Favorite Teas

Saturday, April 5, 2014


I am an avid tea drinker. My grandfather used to give me decaf tea when he watched me while my parents worked. I'd watch him carefully as he poured in his milk and sugar. I'd mime his actions, preparing my little mug the same way as his. This was the start of what would be my most stable relationship. I've loved tea ever since and don't plan on looking back.

In my dorm, I have a massive stack of tea boxes against the wall in the living room. I actually had to downsize because I had so many boxes and my Leaning Tower of Teas fell over one too many times. Nothing is better than a hot cup of tea and surfing the internet, besides a hot cup of tea while you lay next to a shirtless Harry Styles in bed. In all seriousness, I have, on average, about two cups a day. Days where I have no tea are sad days, indeed.

Since I drink tea so frequently, it's pretty easy to say that I have my favorites. I really like drinking Tazo's Awake English breakfast tea in the mornings because it gives me that extra jolt of caffeine. On the opposite end of the spectrum, I like drinking Celestial's Sleepytime Vanilla Chamomile tea before I go to bed. My favorite tea to drink with pastries or when I just want a cup out of the blue is Wegman's Cinnamon Spice black tea. It tastes like Trader Joe's Cinnamon Temptest tea, but it's more sweet. My last favorite tea is my favorite tea to make iced tea out of. Tazo's Passion Tea is the perfect tea to cool in the fridge. I like it best when it is mixed with lemonade, just like they do at Starbucks (and for a fraction of the price!)

Do you like tea as well? Or are you more of a coffee person? I like to think that I'm both, but I'm definitely more apt to get an iced coffee in the summer and a hot tea in the winter. Depends on the season, I suppose!
