Poly put the keyy;e on
« on: September 15, 2005, 04:55:38 PM »
 
Up until the nineteenth century England's tea trade was with  Macao and Canton in China, and Deshima with Japan. Japan are the seventh largest tea producers in the  world. It was the British Empire who created tea  plantations in India and then Ceylon eg Sri Lanka.  Assam tea is a land of a thousand gardens. The Assam  region covers the valley of the Brahmaputra river in
northern India. Have you tried my favourite scented  tea Earl Grey ?  Most people drink tea in England.  Every morning begins with a pick-me-up cuppa. Tea  drinking is a national obsession, so much so, that  we have the English word teetotal. Most tea drank in  England today is black or Indian tea. Would you  believe that England are the second largest tea  drinkers in the world. The French have their cheese  and wine parties, the English have their tea  parties, made popular by the Duchess of Bedfordshire  1788-1861).

Personally I love a good cup of tea.  Not Earl Grey though...I like Tetley.

And coffee is good too...I especially like a good cup of coffee in a restaurant after a delicious meal and glass (or two) of wine.

Ha Ha...though it's delicious, it does not have the power a good cup of coffee does.

I'm not a great tea lover. From two definitions of poverty, to be with out my black filtered coffee in the morning is a cardinal sin.  Or to eat cooked food with out tomato sauce. There are still plenty of people in England that lack taste buds.

 I met a few people from Kenya that were here in Minnesota. They brought their own tea with them from Kenya and offered me a cup. It was wonderful !! This was loose stuff ,not in the bag and it had ginger in it to warm your insides on a cold winters night. Lots of flavor for tea. They told me that they could get it in England somewhere.
Sorry I don't know the name of the tea and they are no longer in the area to ask.

I like jasmine tea at a local vietnamese restaurant as well.
Not a coffee drinker though.

I drink Earl Grey tea, no milk or sugar. But if I had the chose I would drink the tea with out his name on the packet. Early Grey spear-headed the reform of the English public house. What has that achieved ? It has created twenty first century ghost towns like Brentwood in Essex.
