One of my latest obsessions has been tea.
I found myself going through a gazillion cups of coffee a week, so I decided to slowly trade some of those coffees for tea. While I still enjoy the occasional cup of coffee, I’ve become much more of a tea person.
My favorite tea by far is Teavana. Ben originally introduced me to these fine little tea leaves.
Teavana is all loose-leaf teas that come in a wide variety of flavors and types (white tea, black tea, chi, ect). I’ve been a big fan of Snow Geisha – “Delicate rose petals upon snow-white tea leaves are punctuated with luscious cherries and a hint of tropical fruits.” Its delicious! Ben’s a big fan of the MateVana.
The only thing about Teavana is everything is loose leaf. Not very work-friendly (ok, if I tried hard enough I’m sure I can do it at work. I’d just have to purchase an additional steeper for my desk and make sure I’m good about cleaning it). So at the office I try and stick with something a bit easier.
So lately, I’ve been sticking with Tazo Zen.
You may be familiar with Tazo, as its the brand carried in most (if not all) Starbucks. I’m a big fan of this green tea version, as it has just a hint of lemon and mint. Its perfect for the 3:00-pick-me-up, or just to sip on something warm on an otherwise cold day.
Have you ever tried Teavana or Tazo? What are your favorite teas?
