I love coffee. Correction: I used to love coffee. Well, I still do, I think. I don't know. Read on.
On Christmas Eve, I started to develop a pretty awful cold/cough. (It still is persisting, but it's about done with.) Consequently, I started drinking lemon tea with honey, or lemongrass tea with honey, or mint tea with honey. Anything to start making my throat feel better and not like someone scraped it up with the bristles of a toothbrush. I wasn't drinking coffee at all, because the harshness of it made my throat feel worse.
Anyway, at the beginning of this week, I decided to try having a cup of coffee. Big mistake. It tasted awful! I thought, well, maybe it's because this cold is lingering. So I kept trying throughout the week, and it kept tasting awful.
So now I guess I'm a tea drinker instead of a coffee drinker. I've only been using the pre-packaged tea bags for now, but locally we have a tea shop that sells loose tea leaf. Anyone out there also drink loose-leaf tea? What's your favorite? For caffeine addicts like me, what have you found that gives you the jolt of caffeine you desire? I appreciate your comments and help!
