I’ve not always liked tea. When I was a kid, the only way I would drink it was with about a cup of sugar mixed in. Then, a few years ago, Mom, Aunt Judy, and Donna took me to a little tea shop in Augusta called Miss Muzzie’s Tea Shop. Mom ordered their Wild Strawberry Tea, no add-ins, and I tried some.
I was hooked.
Unfortunately, Miss Muzzie’s is closed… 😦 But I’ve continued to drink the Davidson’s Wild Strawberry Tea ever since. It’s a special tea to me, it reminds me of Mom.
In the years since, my taste for tea was expanded quite a bit, and I’ve found another favorite. PG Tips. And I’ve been a fan of Earl Grey for as long as I’ve been a Star Trek Fan.
I’ve made it a habit of starting every day with at least one cup of hot tea in the morning, and in the afternoon, I switch to iced. And now, I can’t imagine why on Earth as a kid I dumped so much sugar into my tea, ruining such an awesome drink. I guess my tastes have changed.
I’ll take my tea black.
