Hibiscus tea, I long for this I haven't come across it in a very long timeI find it interesting that tea means so many different things depending on the person or situation. Bagged or loose-leaf only; an infusion of fresh peppermint; Earl Grey with a slice of lemon; a blood red hibiscus and berry brew that infiltrates your mind with intrusive thoughts of randomly tripping over nothing, and freak accidents involving the mug handle spontaneously falling off while you walk over the carpet; chamomile and honey to calm yourself after the berry tea trauma; matcha that is only used for making ice cream twice a decade; a dark builders' brew with 3 sugars and half a biscuit lost to the bottom. But coffee is always coffee.
I mostly drink black tea with milk, no sugar. It's nice to have the other tea families available but the only type I think about longingly several times a day is the dark milky stuff. I guess that classifies it as a habit. Drinking a cup of Yorkshire tea right now. A small coffee is nice after an evening meal. There's no way I could drink it in the same quantity as tea.
