Looking back on my attitude towards certain foods, I feel like the girl in the Pediasure commercial. If you’ve not seen it, there is a mother and daughter walking through the grocery store and the little girl says she doesn’t like _______ as her mom picks up that item. The worst is, “I don’t think I like waffles” in a snotty tone. I worried I would wind up with a child like that and have to resist the urge to smack her. Okay, I wouldn’t really smack her, but parents understand what I mean, I hope. Tonight, I realized I’m the one who is like the little girl. I won’t try many new things unless one of my few “trusted people” tells me to try it. I may love it, but I freak about even trying it.
For most of my life, I haven’t liked tea. I only tried it a couple of times and didn’t care for it. My good friend, Heidi, told me to try Bigelow or Stash, just once. Since she is on the trusted list, I bought some Bigelow Vanilla Chai. Not bad, but not my favorite. The next time I went to the store, I bought a box of Stash Lemon Blossom. It was much better! And that cup was all it took to get me addicted. Next, I bought a sampler pack. Each night, I have been trying a new tea, including ones that sound like I won’t like them because I don’t know how one of the components tastes. I have yet to find one that I don’t like!
I’m truly grateful to Heidi for her tea wisdom. I feel a summer cold coming on and a cup of Lemon Blossom is just what the doctor ordered!
Any tea drinkers out there want to recommend something for me to try?
