tea convert...

i've always been a coffee-loving gal. it starts my day, it keeps me warm in the winter, and it gets me through the afternoon sluggish time between 2-3pm (even though coffee has no effect on me. like, i can drink an espresso in bed at 11pm and be asleep by 11:05pm). tea has never done anything for me, and for the most part i would stay away from it. the odd time, i would try a new flavor, because i wanted to like tea, but it just never happened. i was moved to a new floor at work and this floor happens to love tea, meaning that every day, a different type of tea is made at 11am and an email is sent out saying which kind is ready. a few times i've tried a little bit in the hopes of liking it, but no.

however, that all changed saturday. after a day of shopping with dylan, we finished off at one last mall. we got thirsty and debated between davidstea (right beside us) or starbucks (just down the hall). we chose davids and walked in only to  be greeted by friendly and helpful staff. one of their samples was called 'sleigh ride' and while i was skeptical to try it, i'm glad i did because it was a life changer! a tea i liked!! the few staff we were chatting with couldn't believe neither of us had had a davids experience before, and especially that i didn't like tea. needless to say, we stocked up on a few essentials to get us started and i think we may be tea converts.

sleigh ride, you convinced me there are good tasting teas out there.

we certainly won't be giving up our morning coffee, but this is definitely a new alternative!

It took me a while to enjoy either tea or coffee. Tea I love when I'm sick (it really does wonders for a sore throat with some honey and/or lemon) or at night before bed. Coffee is for mornings or days when I need an extra jolt.
