We are a family of tea drinkers.
I have been waiting years to say this!
I started writing this post ages ago but never found the occasion to finish it. Often I am captivated by a fragment of an idea; and it stays that way for a time. Sometimes a long while. Thanks to A Virtual Tea Party created & hosted by the lovely Su at zimmerbitch, this post is grown & birthed.
I am a sucker for most hot drinks, despite growing up in mostly hot & humid Singapore. Coffee used to be my drink of choice until it started to give me palpitations (courtesy of being pregnant with Older Daughter – the condition has persisted since). I love a good cup of dark hot chocolate – but I find most places put too much sugar in theirs. So, I drink mostly tea now. My go-to tea is any strong builders tea with milk.
Loving Husband and both daughters are also tea drinkers with their own particular preferences. Here are their favourites:
Feature photo depicts one of my favourite Singaporean breakfasts: Teh Si (strong black tea with evaporated milk; no sugar in mine, thanks!), kaya toast, soft-boiled eggs (Berseh Food Centre, 2019). We often run there on Sunday mornings and enjoy a leisurely tea/coffee as a reward for our exertions.
