New Resolutions – Week 2

New Resolutions - Honest Tea

Resolutions from Last Week

Last week, on ‘New Resolutions’…

I wrote about my newfound love of tea and the new teas that I was trying. I tried the Honest Green Dragon Tea and the Honest Assam Black Tea. Both were actually really good. I said something about not liking green tea, but liking dragons; well, the dragons won. I was pleasantly surprised because even though there was a sweetness to it, there was not the over-the-top sweetness that turned me off of most green teas.

The Assam Black Tea was pretty much what I expected, a nice, full body black tea. Not much else to be said about it other than it was good, just as I expected.

New Resolutions - Bizzy CoffeeResolutions This Week

This week, as part of my resolutions series, I leave tea behind and try some coffee. I’ve never been able to get into coffee but people at work drink it like mad. I have tried regular office rot-gut coffee, nice coffee shop coffee of varying varieties and have never really been able to hold an interest in it. Maybe its because I don’t like hot drinks, I don’t know. I’ve never been able to get into coffee.

I am going to try it once again this week.

As I was wondering the tea aisle of the grocery store, I came across some organic, concentrated, cold brew coffee by Bizzy. So I said to myself, “Self, you should try this.” So I am. I am hoping that the not so hot drink will appeal to me a little more, but as I write this and am sipping on it, I think it could use a little bit of warmth to it. I’ll report back the final results next week. For now I am going to (try to) enjoy it.

That’s all for now.

 

New Resolutions

While out shopping for groceries today, I came up with a wild idea. More of that later.

Grocery shopping is always fun. I get to look at all the stuff out of the ordinary. Organic, ethnic, in-store specials, cookware, etc. We were about three-quarters finished shopping, or, as I like to call it, seven-fourths of the amount of time and money I had planned on this outing when I came up with an idea for a resolution. I am going to try something new every week. This will not necessarily apply to food or food related items, but, at this point in time, it most likely will.

So my new resolution for this month is some new tea I found in the organic food section. Since I gave up alcohol and bad eating more than a year and a half ago, I have found an affinity for tea. I like black unsweetened teas that are served at room temperature. I know that this is probably breaking so many different rules of tea drinking decorum and that I will likely be confronted by the tea drinking police at some point in time, but this is how I like to drink my tea.

So, my new thing for this week is Green Dragon Tea by Honest Tea. It is fair trade organic which is always a good thing. In the past, I have not cared for green tea but I do like dragons so I’m hoping its a wash.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
