    Susy, tea just seems to create a different atmosphere than coffee. Since I’ve been watching British gardening shows all winter and they are big on tea, I’ve acquired a taste for tea. I don’t claim to be a tea drinker but I have been drinking more tea than in the past years. The Brits seem to always put milk in their tea. I don’t. To me milk and sugar disguise the flavor of the tea and tea has such a subtle flavor to begin with. Tea is always a relaxing solitude thing for me. I never drink tea with other people …. well …. unless that’s all they have or I’m in England. :-)

    Have a great comforts and pleasures tea drinking day.

    I agree, tea creates a different atmosphere. I love Traditional Medicinals….love their Throat Coat, Mother’s Millk, and Raspberry Leaf. If I drink hot tea I’m much more of an herbal tea drinker. Hot black or green tea makes me cringe!
