As I’ve been trying to cut back a little on coffee—especially in the afternoon and evening—I’ve been drinking a lot more tea. At first, I was a little overwhelmed by the many possibilities and types, but I quickly realized this meant it’d be easy to find a tea to fit both the time of day and my needs. There are refreshing options, pick-me-ups, calming blends—really, any type of tea you can imagine.
