Ok. I’ll admit it. I’m not a morning coffee person. Not at all. To some, coffee is an essential drug, it’s their energizer, to get them through the day. For me, coffee it’s just a nice, sweet method to having little chatty times with friends and family.
I am not a morning person at all. I wake up after hitting snooze at least 3 times on my alarm mobile application (I tend to be a little dependent on my mobile phone). I find my way to the bathroom almost like I would be blind. Then I go to my beautiful son and try to wake him up, even if I am not totally awake. I kiss my husband goodbye when he goes to his job. As I drive my son to kindergarten I start to feel myself alive, I start to wake up. But the real thing that makes me feel really awake is my tea, my black tea. I am not a coffee person, but I could say that I am a tea person. I LOVE tea and its diverse aromas.
My black tea gives me my necessary dose of caffeine. It’s my much-needed energizer. Without it, I could not start my day. Of course, there are days when I don’t drink my morning tea, but I don’t feel like myself the whole day. If I don’t drink it in the morning, I sometimes drink it when I have the chance during the day and I start feeling more alive after I do.
This doesn’t mean that I don’t drink coffee. I drink coffee from time to time, but not as my daily morning booster. I like my coffee to be sweet (I like to have a little bit more sugar in my drinks). When I need an evening booster and I know I have to finish a project by the next day I’ll have a strong espresso. When I just want a coffee flavour I’ll have a cappuccino. And I must tell you that my favorite place to drink my coffee is at the coffee shop or on my balcony in the summer breeze.
So, tea is what makes me start my day and coffee is my late energizer.
