I want to know how to become a tea drinker before my 48th birthday on November 30th. This is not a lofty goal, but even goal setting is different in 2020.
Some of the best literary characters drink tea. Tea goes with my decor. Snacks are often involved, and I am a big fan of snacks. Most of all, though, I am old and can no longer handle copious amounts of caffeine. A simple coffee gives me chest pain! My heart thumps as if it is trying to dig itself out of an early grave.
I tried switching from coffee (always iced) to a soda in the morning but the soda upsets my stomach and is not as refreshing as I remember it. Does everything fun lose its appeal as we age?
The main reason I dislike tea is that it is best served warm, and I am not a fan of hot drinks. I feel that anything warm and liquid automatically catapults into the soup category.
Coffee makes my heart race. Soda upsets my stomach. Both give me heartburn! Learning how to become a tea drinker is my last hope because whether old or young, I will always need caffeine. This holds especially true in the time of corona. Advice most definitely appreciated.
