@irimi1 good resolution! 🎉
@TQ Let’s see how long I can keep it up ^^" It’s not the first time I try.
@irimi1 It's somehow the only drinks I regularly drink. And coffee. Yeah. I never liked my beverage to taste sweet... Maybe a German thing. Or a weird thing, dunno. 😅
@irimi1 oh, just saw you're from Norddeutschland yourself, nevermind the German thing then. 😅
@TQ Hehe, yeah the Ostfriesen here like their tea pretty bitter, but that’s not really my kind of thing. I think I prefer green tea, actually? I haven’t tried too many varieties yet.
My specific problem with sodas though is probably the addictive effect of the contained sugar itself, not a preference for sweet drinks. It’s just one of my unhealthy mechanisms of dealing with unpleasant feelings.
@irimi1 In my experience, people just seep their green teas way too long. I like light and flowery green tea. If you want to try that, I'd buy some basic Sencha (a kind of Japanese green tea), use water that's only 80°C hot, and steep for just 20s. Enjoy, then reuse the same tea and steep again for 20s to 40s; repeat but steep for 40s to 60s, or something like that. Find out what you like, of course. But if you let it steep for 3min, it's going to be very bitter.
@jens Just like Genghis Khan intended…
