Tea at grandfather’s today. Usually I do Copper Cow Coffee while I’m cooking and cleaning at his house but coffee can upset my stomach sometimes and my stomach hasn’t been happy the last couple days anyway, so it’s a tea day. Nothing fancy, just “grocery store fancy” black tea with some sweetened condensed milk in my big ceramic lined travel mug. I prefer it with a little maple sugar and half and half but I was trying to limit the amount of stuff I was dragging with me.
I don’t really consider this good black tea (good compared to the other grocery store blacks around here, though!) and I don’t like it plain but it’s decent with cream and sugar and maybe a couple cookies. Today’s cookies were Biscoff but it also works well with shortbread or digestives. I alternate between PG Tips and Taylors of Harrogate Yorkshire Gold for my basic blacks to drink with cream. PG Tips is slightly easier to find in my local grocery stores. I like that both brands seem to be pretty consistent. I’ve never had a surprise weird box of either of them.
