In some circles in the United States, it is looked down upon for men to drink tea.
Just like taking u out of colour, I have a tendency to think about the Boston Tea Party and opt for coffee.
However, my grandmother and I would drink tea on a regular basis when I was growing up and she is who I really think about when I prepare it. Thank you for rounding out my world view!
Here are a few of my favorite store flavors. Perhaps one day I will complete a post on the wild tea I steep while on my outdoor adventures.
I am working feverishly to get rid of my sore throat by staying hydrated.
Once again, breakfast is epic! I like to eat my way through health concerns!

Oooooh and that breakfast!
It was delicious! What is your favorite tea?
The tea that was born in the city I was born.
Hmmm. Baghdad Tea?
One Last Try! Singapore tea?
Booo me?!😳 I tried to guess! What is your favorite tea?
Look it up.
What does Summerville tea taste like?
Tastes like…. oh man. The BEST southern sweet tea ever!!!! You have to try it, but it has to be from Summerville. Anywhere else is trash.
Ha ha! I should! I am more into bitter drinks, but I will give it a whirl!
I actually decided I would to the drive in service, so I’m out of here!
Ahh! The birthplace of sweet tea!
Drinking my second cup of 🍵 while reading this; love it.
Lovely photos. Have a great day
Thank you! What is your favorite tea?
Tumeric and Ginger Aid. But I drink many others too.
I do the box variety in all sorts of flavors. When the garden comes up, I make tea out of my herb garden. Chocolate Peppermint is a garden favorite.
Where I’m from – tea solves everything 😉🖤
What is your favorite tea?
English Breakfast Tea.
All day long… 😉🖤
Very tasty! I am on board!
I don’t like tea 🙄
Lemon Lime soda🍾🍾🍾🍾
🙃 yes bro
Didn’t know you had bengal tea in america. (In case you weren’t aware, bengal is in India). In India, tea mostly comes from state of assam.
Ha ha! I knew you would comment on the Bengal tea!!! Assam you say? What is your favorite?
You know me well!
Assam is a state in north-east india, famous for tea.
Indian way of drinking tea is quite different. I am not much into tea, but I do like it. I prefer coffee. But indian coffee is also quite different.
How do you make coffee and tea?
To begin with, we use milk, not water. And we add stuff like garlic and other things in tea. Coffee is not so dark. It is quite sweet with more sugar and less coffee powder.
Thanks for sharing! I like my coffee dark as the hinges of hell, bitter.
Haha. I never understood why people like dark coffee.
It is an aquired taste. I did not like it until I was in my early 20’s. I suppose you have a few years.
I believe it could be so.
Maybe it is a stress buster or something.
So, what grade are you in? Are you in high school?
Yes. I am in High School. I am 14 years right now..
I love tea! Use to drink it with my mom.
Beautiful memories I am sure. I imagine she was remarkable.
She is now in the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s and in a long term care facility. The last time I asked her about tea, she insisted she hates tea. I occasionally have a cup and think of our younger days.
Thank you for sharing this. I recently said my last farewell to my Grandmother. I will have a cup of tea today in honor of your mother and the the younger days. 🍵
I’m a heavy tea drinker. I don’t drink water, I drink tea. Not sure how healthy it is though…Your selection of tea looks great!
Thank you! I drink coffee like water!
That breakfast looks YUM!!! I used to hate tea! BUT now, for me, tea relaxes my mind!!! I love and love tea!
Coffee is my preference, but I will get down with the herbs and spices! (Not the illegal kind!)
YEP! Mine too! But in winters mostly!!! In summers i like iced tea!!! YEAH i know!
Iced Tea is Good!
YEP! Sure is!
I am a big coffee drinker. However, since this quarantine, I have been limiting coffee to two cups and drinking tea for the rest of the day. Same as you, trying to keep a healthier routine. Take care and I hope you feel better soon. 🙂
Thank you for your concern for my health!😷 I am normally a two pot a day coffee drinker. Dark and bitter is my favorite! I am a lover of tea, but I drink it less often. I want to maximize the opportunity for rapid recovery. I feel like I am letting my supervisor, peers, and staff down.
Tea is defiantly a healing beverage. I understand the feeling of not wanting to let co workers down. As a teacher, I always felt that way. However, I am sure they only want you to get well. :). I love the memory about your grandma. I think the tea and her memory will help heal you.
Thank you! What do you teach?
I am a Kindergarten teacher. 🙂 I love it, but it is not always easy to find a substitute. Lol
I imagine not! I supervise inmates at a prison. I wonder if there are similarities.
My husband ran the forensics ward at the state hospital for 10 years and we see a lot of similarities. Lol
Patriots drink coffee! I drink tea occasionally as it was introduced to me by an Ethiopian friend, and no one in their right mind would accuse an Ethiopian of not being manly. But I’m still a little uncomfortable with the stigma of it, so I stick to black tea.
Because America! 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 The teeth of patriots were stained yellow with the bitterness of coffee to esure sweet victory!
I love tea😍
I do as well,Freddy Mercury! What is your favorite tea?
Tea yessss, love my ginger tea… add milk and some cardamom… Just peferct😊
I have had it that way before!
It’s really good ayee. I hope you are feeling better now 😊
Things are well, friend. A sore throat, but lots of energy. Sleepy is a sign of Covid. The tea has been soo helpful! How is your son holding up?
Ohhhh poor you. Hope you get well soon and nothing major😊 Krishnav is really good but I must admit his not very happy that mummy is working from home 😁😁😁 because he can’t watch TV 😃
Are you keeping him occupied with other things?
Yes and that’s the plan less TV time and more other stuff like legos, reading, playing outside etc😊
Good for you, mom! You are a superstar! I do not have a television in my home, but we do play video games on occasion.
Funny. Tea is an antioxidant. My husband enjoys tea when I make it for us. ☕️☕️
I enjoy just about anything prepared for me🤠
Right?! So much better!!
Ha ha! No doubt. I was really jonesing for your pizza the other day and my Beloved made some! Wonderful treat! Are you staying safe and healthy?
That is wonderful! I had that pizza again this weekend. We are doing well. Thanks! I am WFH and hubby is retired. NYC is getting hit hard. Upstate NY has cases but nothing like NYC. Hoping it stays that way. How are you doing?
We are well. I am staying home from work with a sore throat for a few days. I am working around the house here and there.
I am praying for you, Bernice!
Awww. Thanks. Appreciate it. Hope you feel better soon. 🙏🙏
Thank you friend! I look forward to what is on the supper plate!
Thanks so much! 💕
Coffee is, of course best, but there’s nothing wrong with some tea, especially with a sore throat. Put a little honey in it.
I love tea, I probably drink too much of it though. 😁 And eating your way through health concerns is a solid strategy
Ha ha! I agree! What is your favorite tea, friend?
Basically any type of green tea, preferably the Chinese sorts
On the day I wrote this post, I had Bengal tea. I found out that it was my Grandmother’s favorite. At the moment, thyme and oregano are coming up here. The peppermint will be up soon as well as the echinacea. Because it is home grown, I will stubbornly begin shunning store bought teas and drinking strange mixes of home brew/ broth😜
I fully support this! I’m just sad I can’t grow my fancy teas at home, but I buy loose leaf tea and it’s a good fertilizer for plants after its boiled
I agree! I like loose leaf tea! I need to start utilizing my coffee grounds as well for this purpose. Have you ever made pine needle tea?
Hm, not yet, I’ve only made cough syrup from it. How do you make it?
I am a savage so there is probably a better way. I simply cut the needles up and steep them in hot water until I have a greenish liquid. I do add a little sugar to taste. How do you make cough syrup with them?
Well, it’s not exactly with needles, but rather with young pine sprouts, you know the light green colored ones at the end of a branch. You boil them with water and lots of sugar for a long time, then drain the syrup. It’s supposed to be full of vitamin C, tastes nice and helps with sore throat and coughing. They even sell it in pharmacies here, but that ones is more processed
I will be trying that soon! I was aware of the vitiman C benefit but not the sprouts. Thank you!
