I myself love both tea and coffee, just depends on the mood. What about you?
Are you a coffee drinker or tea drinker?

Happy Sunday!


  1. hi girl , you have the BEAUTIFUL BLOGGER AWARD. Please check it out on my blog ^_^.

  2. I know tea is good for me, but unfortunately my weakness is diet mountain dew.

  3. I'm really starting to jump onto the tea bandwagon! But I didn't know about the black tea being as healthful as green. Good news!

  4. I love both! Coffee in the morning and tea before bed. I'm from the south, so we definitely drink our fair share of tea : )

    I'm a new follower of your blog and am really enjoying reading it!

  5. I love tea especially 'teh tarik'.

    Have you read my post on teh tarik?

    Here's the link.

  6. Oh WOW, this is so clever - you have the most gorgeous site here and I had to stop by to leave this comment for you – and to say hello of course ! Your posts are creative and original and you have interesting pictures. It's all perfect ! Thank you for sharing your site and best wishes....

  7. I love tea --especially green tea and Korean barley tea (does this count as white tea?). I don't drink tea as much, though, which is ironic considering that I live in Hong Kong! The occasional bubble tea doesn't count.

  8. I am definitely a coffee person. I have to have it every morning or watch out! ROFL.. I love tea sometimes to relax. Especially when I was pregnant.

    Have a great day!


  9. Oh look at that list! bone builders? cool!!!
    I wasn't a green tea person until I discovered Jasmine tea. that I like. though when I'm seeking a caffeine boost I'm a coffee girl... looks like I should try to drink just a bit more tea though!

  10. I am a tea drinker and enjoy at least 3 cups a day. I like black teas and green teas with black tea being the favorite. I enjoy an occasional cup of coffee but the caffeine makes me jittery if I have too much. Thanks for all the tea info.

  11. Great insight! Thanks. I love me some tea.

  12. I am a coffee girl in the AM but I love a good cup of tea in the PM, especially when it's chilly outside! Didn't realize all of those awesome benefits, though! :)

  13. I love tea! I'm drinking some as I read your posts...decaf since I'm pregnant :)


I' m loving to read your comments:)
