What’s your poison?
Coffee, tea or Me?
Way back in the ’60s this was the favourite question my parent’s friends would ask one another when invited home for a cup of tea.
This was a sly allusion to the racy book of the same name, purportedly written by two air hostesses.
I didn’t read this book myself but remember people asking one another if they’d like coffee, tea or……. followed by a wink and a snigger before choosing tea or coffee.
Plus ça change, plus ça ne change pas!
Lots has changed since that book was published. For one, air hostesses are now flight attendants. Supposedly this bland job title prevents any unsavoury and inappropriate overtures made to them.
But on the other hand, some things haven’t changed. I’ve heard for instance, that all working women have experienced some kind of harassment some time at least once in their working lives.
However, lots of things HAVE changed.
Coffee and tea, for a start, have changed too!
They are no longer just plain old coffee and tea. You can now get coffee from India, Africa or South America. Tea comes from Sri Lanka and India as well as China. They are sourced from a single estate or multi-sourced. And it can be decaffeinated too.
You can brew it for hours and sweeten it with sugar.
Or you can dip a tea bag and let it steep for a bit.
You can have it black or you can have it white.
You can have it fermented ( Pu’er ) or have it just green.
You can flavour it with vanilla, lemon or tulsi
Or carry it with you in an instacuppa thingamajig.
But one thing’s for sure: it’ s the cup that always refreshes – coffee or tea!
So for any time tea or anytime coffee, get yourself an Instacuppa FrenchPress Travel Mug that’s perfect for both black coffee and tea!
Now that I’ve identified my perfect coffee, I’m going to get myself my instacuppa travel mug and French Press so that I can have the same cup of coffee anywhere I go!
