I’m not a coffee drinker (I love the smell of coffee though) but I do like a good cup of tea! I can’t function without a cup of tea in the morning (hubby is making me one right now). I don’t like all teas, just black tea with a bit of milk and one sugar. I'm not fussy!
On our honeymoon in the Seychelles, we were driving around on a cloudy day and stumbled across a Tea Factory. They grow tea in the Seychelles so we popped in and were shown how they make tea from start to finish, from collecting the leaves to putting them into tea bags. It was really interesting (honestly) seeing the full process. It's not something you really think about. I tasted some cinnamon tea in the little cafe but it was too bitter for me. I ended up buying a box of Vanilla tea to take back to the UK for everyone at work to try. I don't think they were too keen though. The box is probably still sitting on Lisa’s desk...or in the bin?
Before we left the UK for California, we had to go to London to visit the embassy for our Visa appointment. Whilst we were there, I’d booked us in for a Christmas tea at the famous Ritz Hotel. We had to get all dressed up otherwise they don’t let you in. The tea selection was huge, I opted for black tea though and we got loads of cakes and sandwiches, all very yummy. It was very expensive but worth it and it was another thing to tick off that bucket list.
My artwork today is simply 'Cup of tea':
What one thing do you need to be able to function each day?
