My switch to tea.

As my personal evolution progresses, I have found myself a tea drinker. Hot tea - not iced tea. I never thought this would happen to me, but it has. I've always been a really big coffee guy and last year I switched to a caffeine free coffee drinker. At some point last year I was talking to a friend of mine who told me about his switch from coffee to tea. I was intrigued by the difference he said it made for him. Simply put, it just made him fee better - more energy and vigor. Over Christmas, Liz and I were at some really funky restaurant (by funky, I mean that they played really weird Christmas music and had a leg-lamp up...yes, the same leg lamp from "A Christmas Story") and we both got tea - and I really, really liked it. The next day I got some more tea at Starbucks, and I knew I was hooked. Since then, I've had many different types of tea and am really enjoying this fresh experimentation with my pallet. Taste aside, it really does make me feel better - more refreshed. It's a simple thing, but I think I've recently stepped up my personal quality of life. So, next time someone asks me to grab some coffee, you can be pretty sure that I'm actually drinking tea.
