In praise of tea

October 5, 2011

I am, it seems, something of a creature of habit.

    Tea has absolutely gone wild in Toronto! There are shops that just sell ONLY tea; bags, cups anything and everything to do with tea! One if the universities in Toronto are even offering a course on how to become a Tea Sommelier! Go figure!

    I only ever have coffee when we are out but it is tea all day every day at home – milk no sugar thanks.
    Have a happy day.
