Coffee, Tea, or Me?

Posted on Updated on

lemony tea, yum!

As a concession to healthier living (natch!), I’m doing the math. Haha. The new math for me is less coffee = better health. Yeah, I am finally owning up to the minus points coffee has. Coffee inhibits calcium absorption, exacerbates my hyper acidity, stains my teeth. Oh well. So instead of downing several (more like lots and lots) mugs of the dark brew everyday, I’m replacing a few coffee cups with tea.

Tea is lighter, kinder on the tummy, and helps me relax. I don’t get the caffeine jitters so often now. I finally found the brand I was looking for, Twinings Lemon flavored black tea. It comes in a pretty box, and as the lemony scent wafts throughout my office, it makes the atmosphere seem light and airy. It’s so fragrant, it lifts my mood. Another upside, so I don’t scare away the people here.

Tee-hee. Or should I say, tea-hee?

    Yes, tea is better than coffee I guess
    But I don’t think I can get such flavoured tea here
    I must taste and smell so good

    ahay, you’re resigning from the coffee club? he he.

    jet used to be a non-drinker but he now eagerly slurps 24 ounces of it daily as protection against alzheimer’s (which runs in his family). partly, i sip it to combat parkinson’s (which runs in mine). sana, it could also be proven to fight cancer since it’s a great antioxidant source.

    basically, i still drink it for its “feel.”

    coffee drinkers should consider taking calcium or its supplements to battle the depletion

    zeroimpact: you’re in Malaysia, right? Don’t you have green tea there? It’s good too.

    Inday: (Mwah!) I’m not giving up coffee entirely, just cutting back on the habit, mainly because of the jitters and the acid. Daw stressed ko lately so I need to relax and unwind a bit and I fidn that tea helps me with that. Namit man na brands are Stash and Tazo they have peppermint tea and other flavors.

    Heehee but if you need to relax with coffee, you could always add cigarettes. (*whispers: “Bad cat! Bad!”*)

    Etts, nonfat but with all the trimmings, way to go, haha! I did reduce some of my coffee intake but I don’t think I can give it up either.

    You know I hope you, Franz, and I can meet up for coffee on your side of the planet. Soon, tani?
