To Tea or not to Tea? That is the Question.

This morning I am sitting in my cubicle at work, looking through my desk, and I found my little tea box! There are two different tea bags in here - mint and Irish cream. We have a cafeteria on the ground floor of our office. Their cups are, what I would consider, too big for one tea bag. Of course I could always just put less water in... But where's the fun in that?!  So I'm having the inner debate of, "do I mix them?" Honestly, I'm thinking that it'll be fantastic.

There is nothing better than a hot cup of tea, or hot chocolate, early in the morning. I also adore coffee, but I rarely feel like I need that caffeine boost. I'd like to keep it that way! I don't want to be drinking a pot a day by the time I'm 40, just to get through the day. Now... If that pot is filled with nothing but pumpkin spice latte...Then perhaps I do. Hook me up on an IV drip of that stuff, please!

I just returned, tea in hand. I have to say, I made the right decision! It smells like milky, minty goodness (technical terminology right there). I love Irish cream tea because of how creamy tasting the tea itself is. No need to add milk or creamer, it already tastes so velvety. The mint just gives it that little hint of coolness. Perfect to have right now! Wake me up for work!

Well, now that I'm all woken up, time to get to work.

Eat (Drink!) Well!


  1. Mixing tea? You take a step on a path I have dared never tread! I was always afraid of the consequences. But, I like your "why not" style. I'll have to try this later.
    But when is one cup too big for one tea bag? I usually just leave it brewing for a minute or two longer. I guess more water = weaker tea.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog! I have to maintain funniness being in the stand up comedian world now. New Yorrrrrrrrrk.

  2. Hey Salaam! Yep, that's my problem. The tea is very weak when I use only one tea bag. The cups are pretty sizeable. But the mix was yummy! I bet lemon tea would go well with anything fruity!

    That's pretty awesome you're up in NY doing exactly what you love :) Good for you!
