Are you a tea drinker? A coffee addict? I love the smell of coffee. When coffee is brewing, the aroma is so luxurious to me and my eyes tend to close and just drink it in with my senses. While I enjoy a cuppa every once in awhile, (and I love coffee ice cream!) I do prefer a cup of tea, 9 days out of 10.
I used to drink hot tea only with milk and sugar but about 2 years or so ago, the sugar bowl was empty or we were out of milk and I just drank it straight up. I've never gone back. Sometimes I do add a bit of honey or a slice of lemon depending if a sore throat is up to no good, but usually I don't add anything to it. Tea is a restorative. It is calming and can be rejuvenating when need be. It soothes a bad night and can calm an upset tummy. It nurses anxiety and keeps me company while I knit. Rarely does a day or night go by when I don't put on the kettle, it's a sweet routine that I cherish.
These are my current favorite teas:
What are yours? I'm always looking to try new ones.
