Coffee vs. tea

Since I am starting goalball training in a few weeks, I figured that now would be a good time to cut back on my coffee intake. I'm not sure if it's the coffee or the sugar I put in it, but I get really bad coffee crashes.

I have since rediscovered my love for tea. Any green, herbal, rooibos (AKA red) or fruit tea, I am game to try at least once. Black and white teas don't hold much appeal anymore... perhaps it's the sugar I feel I must put in to any of them.

The plus-side to all of this is that I get my caffeine in a hot beverage without the crash seeral hours later. My favorite right now is bamboo chutes green tea from Steeps (I need to find out if The Tea Place has something similar), Long Island strawberry green tea from Glenn's Tea House, and (the ultimate in making you feel better from the symptoms of a cold, a bad day, etc.) ecanasia (Sp?) Yurba Mate from The Tea Place.

Since the Tea Place is opening up a new location, they are having a sale on their teas next week. I'm determined to drink the stuff I'm low on and refill my tins.
