That's My Cup of Tea

Once again I quit drinking coffee. It's been about a month since my last cup. I have been enjoying black tea in the mornings instead. I prefer Earl Grey, and I usually drink it with a little bit of raw honey and a splash of almond milk. I am now convinced that I prefer black tea to coffee. It reminds me of spending time with my Welsh nana when I was a little girl. We drank Lipton tea with tons of cream and sugar. Sometimes I actually wondered if we were having a competition to see who could pour the most cream and sugar into their cup of tea. She drank her black tea concoction all day long while smoking cigarettes, reading, petting her mini yorkie and snacking on little shortbread cookies. We had the most interesting conversations over cups of tea at her little kitchen table. I initially stopped drinking coffee and switched to tea because of the health benefits. Now I am enjoying it because it's so delicious and because of the precious memories it brings back of my nana.
