i must have my café au lait in the morning (as my brother once remarked, there's no point in trying to talk to me before i have
) but the rest of the day i drink tea. at home i drink it black, no sugar or milk, and depending on the time of day and my mood i like lapsang souchong, chaï masala, prince vladimir from kusmi tea (similar to earl grey), or maybe black tea like keemun, or else ginger tea (particularly in winter or if i'm feeling a bit under the weather). my father makes black tea with honey and with him i drink it the same way even though i don't take honey at home.
i can't drink coffee past lunchtime, it will keep me up, and in fact too much tea will as well so in the evening i drink non-caffeinated tea. my current favorite is a masala chai made with rooibos tea, i can't pronounce it but it tastes good ! sadly i finished the box so i'll have to go back to the indian neighborhood to get some more.
