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.

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
