Most of us are familiar with tea pots and strainers and even tea cozies. After all, we're a former colony of England, a nation of tea drinkers.

It's All About the Tea Cozy

Thursday, August 04, 2011

WNYC

Remember when I couldn't stand the thought of dropping my coffee habit in favor of more healthy, less caffeinated, tea? Me neither. But I've drunk the (Earl Grey, bergamot-flavored) Kool-Aid.

A Break from the Ubiquitousness of the Coffee Shop: The Tea Salon

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

WNYC

Since giving up decaf coffee 16 days ago, I've found it tough to enjoy coffee shops. The delicious smell of the roasted coffee is a distraction. And it's hard not to feel deprived when looking at a menu board full of coffee options (cappuccino, espresso, americano, red eye, latte), but little to say about tea except "black" and "herbal."

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

WNYC

In the afternoons, around 5 P.M., I'm really Jonesing for a cappuccino. Even a decaf one, made with foamy, hot soy milk, in keeping with my detox efforts for 12 more days. But I can't. I must resort to tea.

Amy Eddings' Food for Thought: Discovering Yerba Mate

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

I love coffee. Not for the caffeine -- I've been drinking decaf for several years now -- but because I like the strong taste and the creaminess of coffee with frothy, warmed milk. So, it's been a big drag to have to give it up for my 21-day detox. I've switched, for the time being, to tea.

Lessons in Enjoying Tea

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

Instead of drinking my daily 8 cups of water, I've kept myself hydrated (and warm) this winter with tea. I once thought making tea was as simple as boiling water. Oh, how wrong was I. Everything I now know about tea I learned on Malian Dao, a mile-long street in Beijing exclusively devoted to the wholesale of tea. When my legs were tired, I picked a random store and asked the sales clerk to pin cha or tea taste. What I thought would be a 20-minute errand turned into a three-hour lesson in how to enjoy a cup of tea.
