Tazo’s Earl Grey (tea bag format) was the one tea that got me through a week of instructing a martial arts kids camp. My body is very anti-mornings. Whatever it is about my chemistry, mornings are just not for me. Getting up to do a kids camp at 9am was a strain. Getting somewhere by 9am is bad enough, never mind that it’s to deal with high energy kids. Ugh. Don’t get me wrong. It was a good experience. It was even fun at times, you know, when the caffeine kicked in. But kids at 9am. Dude.
I was in “grab whatever caffeine I could find” mode, and I found a box of Tazo’s Earl Grey in my pantry. Not my favorite, but it met all the qualifications of having caffeine and being palatable.
