Sometimes when I go and meet new people and they ask me what I would like to drink and I answer “tea, please” , I get a funny look. No, I don’t drink soda, there is just way too much sugar in there for me. No, I don’t want juice, yes if it is freshly made from real fruits. No thank you, I don’t want any coffee. On a rare occasion I do, but than just black please.
I know it might sound weird, but I usually drink tea throughout the whole day. In the morning I prefer a hot cup of tea to start my day and in the evening a warm cup to wind down and get ready for bed time. In between specially right now, when it is so hot, it can be a tea over ice. I don’t do sugar in my tea either, and my kids think I am weird. They don’t like drinking tea at all. At home growing up, my parents only drank tea for every day, but when we had visitors the coffee was brewed from fresh beans. I loved that smell. The taste of the coffee is not so much mine.
I do love me a good cappuccino, but only once or twice a year, because the milk in there will send me into a different realm and I will certainly always regret drinking one.
So in Germany when I met up with friends at the corner street coffee,
to catch up or just hang out and enjoy their company, then I ordered tea. I miss those times, just to be able to walk down town to sit there on the street watching people go by, listening to the street noises or just to watch what is happening. Or to go to the coffee place in the park, enjoying all the green and the birds. You can find a little Cafe pretty much anywhere, oh and often they had a really good cake section too.
and they have this cute little Cafe in there. We spent there quite a bit of time sipping on coffee and tea and talking.
Where is your favorite place to enjoy a cup of something warm?
