Did you know that tea used to be a delicacy? Yup!
Tea is a beloved beverage and has been for the longest time.
I’ve loved tea for as long as I can remember. When I was little, it was sugary, milky black tea made even sweeter by dunking a ridiculous number of biscuits in it. Slowly, as I grew and my taste buds matured, the amount of sugar decreased and the number of cups drunk in a day grew – sharply.
Tea has always been something of a comfort object for me. Curling up with a large mug and a good book is one of my favourite things in the world – second only to the rush of buying a stack of new books.
But I digress.
There was a time when I stopped drinking tea completely. You see, I’d just discovered coffee and I was madly in love. So tea sort of fell by the wayside for a little while. Now, though, I drink both tea and coffee and love them each in different ways.
…I have very strong feelings about beverages.
What’s your favourite drink?
