I know Kitten! Life with less tea is hard.

However, I’m having to cut down due to some worrying blood test results so no-one is really at fault. I’m just hoping that, with treatment, I can get back to having a few more cups each day. It really is my saviour lol! In the meantime, I have switched to drinking decaf coffee (which I am able to drink with no sugar, if necessary) ginger tea with lemon (lovely and warm) and hot cordials every other drink. It’s only been a few weeks (seems like an eternity) but I am gradually getting used to it.

I took me 50 years to give up sugar in my tea but, like you, I cannot bear it with sweeteners in.If anyone tells me I have to give up Marmite, you will probably see the massive black cloud of misery from outer space haha.

The only thing to do is adapt. It’s SO hard but for me, being alive is worth the sacrifices I have had to make. But I have to remind myself of that everyday lol 😀
