Ceylon Orange Pekoe. I got hooked on it in Paris. :)
And hello, I am happy to see you're still around here! I was just thinking recently about the people like you I've known longest here, it's been an interesting 6 years.
The main reason why I drink it that way is fairly boring, I avoid sugar during the day because it makes me unable to concentrate.. though I do enjoy the unadulterated taste of black tea, to taste it properly. :)
I've enjoyed your food porn lately, I haven't posted any for so long.. need to remedy that!
I've never had tea with cream, though it reminds me of when I was younger and read/heard about "cream teas" and always thought it meant putting cream into tea instead of milk, had no idea scones were involved and the cream was in fact the clotted cream you put on the scones. :)
The new Air album is lovely, though I don't think it's as quite as good as Talkie Walkie or Moon Safari. Still great listening and Neil Hannon and Jarvis are surprising collaborators! I know they, with Air, worked with Charlotte Gainsbourg on her latest album too, guess they're all close friends? ;)
good stuff and what a lovely cup, lady!
i used to drink tea with milk no sugar - but then i spent a couple of weeks in England and the family i was with always made me a big mug o' with lots of sugar and milk....so.
these days it's soymilk and usually no sugar.
life is so interesting, eh? (is tea life?)
Macsen teases me about how British I've become in liking my mug of builder's tea whenever we've come back from travelling. Sometimes my family try to make it for me when I visit them in the states, but it's never the same.. maybe it's the water. ;)
Is tea life? I don't know, but it improves it. :)
This reminds me of the wonderful journal http://parisbreakfasts.blogspot.com/
She is an artist that does watercolors of teacups and posts photos of urban tea sellers.
I drink coffee in the morning and tea in the afternoon. Both black.
