As someone who loves tea and has actually helped start an online tea company, I am constantly asked “what type of tea would you recommend?” I often find that a difficult question to answer. That’s a little unbelievable, right?
For the longest time, I've been an herbal tea only kind of girl. I try to limit caffeine, and if I’m going to actually go for the “lead” first thing in the morning, I’m going to get it from one really great cup of coffee. My tea time is generally in the afternoon or the evening, as I’m starting to wind my day down. And I love, love, love our Organic Comfort blend, or the fruity and sweet taste of our Harvest blend. Both of these tea really take me to a place where I can just let go and relax for a while.
But ok…what about those times when I don’t really need or want to relax…when I need a little boost to get going … an alternative to that morning cup a coffee. I’m telling you – Black Dragon Pearl is the current answer for me! Wow! So yummy, and so incredibly beautiful when you take the time to watch the buds unfurl. And the best part for me is that I get a great little boost of caffeine to start my day along with yummy notes of chocolate. Chocolate! I’m in!
Often, we find great comfort in our tried and true routines.
I’m not generally someone who ventures out of her comfort zone. And changing what you drink in the morning might not sound like a big deal to most--but for me…well, it’s kind of a big deal. But I'm finding that changing up my morning hot drink routine is turning out to be a lovely experience. Now I find myself looking forward to morning options, and I’ve committed to working my way slowly through all of our caffeinated teas. I’ll let you know how it works out, so stay tuned for lots of recommendations!
