My Favorite Tea


If you know me well you know that I’m a tea drinker. I have been since I was young, thanks to my mama. I prefer black teas and for the past 10 years or so, my favorite tea has been Republic of Tea Mango Ceylon. I have never gotten sick of it. The problem, though, is that it’s not sold many places. Since I ran out recently I’ve been trying other teas. I saw this Mango Black Tea at Trader Joe’s the other day. It looks like it might be a perfect replacement and it was cheap!

It’s good but it’s a lot more tangy/fruity than my favorite. Oh well. It was worth a try. I suppose I should just start ordering it online.

Metabolic Frolic in the Morning


Every morning I sit down at my cubicle to check my e-mails and google reader while I sip a cup of tea. The past several months I’ve been delighted to have my absolute favorite tea.

Republic of Tea – Mango Ceylon
Metabolic Frolic Tea
Fruity Black Tea Blended with Blossoms

I am a tea lover but I prefer black tea (especially ceylon). Please don’t bother telling me about your favorite green tea or herbal tea. If you’ve never had Republic, give it a chance. They’re my all time favorite tea maker and they’ve got 100s of varieties. It’s a little bit hard to find. You can get it by the cup at Panera Bread or buy the canisters (50 bags for around $10) from Fresh Market, Books-a-Million, Whole Foods, Wegmans or online.
