Yes... it was a miracle that I thought would never happen...
I gave up soft drinks...
Guess its been almost a year now...
Its funny to think how many I used to drink in a day & now when I see them, I think, "Oh my goodness ... do people know what's in them?"
... crazy how a mind can change about something.
And yes, I'm now addicted to seltzer water, which I've found out, not everyone thinks is all that yummy... & to give credit, it did take me awhile to build up a taste for it.
But in truth, it took me awhile to even get used to Diet Coke.
But one day, Ricky & I were in the mall & saw this new place called Teavana...
The place where Tea & heaven meet, I assume.
They had a machine in the front with samples & I thought, let me give it a try.
It was one of the most delicious things I've ever tried.
So we walk in & BAM.... got introduced to the world of tea.
Not just tea, like tea bags like you get at the store. I mean the
WORLD OF TEA.
Loose leaf tea.
that you have to steep
that need special containers (tins) to keep them fresh
& how some citrus teas need even MORE special tins
& how you can combine flavors
that have real hunks of strawberries in them
& smell like potpourri... (dont know if that's good or bad)
.... I had no idea this world existed...
Next thing I know, we've spent almost $100 & we're walking out with 3 different kinds of tea & a tea set...
While we were excited about it, I was thinking how we were going to make these 3 tins of tea last, because while my Diet Coke bill would add up, I'm not about to spend hundreds of dollars on good tea.
& then, thanks to the wonderful Birchbox that I get every month, there was a sample of a thing called Mighty Leaf...
& I'm not getting compensated in any way, shape or form for this post
I'm just spreading the word
if you like tea, get this tea....
Seriously... GET THIS TEA!!!!
it takes away the tea pot, the loose leaf stuff you have to measure out, the tins, all the costly stuff
This tea is loose leaf tea & it comes in the most amazing silk-like package that you steep it in.
Easy to just grab one & take to work... & because its real loose leaf tea with real fruit chunks & herbs in it, you can actually use it for more then one cup.
& the best part?
have you ever seen how healthy REAL tea is for you?
That's incentive enough for me...
Are you a tea drinker?
Have you ever been to Teavana?
What's something simple that you do to keep yourself healthy?
How many of you say, Forget this... give me coffee?
