The only drawback of tea, from my point of view, is that it stains your teeth, which is a huge bummer. To combat that, I've started bleaching my teeth to help whiten them up and remove the tea stains. We'll see how that goes...
Now, I realize the holidays are almost behind us, but I just couldn't help but quickly blog about two holiday teas that I love. If you are lucky, you can find these teas at your local grocery stores (hopefully on sale).
The first tea is made by Celestial Seasonings and is called Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride. Yes, sugar cookie tea! Now, I can't say drinking a glass of this tea is as good as eating a sugar cookie, but if you combine the tea with a couple of tablespoons of some soy milk or rice milk, it makes a really great and satisfying warm drink.
The second tea is made by Bigelow and is called Eggnog'n. The name speaks for itself -- it is egg nog flavored tea. For those of you that don't have time to make your own low calorie egg nog, this is a great way to get your eggnog fix. The tea is not thick like egg nog (especially when made with water), but its aroma and taste are very similar to that of eggnog (nutmeg, etc.). I actually tried combining a bag of the eggnog'n tea with some warm almond milk and it came out pretty tasty.
I bought the sugar cookie tea at Whole Foods, and after looking all over town for it, I found the egg nog tea on sale at Safeway (not in the tea aisle, it was being featured at the end of a random aisle). I bought two boxes so I now have a decent sized stash. :)
And, for those of you that want to forget about the holidays (and holiday teas), I still highly recommend Good Earth's Sweet and Spicy Herbal Tea -- by far, my all time tea favorite!!
