I am a sort of tea enthusiast. Not so much a fan of coffee, but I can throw down tea. i am more of a fan of black and green tea not so much a fan of fruity/floral teas. I am still trying to work out the exact difference between Earl Grey, Lady Grey, English Breakfast, and Irish Breakfast teas. But they are all yummy! I can't justify buying tea from places like Starbucks, well I can't justify starbucks to begin with, but that's another story.
When I go out to eat with my parents I mortify my mom when I bring my tea and honey out of my bag.
There is one place here in Alexandria I will buy there tea. It is this yummy blend of I am not even sure. Lol! But they never sell it loose, so I am on the hunt to find it elsewhere.
My friend lives in Pittsburgh and there's this really awesome tea shop. When I visit it's a stop fer sure; when you walk in you are lost in a world of delish smells. They sell this yummy chocolate mata with actual pieces of chocolate!.
I recently discovered green tea with matcha and brown rice. It has a medium nutty flavor. I found it at a Korean grocery in the area. And it's so fun to look at!
making tea at home is not only fun, but economically important. $1.95 for a cup of tea everyday starts to add up. I'll stick to my $0.35 per cup thank you very much. that
