Most people these days think of me as a coffee drinker--and I certainly am. Ask anyone who knew me when I was growing up and they knew me as a tea drinker. It wasn't until I hit college that I discovered coffee. Not that it ever kept me awake then-and it still doesn't. I can drink a cup and go right to sleep! Same holds for tea.
I grew up on English Breakfast type tea--black tea in other words. In my early teens I started to experiment with different types of teas--nothing exotic-teas like Irish Breakfast tea. Then one day I discovered Peppermint Tea and a life time love affair was born. Not only did I love the taste but it seemed to help when I had an upset stomach. As a result I always try to have at least the tea bags if not the loose tea in my apartment all the time--just in case!! Then one fateful night very recently my gallbladder started up on me--I had one teabag of Peppermint tea left--I used it then I panicked.
You see I really didn't have time to order any on line and I couldn't seem to find any in the stores. I even tried Starbucks-all they had was Mint tea--not the same as Peppermint tea!! I was shopping in the A&P the other day and was glancing at the teas and low and behold I saw "Real Peppermint Tea"--I grabbed it!! Didn't look at the brand-cost-etc-just grabbed it. Came home made a cup immediately--Whew--real peppermint tea--delicious!! I still had not looked at the brand. Just tonight I had another cup-it really is good and as I was going for a second cup I decided to look at the box--Imagine my total surprise when I saw that it was the store brand-A&P--It is every bit as good as all those other teas that cost a whole lot more!!
