Certainly in our family we seem to drink an excessive amount. So comforting and satisfying. However we all have our favourite teas and I know that when we travel abroad the one think I really crave is a cup of home brew!
It was no surprise today when my daughter sent me photos of her son my grandson making pretend tea. He has done this for quite a while but today even more so as he received a kettle as a present and he was over the moon and of course had to test it out! Looks like he has poured several cups - he knows the demands of his audience!
Tea has helped me, friends and family providing a vehicle for conversations and confidences. It provides an excuse for a gathering.
Even the after dinner coffee has been increasingly replaced by tea!
