Strange how a teapot can represent at the same time
the comforts of solitude and the pleasures of company.
No one can understand the truth until he drinks of coffee’s frothy goodness.
Coffee or tea? Here at Chiot’s Run we enjoy both, we drink 2 cups of coffee a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. In between our coffee we drink tea, mainly herbal teas. Of course coffee is my favorite of the two, if I had to choose just one for the rest of my life it would coffee, in the form of espresso. As far as tea goes, I am partial to the organic tea mixes from Mountain Rose Herbs, their Chai is quite good as well. Here’s to a cup of steamy goodness on a cold winter day!
Jennifer here. A few months ago my doctor recommended that I stop drinking coffee to help curb my migraines. Since then I’ve been drinking a lot more tea than usual. Fortunately loose herbal teas and herbs are easy to come by – some even in my own garden.
Both of my grandmothers were collectors of tea cups. I’ve since inherited and collected a few myself. I have to remind myself that I can use these instead of letting them collect dust.
Some of my favorite teas include Jasmine, herbal blends containing rose hips and hibiscus, fresh ginger and lemon grass, as well as chamomile. Tea has most of its caffeine on the outer layer of the leaf, so a simple 30 second rinse will remove it for you. I still drink the occasional cup of coffee or Thai iced tea, but for the most part I’m decaffeinated. I even carry my own tea around with me in case my destination doesn’t offer an herbal or decaf beverage.
Are you a coffee or tea person? or do you enjoy both?
