Two days ago I got that dreadful feeling that I was getting sick. With a heavy head and a decent night of sleep, I managed to get on my way to work with a steaming mug of tea. After a day full of trips to the microwave, and teabags piling up in the compost bin, my cold recessed as quickly as it had set in.
Besides being healthful and soothing, there are just so many teas out there to choose from. I toured our warehouse finding out some of the employee favorites, and learned a thing or two!
PG Tips is a British tea company with the cutest little sock monkey spokesperson; and specializes in rich, black tea. Marlene in processing says to try it with milk and honey! Yum!
On a similar note, Valerie in graphics reminisced about her aunt who brews a traditional English Breakfast tea, tossing in ground up lavender for a subtle aromatic flavor.
Mighty Leaf Tea has some of the most beautiful teas I’ve seen, and pictured above is one of their new Holiday Teas! The description states that “Holiday is a festive blend of Chinese black tea with cranberry, orange, papaya, apple, peach and spices.” Wow!
Another new holiday tea that was mentioned by KB and Sara in processing was this blend of peppermint and green teas from Trader Joe’s. I could definitely see decorating the X-mas tree with this one!
My personal morning picker-upper is the exotic Coconut Chai by Zhena’s Gypsy Tea. With a sublime blend of coconut flavor and a peppy black tea base, I will totally forget that coffee even exists.
With so many varieties, brands and rituals, what do you do for tea?
