woo :) that’s going to be all my morning teas – i set them up the night before and wake up to tea, it’s so great, too bad i can’t afford to have one at work and home!

Cofftea

Yeah I quite enjoy the process of making tea but 1st cuppa in the morning and when I come home (especially in the winter) will be SO nice… and will motivate me to drink more thru out the day.

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
