Tea Haul.

Tea or coffee? – In my case I don’t need to hesitate to answer that question. I love a iced mild coffee, but tea comes first and foremost. With the complex blends and infusions that tea manufacturers produce it can take some pondering as to which tea to purchase. Which flavour combinations harmonise well? Honestly…

Until our last days we observe to gain understanding, continuously engaged…
