I am becoming a morning tea drinker. Is it getting older, or am I just that tired? I used to be strictly an afternoon tea drinker, but there’s been some times recently when all that was available in the morning was tea, and sometimes when traveling a morning tea is so nice. Also a cup of tea in the morning while camping, when everything’s chilly and there’s a mist in the air and I haven’t quite woken up, is just divine. It’s like a warm hug for my internal organs.

At any rate, it’s 9:30 am right now and I’m drinking tea. Maybe it’s because it rained all night and it’s still gray out and I need a hug.

I’ve also become the sort of tea drinker who has lots and lots of different teas. My favorites:

Harney and Sons Earl Grey Supreme. I think this was the first time I could really smell what Earl Grey is supposed to smell like, and I think it got me high.

Dryad Tea Selkie blend. This is a green tea with lemon and ginger that is perfect with honey, and good for sore throats.

Green tea. Just plain green tea is what I like in the morning, and what I’m drinking right now.

Jasmine green tea. A good pick me up, especially in the afternoon.

Yorkshire tea. Good for cold rainy days.

Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime and Tension Tamer are my go-to before bed teas.

You see, I have become a person who has an opinion about tea. Didn’t used to be like this.

    I’m from the south so the only real discussions about tea around here are sweet or unsweetened and ‘do you want lemon?’ And maybe how much ice you want in the glass.

    Hahah, my dad’s from the south and I’ve never developed a taste for sweet tea. It’s scandalous.

    But as an anglophile, my love of a nice cuppa only increases…

    I like most of Celestial Seasonings teas and also have a sampler pack from Dryad Teas. I like tea quite a bit but don’t take the few minutes to make it enough really. I think it is kind of cool to hear about people having an opinion about things. Particularly because it usually means (or at least should anyways) they know something about it.

    Exactly! Tea is a warm morning hug.
    About a year ago I walked by a ‘trap’ in front of a tea house – free samples. They caught me. My current favorite is a long leaf green mixed with orange blossoms.
