The tea-addicted geek talks about…tea.
My online handle (TeaAddictedGeek) often inspires the following question: “What are your favorite teas?”
I would have to go with green tea (especially jasmine green), Earl Grey, chai, and various blends from Teavana–which is sadly now closed. These days I get blends from either the Republic of Tea (I’m hugely fond of their double dark chocolate mate), T2 (New York Breakfast with Just Cinnamon is my jam), or I pick up some tea from Starbucks in jade citrus mint.
Depending on the tea I like it as is, or I’ll add both stevia and almond milk. The double dark chocolate mate from Republic of Tea or the T2 New York Breakfast tea I typically have with both stevia and vanilla flavored unsweetened almond milk. They go well with vanilla flavored soy milk, too.
Tea is also very good for you. Studies have shown that green tea can help lower cholesterol, burn fat, and may even have cancer fighting properties.
So, drink up! Tea is squee. 🙂
