English Tea vs Southern Sweet Tea

Leave a comment

I’ve never really enjoyed hot tea.  I’m a southern girl.  We like it cold and sweet.

With all his trips over, Brian has come to enjoy a cup of hot tea in the evenings and he has been wanting to get me to change my ways so I can enjoy a pot with him.

So, I had my official first English cup of tea at the Chatsworth Farm Shop Cafe.  We sat outside on the patio which overlooked fields filled with sheep and their new wee lambs.  The sun was shining, a cool breeze blowing, and you could hear the lambs calling their mommas.

After about 4 cubes of sugar, I could drink my cup of not-so-bitter tea.

I’ll stick to my Southern sweet iced tea.

Sorry, Phil!

Living thru faith,
