You know how the body is 75% water? Well, I’m basically 75% tea and the rest is glitter and anxiety. I drink a lot of tea; I’ll drink it hot, cold with or without nut milk (don’t laugh) and I’ve tried a lot of weird and wonderful brands and flavours. The first thing I do when I wake up is drink tea; I have a lovely partner who leaves a cup of tea on my bedside every single morning for me. It also helps that I don’t mind cold tea if I want to sleep in and drink my tea later. I will not hold a conversation or care about anything until I’ve had my tea and I will continue drinking tea throughout the day.
I’ve often been asked what tea’s to recommend and if I have any favourites so it’s about time I turn it into a full blog post. This isn’t going to be the most exciting post ever but it’s a part of my life I often get asked to share so here we go.

My favourite tea’s are a little all over the place and from the list above, you can see that I enjoy sweet flavours with fruity notes. Of course, I like pure teas but drinking a lot of tea, I do like a fun flavour every now and then. Now there are some flavours that I do generally avoid such as citrus and chocolate flavours as a lot of the time, they taste very artificial to me and some citrus flavours can taste as though I’m drinking my countertop cleaner.
I’ve always found making myself a cup of tea to be very calming and soothing. It gives me a little break and a bit of me-time as I wait for the water to boil and the tea to brew. Even just sitting down and holding my hot cup of tea is comforting in itself. Tea has become a comfort and a ritual to me over the years; it’s a bit of time out of my day to do a little self-care but it’s also a bit of support as I drink my tea and work. Being brought a cup of tea is a huge act of love in my eyes and always makes me feel special and loved. Tea has been a part of my daily life for a very long time and even though I’ve tried coffee, it just did not hit the right spot and that’s just personal preference and I’m happy to stick with my tea.
