I’m starting to get into tea a lot more. This comes roughly 3 years after my friend Dustin telling me I should do so. Of course, he’s still way harder core than I am — he does the whole leaves and strainer thing.
I myself am into the
sane regular method, which employs the use of filterbags. My current favorite brand is Tazo — admittedly because I don’t know any better and the marketing is overwhelmingly effective. Add to that the fact that Dustin included the brand in his short list of recommendations and that about closed the deal.
So, I seem to prefer the green teas, and I think I’m going to start ordering some of the various green options from Tazo in bulk. Buying individual bags from the Starbucks downstairs is not a sustainable way of handling this.
Does anyone have any tea commentary to offer? My big thing with it is getting away from soda as much as possible while still having something flavored to sip on while at the computer or reading. I’m also intruiged by the purported health benefits of green tea in particular, so that’s a plus as well. What I’m most interested in, however, is figuring out whether or not dumping Aspartame is going to afford any cognitive performance gains. I’m getting ready to actively pursue the whole “cognitive optimization” thing, and this is part of it — more on that later.
At any rate, chime in with your thoughts if you so desire.
