I have a cherished tea time ritual, which (admittedly) often involves coffee in lieu of tea. There's just nothing like a warm beverage to start the day off on the right foot. Even when the weather is hot in the Summer, I make sure we have a continual supply of iced herbal tea and sun tea at our disposal.
Part of the reason we have such a large tea stash is that when I used to work night shift at the hospital, I would drink tea all night long. Since leaving that job, I've had to limit the amount of caffeine that I consume (due to insomnia and migraines, among other things), so we're left with a large amount of tea that I can no longer drink. I think Jaymz and Zha will have to step up their tea consumption if we're going to get a handle on this situation anytime soon.
In any case, here's a brief tour of the quantity and variety of tea available in this home:

Here it all is displayed on our dining table:

assorted individual tea bags)!
We've got loose leaf and bagged, caffeinated and herbal, Thai bubble tea and (one of my personal favorites) yerba mate. There are many therapeutic teas, including those for pregnancy, nursing, tension/sleep, digestion, and skin health. So many to choose from!
So next time you come over, let's have a cup (or two) together. I am delighted to share the abundance of my tea stash with you!
