The Humble Cup of Tea

A crucial part of my daily life is a cup of hot tea. I know for most people its a cup of coffee, but for me, tea.

It doesn’t have to be fancy to be good.

Of course, there are things like the chai latte (a spiced tea latte) and the Arnold Palmer (a sweetened black tea lemonade mix).

Did you know that chai is just another word for tea? Granted, it’s a spiced tea that features cardamom, ginger, cloves, and cinnamon and originates in India. So when you go up to the counter and order chai tea you are ordering tea tea. Thank you for coming to my ted talk.

But it’s the humble, plain, black tea that’s, well, my cup of tea. It’s a simple cup that warms you up. Good plain or with a variety of sweeteners or milk, though I prefer it with honey.
