Sounds very English? Or maybe I should say British? Perhaps not particularly French, either way?
I love tea! Earl Grey or peppermint ( or is that really an infusion?) but, above all, my tea tipple of preference, is good old ‘Builder’s tea’. There are no food or drink items I take to our French home, except for tea bags; not just any brand. For me, it has to be Yorkshire tea bags.
Don’t get me wrong, I love strong, black coffee, too. We always stock up for our return to the UK. However, I think there is nothing more comforting, thirst quenching and delightful than a cup of tea.
I’ve written of my need for tea before:
And the cake?
My sister tried a cake that I had never come across before: un Paris Brest.
Do you have a favourite tea and cake? I’d love to know…
