What is a green tea shot?
A Jameson green tea shot is a delicious alcoholic drink (with zero health benefits - at least, that we're aware of!) made with high-quality Irish whiskey that contains no actual green tea.
This shot is not the healthiest drink as it contains no Yerba Mate or amino acids and it won't help boost antioxidants to reduce oxidative stress.
It also shouldn't be confused with Jello shots or matcha shots (with matcha powder) and it won't help with weight loss or improve your overall health.
But it is a refreshing drink you can enjoy with your friends!
