Dandy Blend - It's awesome. You can fix it up just like coffee. I think it tastes WAY better than Teechino.

Yes I have a double-wide coffee pot on my counter (it brews espresso and can foam milk).

Interesting! It's not sold anywhere nearby. Maybe I'll try and get a friend to pick some up for me.

We drink hot water all the time. Seriously, hot water tastes... I don't know... almost sweet! I add a little honey sometimes, especially if my throat is sore or scratchy. We actually drink more water in the winter than the summer because it keeps us so warm.

Can you clean out the coffee pot and heat your water in that? Or replace it with a hot water pot if you're looking at giving up coffee entirely.

I'm kind of embarrassed to realize how much money I spent on coffee last month So I'm starting off by making a smaller pot of coffee in the morning.

I still haven't sent you that Dandy Blend. It's been in a baggie on my desk for a month. It got buried in Pure Romance orders.

How about wassail? I had no idea it was actually a drink until just a few days ago but it sounds delicious!! We're going to make some later this week, after our neighbourhood Christmas tree lighting. I plan to make it in the crockpot so it's waiting ready for us as we walk in the door. I'm going to try this recipe.

I love tea. I drink black or green varieties with truvia and half and half every day. And it's good for you.

Do I remember right that you have corn issues? (please correct me if I am wrong)....lots of teas have corn in them(esp. flavored ones) or it is on the bag.
