Twinings Earl Grey Tea ($3)
The first thing you need to survive the cold season is some decent tea. "But I don't like tea" blah blah blah. Twinings Earl Grey is different. Here's the trick: boil the water first, then pour over your tea bag, which you will steep for no more than five minutes. Probably less. Don't squeeze the bag as you remove it: if you do, it makes your tea bitter. Now add half and half, and decadent amounts of sugar. If you do it right, this tea will taste, against all logic, a little like a cookie. Also, it will heal you. From Twinings.
