This morning I Tweeted that I had the horrible choice of deciding which tea to have. Some may have thought I had a measly three kinds of tea or a few tea bags laying around from which to choose from: Au contraire mon frére!
I have several types, kinds, flavors and brands. Adding to the confusion was a new “shipment” of Twinings tea that was delivered yesterday. Oh, the choices! What does one do?
Only teas I actually enjoy live in my house. Those I know I don’t care for, are usually given to other tea friends or put up-for-grabs at work. So, perhaps that makes the decisions even more difficult when I actually LIKE all of the teas I have.
Loose tea? Yes, I have that. Tea bags? Yes, I have those too. I prefer loose tea, but when I just want a quick, but GOOD ‘cuppa, I’ll reach for a tea bag.
I enjoyed a wonderful pot of Lapsang at a local tea cafe called Selah Tea Cafe. They serve you with your own tea-press and a simple sand-through-the-hourglass timer at your table. My personal preferences are teas WITHOUT milk and sugar. I like strong, dark teas.
However, a chai, some lemon teas, even some white teas have been known to enjoy a spot in my tea cupboards. And I also keep a good peppermint tea on hand for those after dinner teas to settle your stomach.
This is just a sampling of the teas I have in-house.
|Latest arrivals of a variety of Twinings Teas||Two wonderful blends from Capital Teas||Upton Tea has long been a favorite|
|Bigelow Tea is also a favorite||I think Bigelow’s Loose Earl Grey is the best in the world||A tin of Brodies Scottish Breakfast tea as well|
So, you can see why I had a tough decision to make!
