Everyday Tea

My cupboard held 9 boxes of tea a couple weeks ago. I had gone through a period of trying new types of tea but never finishing off boxes. So there was green tea, chai, caramel flavoured chai, berry tea, gingerbread tea, lemon tea, peach tea and some others I can’t remember. I had an oversupply of a drink I neglected in favour of coffee, my caffeinated beverage of choice.
So I decided to set a goal of drinking more tea and sticking with it until I had gotten down to a reasonable amount sitting in my cupboard. It seemed a wise choice, not just to reduce clutter, but because of the health benefits associated with tea (have I become a health nut?).
I started drinking mugs of tea (I tend to like large drinks, so I use a rootbeer mug for teas). I soon decided to make batches of iced teas using the flavours that would work well that way. It made it easier for me to bring tea with me to work and sped up the process of using up the boxes.
Now I’m drinking at least one mug of tea each day. I’m missing coffee some but drinking tea is becoming more and more a pleasant part of my daily routine. Now, though I’ll be searching out new flavours. What are your favourites?

This entry was written as part of my 43 Things goal to drink more tea. If you’d like to see more of my goals you can on the sidebar under Current Goals.

  1. My favourite tea flavours are..
    Forest fruit, Vanilla, Mando and Strawberry. I used to detest flavoured tea, but lately I've become addicted.

  5. I lost about 7 lbs by changing from coffee to tea. Well, your post reminded me of myself. For iced tea I make 2 types, 1 for myself & 1 for hubby. For myself its green tea/(my own blend of cinnamon, orange peel, cloves), for hubby it's green tea/decaf raspberry tea. For my hot tea I like to mix Hot Cinnamon Spice with Rooibos. Rooibos has many benefits like green tea.
    And you thought you were obsessed!!
