Growing up in a house with an avid black coffee drinking father and a caffiene intolerant mother tea played a major role in my relationship with my grandmother. Every visit she would have a new lineup for us to sample and we’d spend hours sitting at the kitchen table playing cards and sipping away.
Nowadays I continue our ritual. With every new tea I talk to my Nonie, let her know what I think of it. And recommend she give it a try if she can, wherever she may be.
