Tea of the Day 2023 Update

If you have been following us for a while, you might remember the year I made a new year's resolution to try and make my way through my big tea collection, trying a new tea each day and seeing how long I could go without duplicating. 

I made my way through my tea shelf and started ordering assortment packages. Some tea brands sent me samples to try. It was a fun year. I kept it going throughout the year. I didn't have tea every day - sometimes I'd miss a day or two and when I got really sick with COVID late that year and was hospitalized, the tea a day went by the wayside. But, I did end up trying 276 teas in 2020.

As 2021 began, I started off with some new teas, but it fizzled quickly. That spring I started on a weight loss journey that extended all year. I greatly decreased the sugar I was consuming. I also made water my main beverage and saved the calories for the food I wanted to enjoy. At that time, I had to have sugar in my tea. And a lot of it. So I abandoned tea for a little bit there. Lately, I've been enjoying it again. I finally got to a point where I can drink it without any sugar. And now that we're in a chilly time of year, I sometimes just feel like having a warm beverage.

So, as 2023 started, I'm got back to the Tea of the Day routine. It's going pretty good. Mostly I'm enjoying teas from my collection at home, but I'm also starting to really love enjoying tea at a lot of the restaurants I go to. I've also got a few tea-loving friends who will share tea with me from time to time. It's always nice when they sharing something new I haven't had before. I'm well into March and right on track. I'll keep updating the blog to let you know what new ones I try. You can also follow along on Facebook and Instagram where I post a pic of each tea I try. Let me know in the comments if you have a favorite tea I need to try!

Keep an eye on the blog where I'm also sharing links to some of our favorites and great combo packs of tea that I love to get from Amazon.
