Visited with friends today. They live a hundred miles away so we don’t see them often enough. While playing cards my friend asked if I wanted a chocolate espresso. I turned up my nose a little. He said how about some hot tea. It was this one. Of course I never turn down Earl Grey.
He had a kettle and heated the water then he got out a 16oz insulated tumbler and one bag! I asked, don’t you have a cup. He said he didn’t want me to run out. Having lost the cup argument I said – Fine. He put the bag in until the water turned lightly brown – maybe 10 seconds (and I am being generous). Took it out and started to throw it away. I yelled at him, put that back in! He looked at me like I was crazy. I tried to explain but it was obvious it did not compute. No wonder he isn’t a bigger tea fan. He is only drinking colored water. I laughed about it all the way home. Yeah, it tasted as diluted as it sounds.
