A few years ago while visiting my grandparents in their cabin in the North Carolina mountains, I discovered the joy of using an electric kettle. I thought it would be a frivilous purchase since you can heat water in the microwave or on the stovetop, but I enjoyed using it while I was there and it certainly made my life easier….it heats water QUICK!! I figured it was close to $100, so it definitely wasn’t in my budget.
Fast foward to a couple years ago, while my family and I were at Target and I found this Aroma electric kettle priced at $29.99 and on sale for $25. Score!! My hubby and girls bought it for me for a Valentine’s Day gift…..and I fell in love. This electric kettle took my tea addiction to new heights! Seriously what was only a 2 cup a day addiction has now blown into a full-fledge ALL DAY LONG addiction. And once I acquired a travel mug, I don’t leave home without my hot tea. Even my friends are suprised when I show up to the park on hot summer days with my hot tea in hand! 😉 This past summer I met my twin….another fellow blogger actually does the same thing with her hot tea!
My favorite Bigelow teas are French Vanilla and Spiced Chai. I like drinking french vanilla in the morning and spiced chai in the afternoon. I also like Stash Mango Passionfruit herbal tea. The prices are much cheaper than the store when I purchase them through Amazon in bulk and with free shipping. Any of these would make a nice gift if you have a tea drinker in your life.
Are you a hot tea drinker? If so, what are your favorite teas?
