About Me and My Tea.
How would I manage without my first cup of tea in the morning!.
It just doesn’t bear thinking about!
Sometimes I go to bed thinking about my cup of tea on waking and well, Mmmm……. what shall I have with it!
I know l feel so much better after I have sipped and enjoyed my first cup, (mug) of this beautiful brew. It replenishes me, makes me feel whole again and if I over indulge, (God forbid!) Well I am renewed with two cups of tea and a poached egg on toast. Yum!.
My love of tea goes back to my Mum and Dad and so often this is the case, don’t you agree? Isn’t it the same with all of us! We inherit a love of things, that really when we think about it, have been a part of our childhood, our growing up, without even consciously realizing it and this relates also to our taste in foods and drinks.
Mum was never a great cook, I believe she never actually liked cooking, but she was very aware of giving us healthy, if not quite plain food and of course when we were considered old enough, tea. Now I wonder what we did before we were offered tea, well I shall have to ask my Big Sister! Water, of course, milk, yes, I always loved a big glass of cold milk and a couple of granita biscuits, with cold butter on them as an after school treat!
But oh, hang on, Mum was into fruit drinks, came in a can way back then, no sugar added! Her favourite was pineapple, I can still taste it, cold and with ice!
Gosh did we love getting to Nana’s house and having Fanta!
My Website is about the history of tea, the rituals of tea, now and in the past, the varieties of tea, the benefits of tea, recipes with tea and just the pure love of a good cup of tea, enjoyed in good company and the love of a beautiful cup, full of this very special liquid to enjoy it from.
I hope you enjoy my Website and my journey about, ‘all about tea’!
