I will admit I am not much of a tea drinker, or at least I wasn’t. But, now I quite enjoy a cup of warm tea once or twice a day. Try drinking tea just on Saturday and see if you can learn to like it. Teas has some awesome health benefits, especially white and green tea varieties. Opt for the most organic with the least amount of preservatives to get the most benefits.

It is a great way to start a morning, or end a day.
