I have been a tea drinker as long a I can remember. This past year a made the decision to schedule a 15 minute break in the mid morning and mid afternoon and REALLY ENJOY a cup of tea. I like black tea with a dash of milk for the morning and strong herbal chai with milk and a dash of sugar in the afternoon. I also made the decision to upgrade my mismatched, chipped tea cups, creamer and sugar, and tea pot. I had received some tea from Tea Forte as a birthday present last year. I started looking around the Tea Forte website and decided that I liked what I saw. I placed some orders for different types of tea as well as cups, tea pot, tray and sugar and creamer. I reordered the black tea sampler, loose tea pouches, and the loose leaf Chakra Tea Trio as these varieties are two favorite groups of teas. The teas are strong enough to re-use the leaves once or twice. I set up a space in my office and now I relax just looking at my Tea Forte corner.
