I have decided to give up my beloved coffee and am switching back to my tea drinking days. Although, I love coffee, my body does not, and I want to give it a break. I am not down on coffee. I just happen to drink WAY to much of it and it is not serving me well. I feel a lot cleaner when I drink tea and my plan is to have the occasional coffee as a treat.
So I am on day 3 of having no coffee and definitely had a bit of withdrawals the first two days but am feeling much better now. I love tea and would usually drink 2-4 cups of coffee and then switch to tea during the day. My coffee consumption was dehydrating me and making my body work harder. I also found that I would mistake hunger for dehydration and am already feeling the positive effects of being more hydrated. Yah! I am also hoping to shed a few pounds as well. The last time I gave up coffee for 6 months, I lost 5lbs. I am not sure if that will happen this time around but if it does I'll take it. Ha!
My favorite morning tea combination just happens to be tea from Tao of Tea! I am within walking distance of the Tao of Tea teahouse and it is a real treat to visit. So my favorite combo is
Tao of Tea Osmanthus Oolong Tea mixed with Tao of Tea Cranberry Orange Herbal Tea
