Tea Leaves

photo-1I am giving up coffee. That statement alone scares me. I am taking up tea. Replacing my morning cup of joe with a cup of tea, leaves me wondering-what the heck? It happened while I was nursing some sort of flu and the only remedy was a cup of soothing and mellow tea. Coffee would just get me going and I wanted the citrusy and berry flavors of tea to calm me. Of late, I picked up some boxes of green and oolong tea to make it almost official. I also converted a cigar box that I found for $2.00 (sans the cigars) into a tea caddy-seriously.

Perhaps my taste buds are changing, but mostly the taste of coffee feels a bit thick. Anyone else have that feeling? But here’s the thing, I can drink tea anytime of the day and not feel like I will be up half the night. Or I can make a cup at 3:00 in the morning and be okay to go back to bed! I do have those chamomile kind of tea leaves so the caffeine is not there to jolt me awake.

But mostly I used them for that-entertaining. I even have a set of postcards bound in a book of tea cups called “Art in a Cup-Cups and Saucers 1860-1950.” It’s time to resurrect the tea cups and put aside the coffee mugs. Maybe it’s not so odd or scary that I am drinking tea after-all.

Now to find the perfect tea sandwich or scone to go with my afternoon cup of tea.

Good Day all!

  1. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being ripped off? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    I love tea. I don’t think you will be disappointed. I like quality loose tea better than those paper packaged bags. It seems to me that they are more flavorful, and I too enjoy the variety of floral and fruit teas available. Also, don’t forget to try rooibos if you have not already!

    I now know what it feels like to feel the proverbial earth shift on it’s axis. My good friend, aka the queen of coffee, is giving it up? I agree with you that coffee can be thick and actually, uninteresting. I think at this point I drink more out of habit than true enjoyment. There are so many varieties of teas, and so many medicinal and health benefits, that it is an intriguing world to explore. Thanks for a very fun and interesting post! Let’s meet for a cup of tea sometime soon! em
