Confessions of an earl grey addict
I used to like the expensive stuff (Twinings) but because I drink so much of it, over the years I've had to buy the home brand version because I couldn't afford to sustain my habit.
On Monday mornings I'd go to playgroup and have a cup of tea. But one wasn't enough. I'd have to go back for another.
I'd visit a friend and enjoy the first cuppa. But start to wonder if it too rude to ask for another, an hour into our visit.
I don't have milk or sugar with it. That just wrecks the purity of the experience. I would branch out sometimes and enjoy Lady Grey or French Earl Grey for a treat. But for everyday purposes my friend was the 'Earl'.
I have survived the past two weeks and am coping without my real tea. But I don't think herbal is going to cut it as a substitute. What am I going to do?
PS Can't stand coffee. Strange - I know. And I'm a uni student.
