let them drink tea

I’m a huge coffee snob. But the sad thing is, the magical after-effect of caffeine just never really works on me (70% of the time I can still doze off when I’m studying, AFTER I CHUG A WHOLE CUP OF COFFEE). So recently, I turned to another alternative – TEA. I was pretty tea-centric for a few months last year, I would go on treasure hunts at David’s Tea and try new experiments with tea that I never imagined they would exist (my favourites are Love Tea #7 and Forever Nuts). I just stopped going after I realized I stocked up enough for a considerably large tea chest. But Clipper rekindled my addiction to tea again. I found this familiar looking, cute paper box sitting among the rows of tea in the PA supermarket. And guess what? I’ve really met you before, my dear Clipper, back in the days when I was studying in England and obsessed over food/tea/snacks in Sainsbury everyday (because there was nothing better to do. private boarding school means endless rules and curfews).

It was like meeting an old friend again. So this time, I decided to pick a Clipper to come home with me.

Once I opened the box, the fruity aroma of raspberry hit me and I was already head over heels. It was as if a raspberry fairy sprinkling fairy dust all over the air (Don’t judge. I’m a huge fan of the Flower Fairies).  One sip, and I decided it’s going to be my perfect study partner from now on. Besides, white tea is a natural source of antioxidants and it gives you glowing skin. What’s not to love?

After finding my way back to the arms of tea again, I realized tea actually works a lot better on me than coffee does. I find myself more alerted and concentrate better after drinking a brew of refreshing tea. Not that I don’t love coffee anymore, but since coffee is very dehydrating and winter in Montreal means being in  dryness 24/7 (a bowl of blueberries would shrink to ultra-mini ones within 30 minutes in room temperature during the winter), tea is definitely a much better choice. Though, I’ll have to admit that I’ll still visit Starbucks once in a while just to satisfy my soy misto (with 1/2 pump of caramel for a grande) cravings.
