Monday Mayhem - Tea Time

Welcome to my very first Monday Mayhem post where I’ll chat about the little things that make my life go round. Sometimes it’ll pertain to writing, as that is a big part of my life, but other times it’ll just be a snippet of life in general.


This morning as I type up the draft of this post, I’m sipping my morning tea. Lipton Original black tea. My favorite. I have other brands...more expensive brands, but for my first cup of the day, I always want my old favorite. Probably because my tea drinking passion started Lipton and in some psychological way, it takes me back in time. ;-)

Have you ever noticed how there is nothing better than that first cup of tea or coffee? And that first sip, oh that first mouthful is sooo good! So much better than the rest.  I’d give up breakfast and maybe even lunch before I’d part with my first cup of caffeine. ;-)

It’s the first thing I look forward to in the morning. Without that first cup of hot tea with a dash of sweeter and some soy milk, my day just wouldn't be the same.

So what about you? What’s your first “must have” in the morning? Tea? Coffee? A glance at the morning paper?
