I'm normally a coffee drinker, but I've always loved tea, too. For me it's coffee in the morning and tea at night. Lately, I've been drinking a lot of tea. I'm trying to lose weight and I've found that some teas taste amazing with whipped cream. Most whipped cream is carb-free, so it's something I can have on my diet. Don't buy the low-fat or fat-free kind because that has more carbs to make up for the loss of flavor. A cup of tea with whipped cream is almost as good as a dessert -- at least it is to me.
My newest love is Stash's Pumpkin Spice tea. This is incredible with whipped cream. I swear, it takes exactly like pumpkin pie. We're having pumpkin pie for Christmas this year, but I'll probably skip it and have mine in a mug instead. I don't mind. I like being able to wear my old pants more than the taste of a piece of pie -- ha!
A few weeks ago I saw some Celestial Seasonings teas in holiday flavors. I think I saw teas in gingerbread, sugar cookies, and sugar plums. I know I saw an eggnog one, too, but don't know if that was the same brand. At the time, I thought they sounded a little creepy, but that was before I started adding whipped cream to my tea. Now I'm thinking I'd really like them. The calories are so high in the Starbucks holiday drinks, so this is a good alternative. I hope I can still find them. Am I brave enough to tackle a store on Christmas Eve?
How about you -- are you a tea drinker?
