I’ve always been mildly aware of the latest trends, sometimes a trailblazer and sometimes years behind the rest. Tea is a drink which has always been a part of my life. A cup of tea after dinner over conversation with the family, a mug while snuggled up on the couch with a good book, some green tea with ginger to soothe a sore throat, and a lovely light grape white cup to share a heart-to-heart with a good friend. Tea has been in the periphery of my life and provided comfort and a sense of peace. However, I have only recently begun to indulge in the craze that tea has become over the past few years.
I’ve ventured into tea shoppes but felt too overwhelmed to participate. A few weeks ago I decided my time had come. I was ready. And so off I went to David’s Tea (I’m a sucker for the tins - Hey! They have an excellent marketing dept, what can I say).
$60 later and an arm-load of tea tins (plus a mug to-go) I was on my way.
And I fell deeper in love.
Interesting how a cuppa tea has been part of my life for so long (as long as I can remember actually), and now I am ready to dive in and untangle some of her layers and explore her more fully. I’ve ventured from the safety of my Tetley Orange Pekoe and am now discovering a whole new world of deliciousness.
Current favourites are Organic Strawberry White (so divine!), Genmaicha (so delish!) and Nepal (just so good!).
Today I shall venture for a detox tea - I’m considering David’s Detox or Skinny. Been having some GI issues and food intolerances so this week is devoted to cleaning up my system.
Bring on the fresh fruits and veggies!
