An everyday luxury for me is a good cup of tea. It has to be one made with a good quality tea. My current favourite is Clipper tea. I like my tea to be what I would term medium strength: not very weak, but not a ‘so strong the spoon stands up in it’ cuppa either. In fact, if I don’t buy Clipper Tea, I tend to buy a stronger tea because I find that gives me a better flavour. I’m also rather impatient so the idea of having my tea brewed a bit quickly is very appealing.
I like a good splash of milk, but again I don’t like my tea nearly black and I find overly milky tea even worse.
I need a cup of tea to get me going in the morning and sometimes that’s all I have or need all day. On a bad day (or an especially early morning) I need two cups to set me up for the day. I also love a proper cuppa after a long journey or a busy day out of the house. It’s a great drink to chat to friends over too. The rest of the (day) time I tend to drink either herbal or fruit teas, but there are times when nothing but a real cup of tea will do.
Are you a tea drinker too? How do you like your cup?
