Tea Time


Growing up in the south, I exclusively drank sweet tea.  Classic bagged black tea with a mountain of sugar mixed in.   It wasn’t until I was in high school that I discovered other kinds of teas existed.  Loose leaf tea blew my mind.  

On a trip to the mall one day, I discovered Teavana, a loose leaf tea franchise that features stores all over the country.  There were so many types of tea: Oolong, black, blooming.   My whole world opened up. 

Since that initial discovery, my tea tastes have expanded tenfold.  I have at least 15 different types currently in my house and a cup of black lemon currently in my lap. Tea is one of the great comforts in life.   

I truly think that tea soothes the soul.  

Tired, sad, cold, excited, whatever.  There’s a tea for that.   I greatly look forward to the cold months when drinking tea brings a different kind of comfort. But for now, I’ll just bump up the air conditioner and sip.

  1. I’m addicted to tea (there are currently five boxes of different tea flavours next to me). I tend to drink it more in fall and winter but I LOVE tea with a passion.
