Coffee or Tea? An Unintended Consequence


One of the unintended consequences of the Juice Reboot is I’ve lost my taste for coffee. Starbucks used to be a favorite coffee stop and I still like to go there for meetings but no longer do I enjoy their coffee. My tastes have changed and now I enjoy teas of all kinds.
A favorite tea shop in Frederick is the Serenity Tea Room on East Patrick Street. Mrs. Henry, the owner, stocks a large variety of loose teas and sells them by weight or you can pick what you want to drink and she will brew it fresh in a ceramic teapot. I like to take mine to go but you can enjoy having tea and scones in her relaxing tearoom.
So, I didn’t Reboot in order to give up coffee, it just happened. Now on to exploring the world of tea.

  1. Do u have a preferred kind of tea? And have u found any benefits health-wise?

    • One of my favorites is the Passion Tea Shaken with ice at Starbucks. They also have something called London Fog which is Earl Grey tea with milk for those chilly rainy days. I’m still working my way through the tea menu at the Serenity Tearoom and I like everything I’ve tried so far. One of my classic favorites is Bigelow’s Constant Comment Decaf. You can pick that up in almost any grocery store. It reminds me of the tea party we attended at the Governor’s Mansion in Williamsburg when I was a teen. Also, the Good Earth restaurant in La Jolla, CA has a signature tea that is heavily spiced, one of my all time favorites. Thanks for reading the blog.
