So I like coffee, but I cannot stand what it seems to do to my body. Tea is much gentler to me, but I still really liked the taste of coffee…and I miss it. I tried the Javavana in effort to get the taste without all the jitters and appetite stimulating effects, etc. I will have to give it a day to see how it plays out – but the taste is spot on. I kind of can’t believe it’s tea, it tastes that much like coffee. So far, so good – I think I’ll be revisiting this one again.

UPDATE:
Well, this gets a huge bump up. It tasted like coffee but was nowhere near as havoc wreaking on me. I am working on trying to build up a “staple” cabinet, and this one is in it for sure. Can’t wait for tomorrow morning to make this again!

A few of my favorite teas (in no particular order):

*Dessert flavored blacks
*Breakfast blends
*Virtually any black tea (but lapsang/keemun!)
*Dancong oolong
*Sencha
*Dragonwell

When it comes to tea, I feel like the 10th Doctor says it best:

“Tea! That’s all I needed! Good cup of tea! Super-heated infusion of free-radicals and tannin, just the thing for healing the synapses. "
