I immediately went to Kroger and picked up a few flavors and have been pleasantly surprised. I think I never let the tea bag steep long enough to give real flavor...I've learned that's key! The tea is still giving me some caffeine, but I think I just like something hot in the morning to hold on to and sip. Some of my new favorites are Pomegranate White Tea, Acai Pomegranate and Blueberry Green Tea and an Orange Spice variety.
Boxes of tea have gotten rather bulky so when I stumbled upon this jar at Marshalls today I knew just what I could do with it...
I love that now all of the pretty colors from the tea can be displayed and it will be much easier to grab then having to go through tons of little boxes.
What I would ultimately love to have one day in my house is a coffee & tea bar. I've been starting to see some of these on Pinterest and it's right up my alley. We have so much on our counter with our Keurig, coffee ground holder, sugar dish, jar of sweetners and now our tea jar. The Keurig means we also have tons of random k-cups and they're a beast to store, especially with limited counter space.
What do y'all think about this idea? Do you or anyone you know have a coffee/tea bar in their kitchen?
