Let's Talk Tea

As many of you know, I'm going to San Francisco. Yay!

*Interesting side note - my cat is already inside of my suitcase. I made the mistake of taking it down the other day. She knows something is up.*

While I'm there I may get the chance to experiment with some tea. Now I know it may come as a shock to some of you, so you may want to sit down for this. I'm a southerner. Specifically a Texan. I don't remember ever drinking tea while it was hot. Doing that sort of thing as a child got your hands spatted by my grandma with a small lecture on patience.

Iced tea ruled my household, and it still does. I remember when my grandmother's house burned down that my little brother was helping to remove some of the salvageable items. The first thing he carried out was her iced tea pitcher. He thought it had magical powers I think :)

I grew up thinking Lipton was it. Give me a packet of sweetener and lemon (although I'd prefer lime) and I'm done. But I'm always up for experimentation and adventure.

So, what are some good teas to try? Green teas, black teas, organic teas. Oh. My. Why so many choices?

What is your tea of choice?

Have a great day everyone!

I love them all, well most of them. But I'd definitely try as many as you can. I like Chamomile, Green tea with some honey, and anything with mint.

Um...sweet iced tea...no lemon...I am not a fan of warm tea.

I like to drink Earl Grey tea. I’m more of a coffee person but like tea in the evening or when I’m sick.
