Coffee or Tea?

I have been a coffee drinker for decade 🙂 From instant coffee with cream and sugar, to off-the-shelf black coffee, to pour-over coffee, and now, brew coffee with manual espresso maker.

Yet, as much as I have revealed in the depths of this beloved beverage, there has been an intriguing newcomer that has caught my attention. Tea, long overlooked and under-appreciated in my daily routine, has recently piqued my curiosity. This shift can be traced back to two years ago, when I embarked on a journey to visit a tea farm in Thailand.

There, amidst the soothing ambiance of this ancient land, I was introduced to the sublime experience of sipping Jasmine Oolong tea, un exquisite blend of fermented and roasted leaves infused with the delicate scent of jasmine flowers. This encounter sparked a desire within me to delve deeper into the world of tea, to explore the diverse array of flavors, aromas, and brewing techniques that lay beyond my cup.

However, it wasn’t until recently that I discovered an intriguing intersection between coffee and tea – the ability to brew tea using coffee equipment. The ingenious coffee dripper from this article – Brewing Puerh Tea with the Clever Coffee Dripper, has opened up a whole new world of possibilities. By employing this clever tool, I have been able to enjoy the complex nuances of tea while maintaining the convenience and familiarity of my coffee-brewing routine.

As I continue on this journey of exploration, I find myself constantly drawn back to the timeless allure of both coffee and tea. Each sip offers a unique experience, a moment of respite amidst the bustle of life. And as I ponder over the question of which beverage reigns supreme, I realize that perhaps it is not about choosing between coffee or tea, but rather embracing the richness and diversity of both in my daily life.

In the end, I believe that there is a place for both coffee and tea in our lives, each offering its own distinct flavors, aromas, and experiences. So, let us raise our cups to the simple pleasure of these timeless beverages, and savor the journey as we continue to explore the intersection of coffee and tea. Cheers!
