Recently, my workplace began providing free herbal tea, coffee, and hot chocolate during the workday to their employees. There was a time in my life when I was a heavy duty coffee drinker and I will admit that smelling those cups of coffee next to my coworkers in meetings all day can be a distraction. Sometimes a big distraction. There was a time in my life when I did not attend church. I smoked, I drank alcohol, I watched rated r movies, and I drank coffee--lots and lots of coffee. Of all of those habits that I needed to forsake to come back into the fold, coffee was the most difficult for me. I'm not sure why. I have not succumbed, however. I worked too hard to quit it and I'd only have to quit again, so.
My question today is on herbal tea. I have been drinking herbal tea. Usually one or two cups a day. I have done this in the past and know some other members who do. When I questioned it within myself I thought, well, I just won't drink flavors that have caffeine. But then, what sense does that make? I drink soda with caffeine. I then went to lds.org to attempt to find counsel on this matter with no luck. So---is it okay? Is it not??? Usually my advice to folks is that if you have to question it, you have your answer. But do I? Does it even matter? I mean it says tea, but does that mean black tea, sweet tea, herbal tea, all of the above??? What do you guys think? Do you drink herbal tea???
