#8 - my day in cups of caffeine

Friday, November 08, 2013

Today's post has been inspired by The Simple Things magazine - and their monthly 'My day in cups of tea' article. I figure this is more interesting than hearing about my day at work!

  • When's your first cup of caffeine?
I start my day with coffee and recently splashed out on a Nespresso Machine. It's absolute bliss to make and drink in the morning when I'm just waking up. Following my morning coffee I tend to stick to herbal teas for the rest of the day. I currently have two favourites - Twinings Mint Humbug and Tazo Passion.

  • What's your preferred caffeinated-drink-making ritual?
Freshly boiled water and a cute teacup or mug. In winter I like my 'hug mugs'. Great for warming my hands on :)

  • Do you trust other people to make it?
Yes. I would never turn down a good cuppa if someone's offering.

  • Are you caffeine dependent?
No. I drink coffee in the morning because I love the taste. I only wish I could find a decent tasting decaffeinated coffee. I know some people say there's no difference, but there really is. I also love trying coffee and tea when I travel - most countries have their own take on how to best serve it.

  • Worst spillage incident?
When I was at university I managed to pour boiling water over may hand instead of into a tea cup. Needless to say I learnt my lesson - always keep your eyes on the extremely hot water!
