I am new to tea (this is Jan 2012). Well, not new to tea – I’ve always drank tea. My earliest memories of going to church is being “grown up” and getting myself tea, and then proceeding to put so much sugar in it that it wouldn’t even all melt.
I have never been a coffee drinker. I can’t stand the taste, though I love the smell. I feel so left out of life by not drinking coffee. I realize that “meet for coffee” does not have to be taken literally, but I do not understand the lingo I hear – grandes, talls, frappaccinos, lattes…complete foreign language. You get the strangest looks from people who find out you don’t know how to make coffee. I think people think I say that just to get out of kitchen duties, but other than instant, I do NOT know how to make coffee.
I just stumbled into David’s Teas last month, and have fallen in love with the fact that there is something, somewhere, for us non coffee drinkers.
I am learning that there is a whole big tea world out there, and I am eager to explore.
