Cuppa tea

Today I've been listening to BBC Radio 4's piece on specialty tea, which I found fascinating, especially since I've recently developed an appreciation (well, a bit of an obsession, really) with loose-leaf teas. Personally, I find the flavor of loose-leaf tea to be greatly superior (read: bolder, more flavorful, with a discernible freshness) to that of tea found in bags. But don't take my word for it!

Ohhh I want to hear this! I'm not a big tea drinker, but I've vowed to become one. So much healthier than the cans of diet pepsi I drink (gross). XO
