Well, I chose other becuase my story is slightly different. I had always been a tea drinker in the since that I loved iced tea and really liked that Arizona Green Tea that they sold in the 7-11's in my area. True, they dont really taste like green tea, but they are still good. In my senior year of highschool I accepted admission to the College of William and Mary, known for its rigorous academics and high stress related suicide rates.......I had always read things such as "Chewing cinnamon gum will help you retain 30% more information while studying, etc." So I bought a buch of Big Red cinnamon gum before I went to school. Once I got there I also read in one of my classes (within the 1st week of freshman year) that green tea aided in memory retention. So....when I went up to the store to get some food I saw some green tea bags on sale (100 for about 3 bucks) and a travel mug....I thought to myself "This will be perfect for me to take to my labs, etc.." I started drinking it and like ing it alot and then about a month later I was talking another resident on my hall and he drank tea as well. He told me about a store right in Colonial Williamsburg that sold loose leaf tea. So, the next day I went up there (the place was called "Steeps"....it is no longer there) and purchased a mug infuser, 1oz of sencha, 1oz of dragonwell, 1 oz of dragon pearls, and 1 oz of white peony, and regrettably, 1oz of gunpowder.......I got backto my room and brewed up the gunpowder and even that compared to the tea bags was amazing, then I tasted the others and pushed the gunpowder aside. It has been TEADAY every day since then for me!
