qotd: one lump or two?

How do you take your tea or coffee?
Submitted by Vasquez.

I am a total tea drinker. Hot or cold, I prefer black teas.

For iced, give me a chilled bottle of Tejava and a glass of ice, and I am happy. I am thankful to be in the land of 99 cents Tejava. In Chicago it was $1.19 per bottle at Trader Joes. Still, I am disappointed that there is no case discount, because I have been known to take a case home.

And while it is rare that I put sugar in my tea, I do also enjoy  sweet tea like they make down in Texas, especially on a hot day. It reminds me of my great-grandmother's tea which she brewed in a coffee pot with honey and sugar.

For hot tea, if it is black tea I will usually add milk. Sometimes I even add sugar. I have cut back though.

For other teas I will drink them straight up. I like the Republic of Tea brand as well as Forte. But most of the time I drink Red Rose. Right now there is a box of PG tips on the counter, so we have been enjoying that.

    If you come back down to SD again, you'll have to try Exotic Bamboo Imports. Strange name for a tea place, but they have an entire wall full of jars of tea from all over the world… the last cup I had was a South African rooibos that I really enjoyed. There was a tea place in San Francisco (sold, not served) that I recently tried that was also delightful… I think it was called Red Dragon, or Red Blossom tea company…something like that.

    My mom hates hot tea, but whenever she was sick, she would drink Red Rose. When I was a kid, she bought enough boxes to collect these small, ceramic, off white animals. I was obsessed with having them all. I hadn't thought about that in years…
