There’s a little Starbucks kiosk at my community college where the desperate may buy their sundry caffeine fixes and perhaps a sandwich (usually in exchange for a promissory note for future progeny). I got coffee there once and it cured me of ever wanting it again!

Anyway, I decided to see if they would sell me a cup of tea, since it’s pretty hard to screw up a tea bag and some hot water. There was a wall of Numi tea selections in there and I chose a breakfast tea, since I’ve never found a bad one of those. Steeping went a bit long—I was doing some homework and forgot to take it out!—but it wasn’t bitter. It wasn’t very strong, either, just pleasant, mellow, and inoffensive.

I love tasting things. Slowly, I’m getting better at it.

I am a coffee convert; the 5+ cups of strong coffee I used to drink every day has trickled down to 1-2 cups a week, if a pot’s already brewed and I’m feeling lazy. Otherwise, tea all the way!

It’s been a few months now, which is enough for me to know that everyone likes different things about their cup. Personally I like my teas the way I like my men—strong and naked, with no artificial flavors or preservatives. Also dry, and in a tin. Hah!

Life is interesting and occasionally irritating. Because of this, I am sometimes laser-eyed, but a nice cup of tea usually helps.
