Putting tea on our blog may be a mistake.
We love coffee and thinking about drinking tea seems like cheating on the boyfriend you've been dating since high school. Some will say "go out with different guys, see what else is out there." But we know what is out there, and we are passionately in love with what we have.
The purpose of this post is two-fold: to give our non-coffee drinking readers a taste goodness and to give some options if your current coffee relationship is on the rocks.
Sometimes it only takes one date with a new cup and you remember why you liked the old one.
Here are comparable coffees to tea.
