I might be that old lady who loves to drink tea. Think of the last time you went out and got a box of tea bags and made the tea in hot water and just drank it? Maybe add some honey or sugar? Without being sick or fearing being sick, just drank tea?
Yeah, I didn't think you could think you would have a last time. And if you do, kudos, not many people do.
So for the mass majority of the population, hot tea is reserved for really occasions, old people and being sick, but for me, hot tea is a good drink to have to unwind, when it's cold outside, not when its hot outside but maybe for when I feel like it in my house and observing the hotness outside, or really just any occasion. Therefore, tea should be a present for my birthday (January 30th, just in case you wanted to know), a treat in a gift bag for Halloween, a thank you gift around thanksgiving and a Christmas present (only in December does Christmas present apply) (Just saying).
For the tea lovers out there, you'll understand it when I say I want loose leaf tea, not the ones in prepackaged bags. Maybe even the teas that are bundled up flowers that bloom in the hot water. There's more than just the Lipton that comes on the cute little bag. There's also the matter of the filtering cups, the ones that you put loose leaf tea in then you pour water and then filter the tea leaves out with the filter, those are good! Sometimes, people just use some ginger root as there tea.
