just my cup of tea

One luxury I was prepared to do without in the Philippines was my morning cup(s!) of tea.
I was under the impression before we arrived that Filipinos were typically coffee drinkers, and I knew that my options might be pretty limited.

So when I walked into Gaisano Grocery Store and saw this display, I was speechless. This is more tea than I've ever seen in any one grocery store in the U.S.
Stash. Lipton. Good Earth. Tazo. Twinings.
What an unexpected blessing!
