Tea for Two

I never used to be a huge hot tea drinker.  I love iced tea and sweet tea...but I just couldn't get behind hot tea.  Recently, I decided to try tea again...and I loved it!  I'm not a coffee drinker, but I love a hot beverage on a chilly morning.  Cup after cup of hot chocolate is not the healthiest way to go about that, but a mug of tea?  Perfect!

I bought the black tea variety pack from Twinings.  This box includes English Breakfast Tea, Irish Breakfast Tea, Earl Grey Tea, and Lady Grey Tea.  My favorites are Engish and Irish Breakfast.  The Bergamot oil in the Grey teas is an acquired taste, and although I liked a few sips of them, I couldn't stomach and entire mug.

How cute are these mugs?!

I prefer to take my tea with a splash of almond milk and a teaspoon of sugar.  Yum!

Are you team tea or tea coffee?


  1. I'm team coffee during the day but I do like chamomile tea at night!

  2. I'm definitely team coffee AND team tea! Sometimes coffee hits a spot that tea doesn't, sometimes I just feel like relaxing. (And then there are those days that I feel like a hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows.)

  3. I'm a massive tea drinker, iced, sweet but I especially love a good cup of hot tea (how typically British of me :P) - my favourite is English Breakfast, especially the one from Fortnum and Mason's - it's so delicious! I tried to get into other flavours of tea, I tried Earl Grey and felt the same for you, I was not a fan! The only coffee I drink is a mocha cookie crumble frap from Starbs in the summer :P

  4. I loved Lady Grey Tea! The citrus flavor of the bergamot really helped me get into tea. Do you have a Teavana near by? Their lose teas are so cool! And they have a lot of varieties to try.

  5. I was at a competition in OKC this summer and every morning I drank a cup of English Breakfast Tea. My team won 3 world championships so I swear by that stuff now, ha!

  6. I'm a huge tea fan! I have at least 3 cups a day at school, and probably drink at least 2 pots at home to myself! Twinings is a great brand, I always have it at my boyfriend's!
