    I'm really in love with tea right now. I only drank coffee for the longest but I've always liked Jasmine loose green tea. I now have a tea cup loose tea mesh strainer that I'm in love with so I have it all the time now. I also love black loose tea now. I notice though its hard to find good loose tea at most stores. What a pity.

    I've not tried lavender tea so I'm going to have to sample it soon. I love a hot cup of tea while relaxing or during my morning devotions. My mom would give us certain teas for ailments and u guess it's that association that adds to the comfort.

    I never was a coffee drinker until many years into my marriage. Now I drink both. But tea is always a special drink for me.
