There’s nothing quite like a soothing, hot cup of tea. While I normally drink coffee in the morning and therefore tend to enjoy my tea in the afternoon or at the end of the day as I’m winding down, I’ll also have it in the morning once in a while just to change things up. Having a few moments to slow down, take a breath, and reflect helps me feel more relaxed and together. In fact, I think tea time should be a required part of the day!
While I’ve always loved tea, I don’t love waiting around for hot water to be ready to make it. Even with the electric kettle I bought last year, which certainly hastened the process, I can’t count the amount of times I’ve become engrossed in something else and then completely forgot about the kettle (which shuts off automatically when it’s done). Enter one more reason I’m in love with my Keurig – I can have hot tea in just a minute! No waiting the water to be done, no waiting for it to brew, and no cleaning up tea bags. I just choose my tea, brew it up, add a little honey, and I’m good to go.
