I definitely prefer tea over a cup of coffee. I grew up drinking loads of different Asian teas and the older I get the more I'm fascinated about these amazingly beautiful dried leafs which give me such a soothing and warm feeling every time I drink it! And it's not just tea to drink but you can also use tea a lot as an extra ingredient in a variety of dishes. It gives a soup, sauce or dressing a whole new dimension and the tea I used the most to enhance savory dishes is the Lapsang Souchong tea! I discovered this tea 6 or 7 years ago in Paris and I straight away fell in love with the deep smokey flavor it has.
I will soon post some recipes for you guys using this tea as an ingredient.
Some people told me this specific tea is supposedly unhealthy for you as it has been smoked. My reaction to that?: ZIP IT and let me have my moment to enjoy this delicious tea, thank you very much ;D!
There will always be pro's and cons but moderation is the key as they say so I cheers to that.
