Tea is magical, it can warm you up, cool you down, improve your health, focus your mind, or put you to sleep. It’s an instigator of long conversations across the kitchen table, and it’s comfort you can reach for when you’re down.
My first memory of tea, is drinking Twinings English Breakfast with my mom. As a kid, it was mostly milk, with a splash of tea, but that was what she drank, so I wanted it too.
I only drank black teas (my dad also got me into lapsang souchong) until my teens, when I started to experiment with herbals. Now I drink them all.
My favorite tea at the moment is milk oolong! I’m starting to explore Pu-Erh teas and really enjoying them.
