Tea or Coffee?

Are you a tea drinker or a coffee drinker?

Well….I am BOTH! And with lots of variety and methods of making both!

I tend to choose coffee over tea more times than not. The smell is what gets me. I LOVE the smell of coffee!!! Even though I love coffee, I think the smell is so much better than the taste.

Living in two foreign countries, We drank a lot of tea in China, and a lot of coffee in Brazil. It’s really hard for me to choose one over the other. In China, there were just so many interesting and unusual varieties and flavours. They make tea from pretty much anything…it was fun to experiment and taste. In Brazil, cafezinho was EVERYWHERE! Little shots of great tasting coffee, especially if you could get it without the liquid sugar. So I really enjoy both!

The problem is, I don’t think so much caffeine agrees with me. I am forever struggling with too many cups in a day. I try and cut back on coffee ( and drink mostly tea) BUT then I smell a good cup of coffee…and on days like today when it’s a little dreary and a little rainy…there’s nothing like a great cup of coffee ( and a good book)

What is your choice of hot beverage? Coffee or tea?

Happy Weekend!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.

  1. Your counter looks just like mine!!!! I could talk coffee alll day long. I can’t imagine how good the coffee was in Brazil. What a dream! I like tea, but I have to be super in the mood for it. Ever since I went to India I crave chai with milk. Every afternoon at the orphanage we worked at we would have some and I have craved it ever since. Such a nice treat. And I totally agree- NOTHING beats a good cup of coffee with a good book on a rainy day!
