Happy Friday + Tea




Happy Friday, everyone! I leave you with these beautiful photos which say "tea" to me. If you know me, then you already know that I am a coffee person, but I have decided to move out of my comfort zone and try tea. It's not like that I don't drink tea every now and then, but then again I just stick with black tea. The local co-op food store in my area has a huge variety of teas and my friend introduced me to tea with rice puffs. I had no idea that rice could be one of the ingredients in tea. Anyway, I really liked the taste of it (not that I am quitting coffee) and am going to explore other wonderful flavors like pomegranate green tea about which I read about on a blog. Do you have a secret tea concoction that you enjoy? I'll love to try it! Have a tea-some weekend!

Love all those beautiful cups! And I've always been a coffee lover, too. Only to venture into the land of tea for the past couple years. There are some wonderful concoctions! I always loved green tea with jasmine (pretty standard) and earl grey (esp. dilmah, which is also pretty standard). But there are endless combos! Do you have a Teavana anywhere near where you live? They always have free samples of their latest makings and they are always delish! Happy weekend!
