If you had to pick one only hot beverage to drink for the rest of your life, what would it be? Coffee or tea? I wouldn’t want to have to choose!
Coffee is easy.
Coffee is go go go.
Coffee is wake me up and keep me going.
Coffee isn’t fussy. Coffee does her job in mugs, flasks and paper cups.
Coffee can be black, white, frothy, cheap or real. Sweet or bitter.
She is a dance partner for vanilla, cream, chocolate, toffee and ice cream.
She loves a dunk. A rusk or just buttery bread.
Coffee is quick, moving, grab on the go.
But tea – ah… tea.
Tea is pure.
Tea is ritual.
Tea is soothing.
She is specific. Ceylon and China only.
Tea is same. A drizzle of cold milk, less than a teaspoon of sugar. Hot and strong. Always the same.
She is soul. She is calm.
Tea fixes. Just putting the kettle on for tea is the beginning of the solution.
Tea is slow and calm.
And Rooibos – never ever!
