T Is For Tea

Big fan of trains.
Wish they didn't derail so often, seems like once a month I read something... or I'd take them more.
I like tea better anyway.
But let me fill you in on the back-story.
Those of you who know me, might know me to be a coffee nut. Yes, one time, not so long ago, I lived for coffee. Especially Tim Hortons coffee. I couldn't pass the place.
Well I still can't, but that's another story that should be filed as A For Addiction.
A few months ago I got the flu. Not just any flu, but the one that has you laying on the floor believing that is the best spot in the house to lay on. It knocks you off your feet, literally. Everything hurt.
I couldn't stomach coffee. Not for the coffee, but the cream I used. I'd fill right up.
So I had a tea.
It didn't make me feel heavy or filled up. But it did give me the caffeine I so badly needed.
I haven't had a coffee since then. Haven't even looked back.
I was scared too.
When I went without coffee previously I got the worst headaches. But not this time. They still only came with the up and downs of weather. (Another story again... man I have lots to share some day...)
So now I am a certified tea drinker.
I like them all. From Orange Pekoe to Chai, Green to Earl Grey, bring it on!

So tell me folks what do you prefer, coffee or tea?

  1. You don't have head aches now, because that would be a symptom of caffeine withdrawal, which you don't have, because now you're drinking tea. I like both very much. Tea favorites: Jasmine green tea, Pomegranate white tea, (the real Chinese) oolong tea, tropical fruit tea from Mighty Leaf, etc. My fave coffee is Quatamalan San Sebastian (beans) cappuccino from Peet's coffee:) Thanks for coming to my blog earlier!

  2. I prefer coffee, but love a cup of tea when I don't feel well.

    Try Constant Comment, it was my grandmother's favorite...

  3. I love coffee in the morning, and tea in the evening. I use a flavored creamer in my coffee and honey usually in tea. {:-D

  4. Yes. I do have one mocha from Tim Horton's each morning as I go to work. I am not sure my brain will turn on anymore without one (all my SOs fault too!). But I love tea too. I have Red Chai next to me right now. The only tea that I have ever found that I really disliked (discounting things like Lipton's which is tea in name only) was Lapsang Souchong - it tasted, to me, like I was drinking (and breathing) fireplace ash. Bleargh!

  5. Coffee for me! Dark roast and served black. No Starbucks for me!!
    I like tea from time to time... Earl Grey, Formosa Oolong and now I remember Constant Comment that RMW mentioned! Still with nothing added!

  6. I do love my morning coffee, but in the evening, it's all about the tea. Guess I enjoy both.

  7. I drink both, but nowadays more coffee. Here's the funny thing...I never drank a cup of coffee until I was 50. I was 100% tea back then. I'm not exactly sure what made me start drinking coffee. I guess the change was gradual. Sorry about your flu, but glad you're feeling better now.

Scooby Doo: The Sword And The Scoob

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL NOW AND DVD MARCH 23! RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
