Fast forward 20+ years and enter Teavana. I had zero idea hot tea could be so . . . specialized, not to mention expensive! My brother treated me to a beautiful thermos and Earl Grey from Teavana for my birthday recently, and I must say I'm hooked!
|Reeeeally nice thermos from Teavana -- pardon the wine glass!|
With some Christmas money I received a short time after, I ventured into the world of green tea by purchasing Gyokuro Genmaicha, a blend that is made with toasted brown rice. A friend of mine said he loved drinking green tea with honey and one Splenda packet. It helped him sleep like a baby at night. I'll be trying that for sure! :D

Drinking hot tea is relaxing to me and just one more small way to remember to take time for myself after a busy day at work and then at home being a mom. And, by shopping at Teavana, I'm able to get a new toy for my Kalvin the Kat!

I think it must have smelled like catnip to him. LOL
