There are two types of people in this world. Tea lovers and people who haven’t discover how awesome tea really is. I my friend fall in the former. I’ve always liked tea over coffee but when I started transitioning to becoming a pescatarian ,that preference for tea grew. I started researching the different types of tea and their benefits and how adding it to your daily intake can do great wonders. Slowly but surely I was drinking at least 3 cups of tea a day varying from Green ,Black Oolong and Rooibos.
By the time my birthday came around this year, I was pretty much enamored with tea that I wanted to incorporate it into my birthday festivities somehow.So I did Afternoon Tea at the Historic Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. The experience was so much fun that from that moment on ,I sought out to find the perfect tea set to have Afternoon Tea at home. Up until last week,I found a cute starter tea set that served 4 and was perfect for Matcha tea. I finally received it in the mail today and had my very first Afternoon Tea party at home with my family. It was so much fun that I’m thinking this might be a weekly or monthly thing for us in 2015.
I don’t personally have a preference of any brand of tea, but I am particular about the ingredients in my tea. Being that I drink my teas without sugar or cream I like the teas to only contain organic tea leaves. The closer to nature the better in my book! But sometimes that is not always the case especially when dealing with gourmet tea companies. Below I’ve added a list of the teas that I like and have tried in the past few months. Most of them are one ingredient teas and the others aren’t but they taste so good we’ll give them a pass. Happy Sipping!
