OPERATION DRINK TEA


I love tea. I cleaned out my tea drawer/cabinet recently. I knew I had a lot of different kinds of tea, but I didn't realize just how many I actually had. I was shocked!! They are all different except for the 2 Gingerbread Spice - I bought one box and didn't care for it and then bought another box the following year not remembering that I didn't like it. My husband and I are now on a mission to drink tea....lots of tea. I counted over 75 DIFFERENT kinds of tea - that doesn't include the multiple packets of each flavor!! I may have a tea fetish....or a hoarding problem.
I drink iced tea year round and I brew it with a blend of black and flavored tea bags to mix it up. It's been fun trying different combinations. The latest was Peppermint - it was really good!

I may need to get creative. Maybe make some tea bread, tea and crumpets, tea and cookies, high tea, hot tea, cold tea, sun tea, tea for 2. The word 'tea' is looking strange now.

Holy cow girl, that's like a tea aisle :) Do y'all have a Container Store nearby? I cleaned out our stash awhile ago and I got these containers at that store that hold individually wrapped bags. It was a great way to organize them all plus be able to see what we have.

Pam, I'll have to try that! My hubby bought me a CASE of the Pumpkin Spice tea for Christmas last year since I liked it so much. I only have 2 boxes left :)

Whoa, that's a stash! I seem to collect cake mixes and sugar free instant pudding.

So tell me what does your tape collection look like?
