To a Tea

I'll drink coffee when we're at Friendly Farm, because they serve Ellis Coffee, the finest coffee of them all.  But keep the Keurig, fling the Folgers, toss the Taster's Choice and discard the Dunkin', because I'm a tea man from long ago.

I like hot tea, and I keep it simple.  I don't care for Earl Grey or herbal or chamomile or lavender mint tea, although I will have a cup of Asian tea at a restaurant if it doesn't take oolong to get it.

(In the interest of recycling, I drag that joke out every few months.)

Just plain old black tea, please, no decaf and no lemon either. A little bit of milk and I'm good to go.  I don't even need a tag on the bag, either, because my favorite English tea is just in a round bag which I let swim in hot water for a few minutes before it joins the orange peels, used Ziploc bags and eggshells in the trash can...

But just when you think you had seen it all, here comes a new kind of tea bag that will turn your teacup into an aquarium!  These fish-shaped tea bags made by CharmVilla are sure to please both the tea drinkers and the fish fanciers on your Christmas list.

I don't know where to buy them as of now, but look for BJs and CostCo to sell the convenient box of 5,000 tea bags soon!

I think that is just adorable and I am both a tea and a coffee drinker. FYI, Friend, Ziploc bags can be recycled in Baltimore County. Please do not put them in the Trash for the Landfill anymore. Saving Mother Earth. Love you, Friend
