My Autumn Resolution

Sometimes Gracefully Ruche 1 Sometimes Gracefully Ruche 2

I woke up the other morning with a monstrous headache that felt like my eyeballs were somehow burying their painful way into the back of my skull, and my sweet but medically minded husband diagnosed me on the spot: caffeine withdrawals. We’re out of coffee, here at the Beekman residence, and my gosh we’ve only been without coffee for one day and just like that, eyeballs. into. skull.

Which tells me that I maybe/possibly/very probably drink too much coffee. Too often.

So I decided to slowly transition my way into the realm of tea. Herbal teas, teas with very little to no caffeine, loose leaf tea. I even bought a fancy steeper to do soooo much steeping in my spare time and tell people whenever prompted, “Yeah. I steep. What of it?”

And oh my gosh TEA, you guys. Loose leaf teas! I’ve been drinking this peach herbal tea from Teavana partly because it makes my apartment smell like a peach tree and most definitely because it tastes like these last few golden days of summer. And ever since I’ve been avoiding my eye contact with my coffee pot. As if I’ve committed some kind of morning-drink adultery. I’m not cheating on you, my Mr. Coffee maker. I just need a little break. Some time apart. It’s not you. It’s me. Really. And my horribly unhealthy addiction to the rich goodness that is your early morning French Roast.

So loose leaf tea! My new, early-morning jam and autumn resolution (see my “I’m super serious about this” loose leaf tea tumbler in photos above). And I recently ordered a few ounces of Teavana’s Pumpkin Spice Brule loose leaf tea (find it here on sale!) because fall is fast approaching, friends. And I mean to continue complimenting this comfy plaid top from Old Navy with a hot thermos of spiced tea leaves.

You can shop this look below! And your favorite tea flavors?! GO!

    I have been talking for ages about making the switch from coffee to tea, but I just can’t do it. I literally feel like an addict just thinking about it, like, I just can’t. And the thing is I don’t even drink fancy coffee or anything, just plain black coffee, so a nice peach tea would most definitely taste better right? I think I need to go somewhere nice like Teavana and just get the good stuff and do it already. And the headaches are SO REAL. That’s me by 9am if I’m not careful.

    David’s Tea is so good. They have a few stores in the US, but it probably best to try to order online.
