I’ve always been a tea drinker. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t drink tea. Growing up, my best friend and I frequently had tea parties. In college, my hot pot was constantly heating water and tea kept me warm and awake.
I used to drink coffee occasionally too, but I realized this summer that I really don’t feel great when I drink coffee. I haven’t had any since. And that’s fine with me. Seems like tea is a lot more interesting anyway.
Tea would also make a great Christmas present!
I still haven’t tried kombucha tea (and don’t really feel driven to do so), but the NY Times has an interesting piece on Beyond Kombucha, one of the bottled kombucha companies.
Julie has a great idea for sharing your favorite teas as Christmas presents.
CBS Sunday Morning has a great little piece about the culture of tea.
My favorite teas:
It’s no secret that I love Harney and Sons Tea. My in-laws introduced it to be a few years ago and I’ve been a fan ever since. I especially love their tea room in Millerton, NY. They also just opened a store in SoHo!
Stash Tea is also pretty quality. If anyone finds me a box of Holiday Chai, I’ll love them forever. For some reason, its hard to come by around here.
A while back, I bought a sampler of loose rooibos tea from Adagio Teas. It’s lasted us a long time and its been fun having an assortment of flavors to choose from. They have really reasonable pricing, too.
What’s your favorite kind of tea?
Also, (unrelated) I’m loving this comic about a food blogger from So Good:
