoid them. I'm not a doctor, and I'm not saying you should ignore your doctor, but sleeping pills don't actually put you into stage 3 and stage 4 sleep (the deep, restorative sleep your brain needs). They can also cause a lot of neurological side effects.

The counselor at the crisis center suggested the tea and it is a miracle. If you are running out of hope like I was, just give it a try. It has relaxed me as much as weed did. Except you don't turn into a zombie like with weed. DONT GIVE UP. The anxiety is coming from your own thoughts. You WILL get though this and we are all here to help.

Welcome to America, a land where you can choose whatever you want in the store as well as grow practically any food source in your back yard.

That sucks you don't like sucralose, it along with aspartame has helped millions of diabetic people able to taste something sweet on a regular basis without messing with their blood sugar. Aspartame is the most medically tested food chemical on the planet and has no side effects (except for diarrhea, upset stomach, and some other problems when ingested in extreme quantities - you'd have to be on an intravenous line of that stuff to get such a dosage.

Look, I'm not a huge fan of sucralose either, but to get sick off of it I'd have to completely replace my sugar intake with the stuff.

The reason we have large corporations providing food-stuffs for so many people is because there's money in it and they do a good job at it. People wouldn't buy stuff if it was toxic, heck, I stay away from brands if I didn't like the way I felt after eating it. The fact is food is full of chemicals, chemicals that are extremely awesome. Chemicals are everywhere, in fact I'd dare to say everything is a chemical, if a food says it's chemical free, it'd be lying since it has a chemical makeup, heck water is dihydrogen monoxide, salt is sodium chloride, baking soda is something something carbonate (sodium bicarbonate, ah I'm too tired to think about it).

It's not a perfect world, but if you live in America, you live in a country where you have a gazillion options, you can shop at trader joes, walmart, aldi, kroger, etc. There are tons of people who want to sell you exactly what you want at a quality and price that is absolutely incredible. That's why trader joes exists, without corporations, how would you get foodstuffs that you preferred, you'd only have limited options from "government sources".

Believe me, I've been to China, the food is cheap and it's mostly grown in peoples back yard, but when you're driving along and people are burning batteries next to their "farm" it makes you a bit weary about where your food is coming from.

The only suggestion I have is to avoid anything "diet" since it has artificial sweetener, and get yourself some delicious tea, try this: I'm still going through my Chinese tea, but I hear this stuff is pretty good, plus they're "organic" which means the chinese tea farm "claims" they are. Ha-ha. It's still delicious regardless, just rinse off the tea with a bit of cold water right before you steep it.

Oh and if you're looking for tea that is extremely good for you, but tastes really weird, check out this: it has a strangely sweet taste, like a grainy sweet taste. It's apparently good for the skin and what-not. I'm not a fan of it, but it is super good for you. (Cleared up some foot fungus and skin condition for someone I know. They tried all sorts of organic cures, but this was the only one that worked)

So chill a bit and relax. Why not head over to a random store and pick up some nectarines, I bought 7 for $1.50 at Aldi, I'm sure they're probably GMO, but they are insanely delicious, crisp, affordable, and guaranteed safe to eat, otherwise the company would get sued to oblivion.

Edit: Sorry for the long writeup, but I'm a bit tired at the moment.

Teabags are more expensive and more time consuming than loose leaf tea. If you like green tea, here's what I'd recommend.

Buy one of these and a bag of this. Fill the kettle with cold water, turn the knob to the middle of the grey area, hit the button to start it and put in about a palm full of green tea pellets. Wait, pour, drink.

The kettle ought to last a while, and the tea will last you at least four months of heavy use.

Also, don't forget to smell the bag of green tea just as you open it. Worth the 13 bucks alone, it smells so good.

Coffee is best if you grind and brew it fresh. An Aeropress, a burr grinder, and a decent bean will make an amazing cup of coffee.

Tea is best if you use loose leaf tea. Buy a single-cup, basket-style, tea strainer and some tea. I'd suggest Gunpowder Green Tea to start.

I hate bags, but one of the better bagged greens from a grocery store I've had is Costco's Kirkland Green tea with sencha and matcha. It is by Ito En, which is a good tea seller that does matcha/greens pretty good. FYI, this has matcha so the caffeine will be high.

If you don't have a costco, you can buy online.

If you can find Harney & Sons in store, they have good teas too and come in bagged form.

edit: since you are new. Refer to the side bar for temperatures. Green tea needs to be done at a lower temperature or it'll be a bitter mess.

u/HORSEtheGAME · 1 pointr/tea

I'm probably not as much of a tea expert as the rest of the guys and gals here but I have this green matcha tea I bought from costco and it tastes good enough to me.

Comes in a huge package of 100 and isn't too expensive at about ~$0.20/bag.

This is tea with matcha however. I'm not sure if that is the same as just matcha.

u/consorts · 1 pointr/tea

why drink tea if you can't stand it? i like coffee a lot, i just prefer ice cold tea.

while others may post exotic tea ideas, i'll stick with the tried and true just to get you started;



it's ok to garnish your tea with citrus juice or milk, sweeten with sugars or honey.

variety packs are fun to sample, just keep in mind they may not be different teas,

just various fruits|spices used to flavor them, kinda like flavored coffee creamers.

u/stonecats · 1 pointr/tea
u/douglasrain · 1 pointr/Nootropics

Hmm, I guess I need to give it a try. Any specific brand you'd recommend? I noticed this was the best reviewed brand on Amazon:

u/JK7ray · 1 pointr/teaexchange

Hello again! Got your PM. Would you like to try any or all of these teas? I can pack small quantities (such as 10-15g samples) or larger amounts, whatever is your preference.

u/MsZombiePuncher · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Oh I got this!

  • Harney and Sons has tons of Loose Leaf Tea on Amazon. Personally I suggest the Paris and the Hot Cinnamon Spice. Alternatively they have a sampler. Harney and Sons makes really excellent tea.
  • Tea Forte also has a sampler, but honestly it's not as cost effect, but it'd be great for trying different types.
  • You can also buy some Twinings Loose Leaf tea on Amazon. My personal favorites are Lady Earl Grey, and the Darjeeling.

    (Note, all of these will last you a good bit, especially if you get more than one)

    Also, I know this is a Amazon heavy site, but I also want to suggest Adagio. They have A LOT of tea for really good prices, and you can actually get samplers of any tea for really cheap. I love just get a boatload of samplers. Each sampler contains around 10 cups of tea so that's also a great deal in itself. They have an entire page of sampler collections. I specifically want to suggest the Chai Tea Sampler, the Herbal tea Orchard Sampler, the Oolong Tea Orchard Sampler and the Green Tea Sampler. You also can't go wrong with just going around the site and picking and choosing, although you do save a few bucks with a sampler pack. They also like to just throw samples at you while you're checking out.

    If you find you want to get something on Adagio, I have a 5 dollar off coupon I can give you.
u/atechnicnate · 1 pointr/tea

I like the Harney and Son's Hot Cinnamon Spice It has a tad of a 'bite' to it but it's spicy and smooth. I find it very relaxing.

They do make them, but the kinda suck. All the bad quality of stale pre-ground coffee and you can only fit a couple grams of beans inside the bag. That said, in a pinch they are quick and simple to use.

These single use pour over filters are a better option if you can get fresh coffee.

u/raxs22 · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

You can brew coffee like this just fine, in fact you can buy it this way.

However, coffee tends to be picky about it's extraction temperature and the amount of time the grinds spend exposed to water is pretty sensitive. Unlike Tea which tends to just get stronger as the steeping time increases, over extraction with coffee turns your delicious cup of joe into a bitter tincture of sadness.

Here's some reference on making good coffee

u/gordonp · 1 pointr/todayilearned

Here's one example

u/fuckyeahjake · 1 pointr/tea

you want an orange pekoe. i lived in ireland for a while and i can't remember who, if anyone, makes an orange pekoe there. bewley's gold label might work? you also might be able to find some lipton in an asian grocery...yellow label maybe? i had my family bring over some of this stuff when they visited me, but it's waaaay more expensive (like £1 per tea bag) on

of course, you could always branch out and get some nice herbal teas, and use those. i've made some really nice pomegranite iced tea, mint iced tea, and iced green tea ain't bad either imho. it might not be what you're used to, but it's sure tasty. you could even try making iced irish breakfast for shits and giggles, but you might get a surprise visit from the ira for that one.

u/unicorn_factory · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

ice tea and a ice tea maker . This is the best thing you could ever do for yourself. I lost some easy wight by cutting out soda and store bought teas and juices by switching over to iced tea. If you don't like drinking water like I do tea is a great alternative, no calories, no artificial crap, it's just naturally flavored water.

u/ArmyCoreEOD · 1 pointr/AskReddit

What about just mixing in espresso powder? Flavor, caffeine, basically no extra calories?

u/doctor_robocop · 1 pointr/food

I wish I was a wizard! I just started experimenting by always making a second batch and adding different things. Oh, I forgot to say with the tiramisu-type ones: add a dash of almond extract.

Some things I've found to be good in 'mallows:

Dehydrated berries, crushed into powder.

Peppermint extract (with or without adding cocoa powder)

Instant espresso

Vanilla bean paste - this has become my standby recipe, sometimes dusted with crushed candy canes.

*Matcha, though I'm still trying to get the balance right for that nice, creamy green tea flavor.

Your marshmallows look gorgeous, by the way!

u/xanderbitme · 1 pointr/Kefir

1 - There's really no need to rinse. Swishing the cage and grains around in the milk of a new batch should be sufficient.

2 - If it works for you, there's nothing wrong with it. I like it to ferment 24 hours, that way I only have to take care of it once a day, and so I don't overproduce and waste milk. Simply reduce the amount of grains you're using for it to take longer.

3 - I'm also on a ketogenic diet. There's really no way of knowing the carbohydrate content of homemade kefir, so I calculate it the same as commercially-produced kefir, about 6g carbs per 1/2 cup (118 ml).

Once I see pockets of whey in the curd (before it becomes fully separated), I remove the grains and let it continue to ferment (secondary fermentation) another 24 hours. At that point it's usually separated, so I just stir it together and refrigerate it. I figure this way I'm reducing the carb content as much as possible. I also only drink 1/2 a cup of kefir a day (1/4 cup morning and night)... I make it in a 2 oz instant espresso jar.

u/ninkatada · 1 pointr/Baking

No, it's a different thing. Here it is: instant expresso powder

When I make my chocolate cake, I mix cocoa powder and instant expresso powder in a bowl and then add boiling water and mix. Then I let it cool and add buttermilk and vanilla extract and those are my wet ingredients (that I then mix with the butter, sugar, eggs, and dry ingredients).

u/shom34 · 1 pointr/tea

While not a true Camellia Sinensis, guayusa is a great caffeinated holly tea native to Ecuador with natural sweetness. You can check it out here and here. Yaupon holly, a sister plant to guayusa, is also a naturally sweet caffeinated holly native to Southeast North America.

u/Sparke28 · 1 pointr/tea

Anyone that likes Mate should also give guayusa a try. Personally I like how mate feels but not the way it tastes. Guayusa feels very similar but it tastes amazing. I believe they are very similar plants but guayusa is not at all bitter.

u/Elijah_Baley_ · 1 pointr/tea

You can buy it from Amazon or Harney and Sons.

A little more information.

u/gonewiththeblues · 1 pointr/StackAdvice

Yes!! I completely agree. Just started drinking this stuff in the morning: and surprisingly I have really quickly cut my caffeine consumption down to 1-2 teas a day instead of 200-400mg caffeine. Really digging it.

Also in regards to Lions Mane, I have looked into that and would like to try it but have held off since mushroom powders are so expensive (and it feels very important to me to get organic, quality powder). Currently planning on switching to this stuff once my reishi runs out .

u/TheBossAwill · 1 pointr/Kombucha

u/redivulpis · 1 pointr/AeroPress

I agree on the body weight thing, helps quite a bit. Lately I've been using pre-ground (Deathwish). I don't have a grinder yet since I'm kinda between living situations (live with parents, very little room for my stuff as it is). But once I have more space I'll be moving on to whole-bean, fresh-grind.

u/bennybrew42 · 1 pointr/todayilearned

So 1 pound of deathwish is $19.99. You'd bet you would save money buying in bulk, like say two pounds. ^(Nope it's $86.74)

5 pounds is $80.00

The resin that green mountain uses in their cartridges isn't recyclable or biodegradable.

These are and they're a lot cheaper. If you use a keurig 2.0 you may need a clip to bypass the DRM.

u/Ls1CowboyZ · 1 pointr/Coffee

If you want to go keurig again (I know you are looking for alternatives) look into these cups The fog chaser and breakfast blend are pretty good. They are cheaper and there is less plastic waste. That or get the brew basket that you can use your own grind in. I do a combo of the two.

u/coinbank · 1 pointr/technology

Yea they did. I got a mesh k cup with my keurig as a gift and it won't brew. That was actually the reason I wanted one. Now it barely gets used. I did find some degradeable cups They send you a thin plastic container with the order to store the cups in. They come in biodegradable bags as well. Plus the coffee is pretty good 8)

You can buy recyclable ones.

I just bought these for the first time since I'm sick of cleaning the reusable and refillable cups. They're cheap and better for the environment, but I bought the Keurig for convenience. So what I just bought is good. Supposedly only the foil lid isn't compassable.

u/kehendrix · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Not entering this contest but I still want to add my suggestions for your birthday gift.

It's all about atmosphere and ambiance. Creating a serene environment conducive to relaxation and reflection. It seems that you are a working mom, a wife and probably wear many more stressful hats in your life. That being said, picture this: dinner is cooked, little one's in bed the house is quiet and there you are in your favorite cozy spot wrapped with this Purple Plush Throw. Your cozy spot is lined with this super duper massage cushion and your feet resting on this shiatsu massager encased in these fluffy purple socks. On a nearby table you have the soothing aromatic scent of lavender emitting from this diffuser. Relaxed and soothed you find that you are a bit restless despite all your efforts, so out comes the coloring book. Using your 50 count pack of colors you sit and color for a while in blissful peace. Unwinding for a few moments and allowing the hustle and bustle of the day to pass away. Maybe you even indulge a bit with a cup of tea as you nosh on these delicious butter cookies. After your relaxing massages, your coloring session and bedtime snack, it is time to slip off to bed.

This is what I would give to you: the gift of moments spent each day exclusively designed to recharge, relax and refocus before the new day dawns. The day dawns and you are refreshed and ready to tackle all that may come.

u/Harrison_Keillor · 1 pointr/leaves

I suffer horribly from insomnia every time I have "quit". I use Sleepytime Extra. It has valerian in it which is usually understood to help people fall asleep a little faster and stay asleep. It's not like taking an Ambien, it won't knock you out, but it's helped me through the tough four or five nights of brutal insomnia before my natural rhythm kicks back in. You might want to give it a try. I don't have much for the rest of your side effects, but I do know the sweaty palms is your body's way of getting rid of the THC and other cannabis related toxins stored in your fat. I'm sure it smells bad, too. Afaik, there's nothing you can do for that, besides wear gloves, but it's an important step and a good sign.

Keep it up. Withdrawl sucks, but it only lasts or week or so.

u/PM_me_ur_launch_code · 1 pointr/AskMen

I had to work at 4 am for a month which meant waking up at 3. Which also meant having to go to bed somewhat early when my sleeping schedule was usually much later.

I bought some tea called Sleepy time tea and just drink that right before or even in bed and I would be out in no time. Plus it's all herbal.

Now I just meditate before bed and that gets me good and tired.

u/crumpledlife · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Sleepytime is my favorite tea. If you're lucky, you can even find Sleepytime Extra that includes Valerian Root. It helps with pain and relaxation so it gives that extra boost to sleep.

u/etwcomp · 1 pointr/tea

Any bedtime tea that has valerian as an ingredient. Valerian is no joke, one or two cups should do it. I once made a whole pot, as I do with other herbal teas, and ended up stumbling to bed. Here are some good teas that include it as an ingredient:

-Republic of Tea Get Some Zzz's:
-David's Tea Mother's Little Helper:
-Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Extra: (got mine at Wal-Mart)

u/hyrulerho · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

u/figsandmangos · 1 pointr/ketorecipes

i just ordered this matcha tea:
I'm gonna make ice cream with it! :D

u/Dreizo · 1 pointr/soylent

I ended up getting this stuff

Honestly tastes so fucking good, i mix a teaspoon of it with my Ketosoy daily and got my immersion blender, tastes heavenly now to a point where i have to control my drinking habits. I've found that if i save my last bottle to the point where i chug it before bed, i sleep a lot better vs. The issue i've had of not being able to sleep properly for the past 3 days since starting Keto because i'm hungry all night. I had ginger chicken the first night so i wouldn't count it as keto. The second night i ate one brownie with 16g of net carbs as well as a dozen fish balls 0g carbs. Last night i survived with nothing, today i've been awake for 8 hours and, now that i'm thinking of it, will be having my 2nd meal. It's my birthday though, so i might end up having steak for dinner tonight.

TLDR; I now mix my ketosoy with 9 drops of Sucralose, a teaspoon of matcha and blended w/ an immersion blender + kept in the fridge hours before i plan to drink it. Has made a significant difference.

I'm also planning on splitting my meals, so instead of 3 per day i'll have 6. (More water in the mix, so quantity wise it's the same). I'm also getting Keto Chow when i'm back in Jan, for now though, i've ordered a second batch of Ketosoy which I'm not sure will show up before my flight on the 15th.

u/90sRnBMakesMeHappy · 1 pointr/tea

u/autemox · 1 pointr/loseit

Great snack that can replace cravings for smoothies, shakes, icees, slurpees. I avoid boba shops because they are inconsistent, cost too much, and don't display calorie content (or contain too many calories).

Buy thai tea mix and a tea pot. The tea only takes a few minutes to make but should sit in freezer or fridge for 30~ minutes to cool before adding ice and drinking. Other teas work too. Most teas are 0 calories. I freeze some tea into icecube tray so that I don't have to wait for tea to cool as long. You can also make a big batch of tea and save in fridge if you want.

Boba can be made by hand or boiled from hard (30-60 minutes) or boiled from soft (5 minutes). It is about 80 calories for 1/4 cup.

I use artificial sweeteners and artificial creamers to make the tea sweet and creamy without adding many calories. Make sure to soak the boba in hot sugar water to get them nice and sweet before adding them to your (less sweet) tea. I usually use nut pods or some sort of creamer that has some calories, adding 50-120 more calories to the boba, but you can stick to zero calorie creamers if you want. I hear Stevia is the healthiest zero calorie sweetener, by the way.

Because you want your tea to cool and your hard boba to boil it takes 30 minutes to make but you aren't in the kitchen the whole time. When I get a craving I will start the boba tea and during the 30 minutes I wait. Most of my food cravings pass easily during this time as I know I am about to drink boba. I find it to be very filling by the time I am able to drink it. I find that this is something of a strategy in itself... Having to wait 30 minutes for my snack helps the cravings pass and the snack feels more filling.

u/flrancid · 1 pointr/ketorecipes

All you need is that special thai tea mix..

You're right, not sure why you're getting downvoted. AmantisAsoko literally just copied what Wikipedia says which it clearly says may include (which most of the time it doesn't).

I drink Thai Tea all the time. It's extremely easy. I usually get Police Dog brand (what's available at my local asian grocery stores) and add in condensed milk and ice. This is what every Thai restaurant I've ever been to does and what most Thai recipes will tell you.
Ingredients: Tea, food coloring.

u/unicornsprinklepoop · 1 pointr/keto

Yeah sure! It's a few ounces of milk, an emulsifier (it's called 'base', it makes the texture smooth and it basically has the texture of maple syrup), simple syrup, matcha (sbux matcha is literally half sugar just so you know), ice and whipped cream.

I haven't tried playing around with making something similar to a frappucino at home yet since I haven't gotten around to buying a blender, but I feel like you could probably do something along the lines of this, based on a grande amount...

  • 16 ounce cup size scoop of ice

  • 4 oz of heavy cream or half and half

  • About 3 tbsp of matcha, like this

  • A scoop or two of nonflavored or any neutral flavor (maybe vanilla?) protein powder to make it smoother.

  • Splenda or some stevia drops to taste. If using splenda then 3-4 packets might work? Totally depends on how sweet you want it though!

  • Maybe some unsweetened almond milk to add in if you blend it and the texture seems a little too thick.

  • Homemade whipped cream with stevia/splenda and a little vanilla extract

    Like I said I haven't done anything like this before, but if you try it let me know because I'd like to hear how it worked out!
u/Redfox504 · 1 pointr/IAmA

We can usually sell the vanilla, caramel and other syurps. But stuff like the white mocha, dark mocha and matcha are just for starbucks and we can't sell it.

Tevana would be the best place to get your match powder(the green powder) stuff. I know matcha (ground up tea leaves) is awesome for you. But remember we do mix ours with sugar so be care what you add to when you order it.

now that's just the powder. Its a good brand but you have to sweeten it to your liking....

u/ApparentlyAnApostate · 1 pointr/ExMormonTea

I've been drinking this matcha over the last couple of days:

I add a tsp to a thermos of hot water and shake it up. Even though it's culinary grade, it mixes fine. Most people probably won't enjoy the grassy taste, but I don't mind it.

As far as how it makes me feel, it's not as stimulating as coffee and really not too calming. It's overall more mild than expected. The Rev Up (black, green, oolong tea mix) from Teavana provides more of what I'm looking for. This matcha was really cheap though, so maybe I'll try a different brand later.

Edit: nm this matcha is pretty damn good in the mornings.
