What I do love first thing in the morning is a cup of delicious, aromatic hot tea. In fact, I have become quite a tea snob. My husband spoiled me with a beautiful cast iron tea pot from Teavana for Christmas.
My new dragonfly tea pot has a mesh infuser insert, and that is where the magic happens. Along with my tea pot, my husband presented me with a fragrant tea blend: Apple Lemon Pomegranate Rooibos. DELICIOUS!
Since then, I have made a couple of trips to the local Teavana to begin my collected assortment. All of my choices so far have been refreshing and soothing.
Besides collecting actual tea, I have quite a collection of mugs. I typically pick up a mug when I am traveling somewhere new. One of my favorites is one I picked up on one of our Disney trips. I love it because I'm a little bit of a Disney freak, and I have so many great memories of our times there. (Already counting the days 'til Disney 2011!!)
Besides mugs, I have an eclectic collection of tea cups and porcelain tea pots. Unfortunately, most of those are still packed away. I did leave out two cups, however, because my mother-in-law prefers tea cups over mugs when she visits.
If you aren't a tea drinker, why not give it a try? Tazo is a delicious brand of tea bags you can pick up at any grocery store. (It also happens to be Starbucks' brand!) Tea is not only enjoyable to drink, but it is very good for you too!
