Tea. It does a body good.

Or was that milk? I forget.




Growing up in Texas, sweet tea was a staple in our household. Either that or Kool-Aid (sometimes mom would buy the off brand, Flavor aid. Worse decision ever. But, that's a whole other post!).

So, besides being a household staple, come to find out, tea is actually good for you. Some benefits include keeping you hydrated, protecting against cancer, and boosting your immune system.

Forget all that, it tastes good! That's the only thing that matters.

Tea is also good for those little tickles you get in your throat. Add a little lemon and honey, and you've got yourself a healthy remedy to heal a sore throat.

  3. I love coffee, but I am trying to cut down, so I started drinking tea and I'm loving it! Too bad it's too hot to drink tea now and I don't like iced tea. :(

  4. I was just talking to a friend about how lovely the idea of a cup of tea before bed sounds! :) My sister was born in London, so, we used to do that more often...this post made me think all things tea again!

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for your sweet comment! I LOVED "The Help!!!" One of the best movies I have seen and those in our group who had read the book said it holds up and the movie was fantastic too...you must see it! :)

  7. Tea is my absolute favorite. It's so soothing and yummy. I drink it every day when I wake up! The shop I go to in Seattle is all loose leaf tea, and it's the bomb.com so I can't even drink tea bagged tea anymore! Earl gray is one of my faves! Mmm (:

  11. Love me some sweet tea! Growing up in Mississippi sweet tea was a MUST for every meal so I totally understand. I love trying new teas now. There are so many different varieties and flavors out there.

  12. I love tea, too!!

    Do you ever drink Celestial Seasonings tea? It has a special place in my heart because it's made in Colorado and I've toured the factory a couple times (the mint room is kind of one of my favorite places in the world). But I also love the little tea bags because every one has a quotation printed on the tag. :)

  13. If only we Texans didn't load it down with sugar... it would be so much healthier. Sigh.
