Well, I’m still hobbling around so I haven’t been out anywhere to test anything new. I have however signed up for Amazon Prime and have been getting deliveries of various teas and coffee that I don’t feel like limping over to Trader Joe’s to buy.
One of my neighbors got for a Christmas present a coffee maker that does both brewed and those pod things. I hate the pods on principle, since I personally feel that they’re likely as good for the environment and lead-painted styrofoam, but I’ve been using them. Primarily because I have found that since I an woefully out of practice, my brewed coffee is pretty terrible. So I have been using the pods. I’ve been pretty boring, sticking to Starbuck’s Pikes Place blend. I suppose at some point I will branch out; if you have any suggestions I’d love to hear them.
As far as tea, I had already laid in a pretty good stock of Trader Joe’s teas, in Chai, English Breakfast and Earl Grey. I actually think I like tea even better than coffee, but the thing I’ve noticed about it is that it really stains the interior of my cups- far more than coffee. Makes me wonder what the he!! it’s doing to my teeth, but oh well.
I know that there are scents that feature coffee as a component, but I can’t think of one that I really liked that much. Suggestions? Leave them in the comments.
