Some people look forward to their morning cup of coffee, while others prefer a cup of green tea for a more gentle boost of energy.

There are pros and cons to each. With coffee, you have an array of roasts and types of beans to choose from, as well as, myriad methods you can employ to make the perfect cup. For example, do you prefer a pour-over coffee or an espresso? However, the downside of coffee is that it could cause some gastrointestinal discomfort. It may also cause you to become too jittery.

A cup of green tea, on the other hand, may give the slight boost of energy your body needs in the morning. The one pitfall is that it may not exactly satisfy your taste buds. But maybe that's because you're not adding the right fixings. Of course, the type of green tea you're using is also very important.

Maybe it's time to switch brands. Our suggestion? Try Buddha Teas Organic Sencha Green Tea for a high-quality cup of the herbal stuff—but without a hefty price tag. Next, try adding a little fresh ginger, a drizzle of honey, a lemon wedge, and maybe even a sprinkle of turmeric to your piping hot cup of tea.

Not only will these ingredients liven up your cup of green tea, but they may also help improve your digestion. Ginger, like turmeric, has anti-inflammatory properties, which can have medicinal effects on the body. It also can help reduce feelings of nausea and even help with treating chronic indigestion. Not to mention, ginger can help reduce the frequency of acid reflux, as it helps to prevent stomach acid from flowing back up into your esophagus.

Just don't overdo it on the honey, because remember, even though it's considered natural it's still an added sugar. Now that you know how to make your green tea taste better, check out This One Trick Maximizes Green Tea's Benefits, New Study Says.
