An Update on the Tea Resolution

So, I like to do new year's resolutions that are related to food. I've made resolutions in the past to try two new restaurants each month, to have a meatless dinner once a week or to dine out once a week for lunch. 

This year I decided I need to clear out some space in my pantry and the tea was taking up a lot of room. So, I decided to have a different cup of tea each day - and see how long I could go without duplicating them. I also gave away quite a bit of tea - stuff that I had duplicates of. This would help me make a little extra space in my pantry and I'd end up trying a lot of different teas. I had accumulated so many and there were a lot of them I hadn't even tried yet. I'm finding new ones I love and rediscovering old favorites because I was in a rut of drinking the same two or three over and over.

Here's what I've had so far this year. (with some notes on some really liked). I'll do another little update next month and fill you in on what else I've tried. If you have a favorite tea, comment below or reach out on social media! I'd love to hear what other tea lovers are drinking, too!
