Let me share with you the 340,293 reasons why YOU should drink tea

I need to let out a short rant, so here it is:

I don’t like tea.

I will drink iced tea on occasion, but on the whole, I don’t like tea.

Yes, I know the BAJILLION benefits of it. I’ve read it in magazines, I’ve heard it on tv, health conscious friends have told me. But I don’t like it, and I don’t want to drink it. I am genuinely trying and have been trying for a while to get into the tea craze. I went through a stint (during p90x, HA) where I was only drinking hot tea in the morning as my caffeine for the day (another HA). I thought I had turned into a tea drinker, but after about a week and a half I remembered how much it just tastes like nothing. Hot water with a little flavor. There are so many more wonderful drinks out there. Yes, I know, not with ALL OF THE PAGES of benefits of tea.

I really do want to be that healthy person. That person that just drinks tea and water, and eats organically and is just putting wonderful things into their body, but it’s not realistic and it’s not me, at least not right now.

So please, allow me to drink my water and coffee and diet coke. And someday, maaaaybe, I’ll come around to tea.

Can I get an amen?
