It is not by chance that I’ve established this website which deals with tea. Growing up in the Caribbean under a strict culture had prepared me to undertake this venture although I didn’t know it then. As a child, one of the first things I had to do in the mornings was to eat breakfast. It could be an elaborate meal or a mere snack, but whatever it was, it had to include a cup of tea. The adults always drank coffee, but children were not allowed to drink that beverage (according to the older folks, it would stunt our growth). So tea was the first order of the day, and this continued into adulthood. I never transitioned to drinking coffee.
As an adult living in a very cosmopolitan city, I’ve had the marvelous exposure to so many brands and types of teas, it makes my head spin! In addition, I have traveled all over the world and have had the opportunity to sample some amazing teas. These factors started me on a path of exploration. I wanted to learn more and more about the beverage that I find so soothing and delightful. Frankly, for me, there is nothing quite like a cup of tea in the afternoon. Of course, I drink tea morning, noon, and night too!
But the catalyst that spurred me into exploratory action was a university natural science course that I did titled “Understanding Food.” Although only a small segment of the course dealt with tea, there was enough information about it to raise my curiosity to delve deeper. I plan to share with you anecdotes, recipes, health benefit, gadgets, and anything interesting that I have come across that pertains to tea. Do keep visiting our site.
