Tea Time

Tea! We love them, we do. Bitter tea, herbal teas, tea with huge dollops of sugar, tea with milk, teh tarik (pulled tea?) - I drink them all! The only tea I won't drink, strangely is Zaini's favourite and that's Jasmine tea.
Sipping frothy green tea was nice. I felt genteel.
while enjoying with some confectionary, talking in hushed tone.

Maybe one day, I should go to a tea ceremony proper.  Maybe. I can't sit still and be quiet too long.
Making a pot myself and enjoying a cup in my room was nice.

What's your favourite cuppa? I do actually love my coffee, but coffee in Japan isn't for me. LOL

  1. That frothy green tea only available in Japan I think. Would love to try one.

  2. @VanillaSven,
    I dunno. But I think we can, by using green tea powder & tea whisk. Right?

  5. I think I like coffee better than tea, but I still drink lots of tea. Recently it has been Oolong tea and I add roasted brown rice for more flavor. During the summer, it's cold sweet milk tea with pearls. :)

  7. @foong,
    My pit-stops at Starbucks alway make me jittery for hours after, but I drink them regardless. XD

    I love all kinds of tea too! But sometimes Chinese tea selection can be a bit too funky for me. All those tea I was encouraged to drink in China. ;)

  10. @LR,
    Mmmm... coffee there must be yummy esp when it's almost like a culture there to drink coffee, right? :)

  11. (Mainland) European coffee takes some beating; my favourite place for coffee is Vienna, which has the unusual distinction of having driven off a wave of Starbucks.

    Still, my British upbringing causes me to default to plain English tea of the sort sold in bulk in supermarkets.

  12. I have recently become a tea drinker and at the moment I'm really into Green Teas with lemon. I do need to start experimenting and seeing what else is out there that will rock my boat!

  13. The Octopus,
    Haha... I remember that post of yours about those tea bought in bulk. Managed to dump them somewhere or did you managed to drink them all yet? XD

    My dad who has a quasi-English upbringing (what with living in Colonial era Malaya and all. Heh) still drinks tea, and that's what we were brought up to appreciate. :D

  14. @William,
    Yes, do! Plenty of tea out there to experiment. :)
