It's tea for me, thanks

It's my favorite. When I was about 12 I discovered the joy of Earl Grey tea and have loved it ever since. It's comforting, does not make me jittery, and if it's decaf it helps me get close to drinking the fluids doctors say you should every day.

Did you know that there is a Tea Appreciation Society? Indeed there is, and they offer any number of trinkets for the tea lover in your life. For Valentine's Day, they are promoting memberships in the organization that come with a certificate, a tea bag, a note book and some other tea worthy trinkets.

Speaking of tea, isn't it about tea time already?

"Thank God for tea! What would the world do without tea! How did it exist? I am glad I was not born before tea."

- William Gladstone, British Prime Minister.

I will have a good old cup of joe here and there - but tea is my staple drink.

Oh good. No threat to my Columbian, then! ;-)

Daniel's favorite is Earl Grey. I love regular Lipton's, Chai, and Constant Comment. Oh, tea... I just absolutely love it.
