Something you may not know about me is that I'm a member of the Tea Party. No, I'm not talking politics here... I'm talking hot-beverage-of-choice!
My Irish grandmother had a different theory. “Its all because of the water,” she would often say. “The water in Ireland makes better tea, but the water here makes better coffee!” (She drank copious amounts of both, by the way.) My parents were, and still are, big coffee-drinkers… there was always a pot percolating on the stove when I was growing up. I do love the smell of coffee, there’s just something about it that makes me a little queasy when I drink it. Too many cups guzzled during late-night study sessions in college, perhaps? In any case, I find myself drinking tea almost exclusively these days.
That may not be such a bad thing, though. Tea is loaded with
healthy antioxidants that help prevent certain chronic diseases and certain types of cancer. But I must say that I’m always especially grateful that I’m a member of the “Tea Party” when I visit Walt Disney World. My coffee-drinking friends tell me the cuppa Joe served by The Mouse is somewhat less than, er, magical!
What's in your cup?
