I just stopped coffee-- too much caffeine for me. And I LOVE hot chocolate, but that has too many calories for my weight loss goals.
I find if it is a tea like Earl Grey, Chai Spice, Chocolate Mint...one tablespoon of cream and a dash of sea salt makes a very satisfying drink at only 50 calories.
If it is a citrus tea--like anything that goes with lime, lemon, orange....a teaspoon of Coconut oil and a dash of sea salt makes it all the more yummy --still under 50 calories.
My favorite teas are herbal blends, or green or white tea. I like a lot of flavor, so the new Tea's I just tried today are fabulous.
They both are holiday teas from "Stash". The first is called "White Christmas" and it is made from white tea, peppermint and ginger root. I added a table spoon of cream and a dash of sea salt and it was so delicious.
The second is called "Christmas Eve"-- it is made with cinnamon, orange peel, spearmint, vanilla extract, orange oil, cinnamon oil and clove flavor. Also added the cream and dash of salt--very satisfying and I am not missing my coffee or chocolate milk at all.

Nope, I'm a coffee person through and through, just can't get into tea. Keep some around for my husband, who likes it when he has a cold or cough, or if I have company that likes a cup of tea. Tried to like tea though.
In my area we have a chain called Teavana that sells incredibly fresh, fragrant, high quality loose leaf teas. I absolutely love that store and have enjoyed many cups of delicious tea thanks to them (way better than bagged grocery store bought tea).

I love tea all year round, but especially when it is cold weather.
