Coffee or tea or both?

     I have a love/hate relationship with coffee.  I love a cup or two in the morning and the caffeine jolt you get to start your day.  I hate that it has a diuretic effect.   A couple of months ago I had some masala chai at Royal Taj and loved its smooth taste.  When I found some instant version in the H Mart in Ellicott City I decided to buy it and alternate with coffee each day.

      One day I would have my Starbucks Via Instant ( a really great instant coffee) and the next day I would have the masala chai.  It didn't take me too long to wonder how mixing a little of each would work.

      I loved the combination!  Kinda like drinking half caffeine.
      So I was surprised to read in the Baltimore Sun this week that a company that makes a mixture of coffee and tea won a competition sponsored by Under Amour for entrepreneurs.  That company, Javazen, was started by a couple of former University of Maryland students who also wondered what it would be like to combine coffee and tea.  Who knew that I missed a business opportunity.
