There are so many teas that I enjoy. I live in Japan, so I have learned to love green tea. Earl Grey is one that I drink often with milk. I order fruit or herbal tea when visiting a coffee shop with a friend. When I serve tea at a tea party, I usually serve black tea. A few years ago, I started to have some physical difficulties from caffiene. As a result, I began drinking decafe tea. I love Stash’s chocolate hazelnut and caramel creme. With a little sweetener, this is like having a cup of dessert! Rooibos or red tea contains no caffeine. I first discovered this tea when visiting a friend. She offered me a cup of tea so I asked if she any that was caffeine-free. She served me Good Hope Vanilla by The Republic of Tea. I bought a canister of it to bring with me to Japan. I love it!
Buying tea here can be challenging. I live in a large city that has many shops with foreign food in it. I love when I can visit one of these shops and buy one of my favorite teas. It’s a real treat for this tea lover!
