      Hi hike! I know what you mean, I do love my cup-a-Jo! I love teas when I'm feeling particularly blah and need a perk or if I'm in need of soothing! Thanks for commenting!

      Good material. I found a Tulsi-green tea-pomegranate blend I like. My challenge with teas is that I'm attached to organic espresso so tea tends to seem bland. I usually drink it as iced tea.
