Whether morning, noon or night, hot or cold, a cup of tea is soothing and relaxing to enjoy. I drink tea daily, and choose different flavors based on mood or time of day. I’d like to share some of my favorites and when I tend to drink them!
P&G Tips, English Breakfast, Orange Pekoe , Tetely Ginger and Cardamom are all teas that I tend to drink with a splash of milk in the morning. The milk counterbalances their bitterness or spice. They’re all fairly bold too, which is why I enjoy them at the start of the day.
When stressed out, my go-to teas include ginger, peppermint (Celestial Seasonings and Stash are my favorite brands), chamomile and a mixed tea called “Tension Tamer” by Celestial Seasonings. These flavors are all calming, and great for any kind of stomach issues, which sometimes accompany my stress.
My favorite flavor of tea, which I will drink any time of day and buy in bulk, is “Bengal Spice” and it’s also by Celestial Seasonings. This tea is a mix of cinnamon and other warm, amazingly smelling spices that make me all fuzzy inside. I tend to drink it whenever I feel like a random cup of tea and prefer something decaffeinated.
Another perennial favorite tea of mine is jasmine. I’ve been drinking it since high school and love both green and black jasmine tea varieties. I quite possibly have never had a bad cup of jasmine tea. Maybe it’s the particular taste, or the thought of those pretty white flowers as I drink it. Either way, it’s relaxing and soothing, generally precisely what I love about tea.
Of course, I drink other teas as well. I have tea drawer at work, and another drawer in my kitchen. Everything from oolong to matcha powder and a random tea sampler can be found somewhere nearby and I love it. At the end of the day, all of it warms me up and makes me happy, which is exactly my cup of tea.
