    I love love love tea. No coffee for me, green tea is the way I wake up in the mornings! On weekdays I use tea bags as it’s quicker, boiling the water as I get ready, giving it some time to cool so it steeps at the right temperature. On weekends I prefer looseleaf as I have the time to enjoy it and clean up after. There’s now a tea sommelier class being offered at VCC which sounds really interesting, and they’ve got new perfect temperature kettles made for tea lovers. Both things I should be investing in too! Along with some knowledge of the healing properties of various leaves and flowers. All in time I suppose. The Tetley pack would be a fantastic start!
