B is for Brew Basket, a tool used to make loose-leaf tea that I have exceptional difficulty using. One would think I would have figured it out after so many failed attempts…
C is for Caffeine, as many people get their daily dose of caffeine from tea. Not me, though. I drink caffeine free. Too much caffeine makes me hyper.
D is for Darjeeling, a bright and tangy tea grown in the foothills of the Himalayas. It’s very good, and if you like Earl Grey, you’ll probably like it.
E is for English Breakfast, one of the best known tea blends, and my personal favorite.
F is for Fresh and Easy, a nice, natural-ish grocery store about ten minutes away from where I live. They sell 100-count and 40-count boxes of English Breakfast tea for the same price. No complaints here.

I is for Iced, the temperature of a glass of tea in the hot summer air.

N is for Natural, the types of flavors you wish to have added to your tea, as opposed to artificial flavoring.

V is for Vanilla, a flavor included in many teas.
W is for Water – what you need to make tea, unless you like eating the leaves; some people do.
X is for Xylose, what diabetics use to sweeten their tea. Also known as “I’m scraping the bottom of the bucket here”.
Y is for Yoga, an activity that many tea drinkers partake in. I’m not one of those people.
