I like coffee, I like tea.
I love the Java Jive, and
It likes me.
Coffee, tea, the java and me -
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup,
We once went to the ones Beach Marine Theater to see them perform, and many of the people in the audience were made up to look like them. Unfortunately, not enough tickets were sold, and it was canceled.
I bought a block of 10 tickets for my wife and our friends - there were 4 other paying customers. They offered to refund our tickets, and have the concert anyway, but I insisted that they keep the money, and everyone in the audience bought a lot of swag. The best part was spending 45 minutes just chatting with them.
Over the years I've graduated from being a predominantly tea drinker to drinking mainly coffee. I still have my cup of tea first thing in the morning after waking up though. Making tea in years gone by was a sort of ritual. The kettle had to be poured into the teapot (previously warmed of course), and right at the point of boiling. Then a quick stir and an allowance of time for brewing depending on your liking of what strength you prefer. Always pour the milk in first and then a tea strainer placed over the tea cup (not mug). The first pour was always desirable when pouring more than one cup. Now it's a tea bag in a mug which is quickly attacked by a spoon to squash out the tea, and then the milk. Not quite the same.
But drinking coffee is now a real experience and has progressed from a mug of instant to buying my coffee beans raw and home roasting to my own preferred recipe I remade from the one from perfectbrew.
