When I was young my mother started drinking hot water. Not hot water with tea in it - just hot water, straight. I thought she was rather weird. I mean, she drinks really weak tea as it is, but just hot water? Why?
Today, I forgot to put a tea bag in my hot water. Not sure why, but it had cooled too far to make tea by the time I noticed.....by taking a sip. You know, it tasted pretty good! Drank the whole 32 oz that way.
