3,355: Tea

without comments

Here’s something I thought would never happen: I think I’m slowly switching to being a tea person in the morning. I’ve been a coffee person for as long as I can remember. Instant coffee at home, something from the art school vending machine, instant coffee at the office, cappuccino from local cafes in Berlin, or from Starbucks in Mexico City, and in the last few years, via a cafeti√®re or Bialetti Moka thingy.

Tea is something I remember drinking as a youngster, but at some point in my mid-teens I stopped, didn’t really like it, and never bothered with it again until about five years ago when I was a little bored of coffee being the only hot drink option aside from the occasional Ovaltine.

I bought some Earl Grey and forced myself to get used to it. It didn’t take too long. A couple of weeks, I think. I got used to it, and then started to enjoy it. Just English Breakfast and Earl Grey, though. I’ve never enjoyed the fruity tea stuff. Smells like someone’s making jelly.

But for the last couple of weeks, instead of automatically making coffee when I get up, I’ve found myself making a cup of tea. It’s still more coffee than tea. But out of the last ten first-thing-in-the-morning-drinks, I’ve had tea four times.

This got me thinking: do our tastes keep on changing? I don’t think it’s too presumptuous to assume most of us make most of the changes we’re gonna make in our twenties. When we try something again as an adult for the first time in ages. In my head, I don’t like rhubarb. But I’ve not eaten it since I was a teenager. Dates and plums, too. Maybe I would like them now. I still can’t get my head around chicory, but if it’s in a salad, I’ll just get it down and out of the way.

But yeh, a minor thought. Nothing big or spesh today. Just a quicky blog post. Have a good weekend.
