I would die without tea. I realize I made smoothies sound like the end all earlier, but seriously, tea is where it's at. Need some caffeine? Tea. Don't want coffee breath? Tea. Want to impress that guy in the cubicle next to yours with some really herbal, zen mannerism? Tea. No joke, you'll turn into an exotic enigma, possibly laden with an ironic beard. 

Take that, cubicle guy.

Anyway, one of the best teas I've come across is a gunpowder green. This variety of green tea leaf is rolled so that, believe it or not, it looks like gunpowder. Following that theme, the flavor is slightly smoky, too, and one of the stronger varieties of green. It's a great punch in the winter morning. I haven't tried it yet, but it'd probably be nice iced, sitting on a porch at dusk, watching sparrows flit back and forth and listening to crickets chirrup in the long grass. 

Or something like that, you know, whatever floats your tea boat.
