Once again, I need to blog about tea.
I know I’ve told you about Teavana. In case you’ve forgotten, Teavana is to tea what Powell’s is to books. Utopia. Teavana only sells loose teas, and they only sell the highest quality teas. I discovered Teavana when Stan and I visited Dallas during Thanksgiving holidays in 2007. They have more tea varieties than I ever imagined possible, and their teas are delicious. I’ve recently gotten a friend hooked on the teas, and we just placed an order that is being delivered today! I’m so excited!
Currently, I’m really into rooibos teas. For those of you less familiar with the intricacies of tea, you should really know about rooibos, so here’s a link to the Wiki page. My favorite line from that page is “In South Africa it is more common to drink rooibos with milk and sugar.” I always drink my tea with milk and sugar, and hate that people think it is weird. The British do it, and so do the South Africans. Since rooibos tea is from South Africa, I’ll drink it their way.
Anyway, rooibos tea is really delicious, and because it is red, it is closer to pink, which makes me happy!
I have two different types of rooibos tea in the batch I just ordered, and I’m already planning my next order. Tea is becoming much more interesting than coffee, and it is better for me, too!
