I am going to start a new saying, “ When in doubt, go with black tea. “
Black tea is robust, tasty without being bitter,and has an array of nutrients and antioxidants. I find it has the right amount of caffeine kick to shake off morning or afternoon sluggishness.
For years my go to Black Tea has been- Twinings English Breakfast.
This tea bag is not just for breakfast, it is a delightful afternoon tea when paired with a tea time treat.
The decaffeinated version is just right for those who do not want the effects of caffeine or if you are sipping later in the evening.
Tea bags are convenient for the morning rush or when you do not want a lot of fuss. However there is much to be said for a loose tea.
When you take a few extra moments to add loose leaves to a tea ball or infuser; you not only have tea, you make an occasion.
Currently, my favorite loose black tea is by Two Leaves and a Bud.
This tea is a sip & savor treat for me.
It is ideal on mornings or afternoons when there is no rushing about.
No matter if it steeps from a tea bag or a tea ball, black tea is a must have in my Booksipper tea stash.
