If you’re a single-serve kind of person, and you’d like to venture out and try something besides the Keurig, this is a wonderful way to begin.

Random insert here: See the vintage yellow coffee cup in this pic? I found it in my dad’s “collection”. It’s around 50 years old!

    OOOH! How I miss the smell and taste of coffee. I have been drinking herbal teas lately and they just don’t do it for me like coffee does. 🙂

      The smell of coffee is so good, isn’t it? I do like herbal teas also. And I am reading about adding food-quality essential oils to tea. What’s your favorite tea flavor?
