The prompt is to write either on coffee or tea but choosing any 1 from the two is very difficult for me so I am writing on both of them.
I am a coffee addict tea lover, I can have a coffee and immediately crave for tea in another five minutes at the same time.
These two beverages are the one to which I am intoxicated, I am a shy person, And if you tell me fifty times to eat anything I will pick once anything to eat but if it about tea or coffee I pick it at once or if you don’t ask me for, I will ask myself can I have a cup of tea or coffee ?
I don’t take coffee regularly, It is either once a month or twice but I rake tea regularly every evening and many times during winter mornings too.
I don’t take coffee more often because I get scolded by mom if I take excess of coffee and as mom is herself a tea lover she don’t scold me if I take tea 😂.
During childhood days I was a sincere girl, I never drank tea because I believed people who drink tea gets black. I was such obedient and innocent girl that I believed in all such sayings :p.
I never drank tea because of this reason but along with growing up I had to stay at hostel, and staying there was no less than staying in bars.
The food wasn’t good, I had classes from 8 a.m to 6 p.m so the only option to wake up in those chilled winter day was to drink ginger tea from the thadi next to hostel. This chai was a life Savior to me in those days, I kept running till the evening on this just 1 cup of tea and biscuits and this is how I developed the tea addiction in me
Apart from this I feel for tea and coffee like something very close to me as I have close relationship with Assam, I have seen those pretty ladies in Saree plucking the tea leaves one by one, I have seen the Tea and Coffee bagaans ( fields) shinning under the first ray of sun, I have seen the fog setting on the little leaves like vapour just as if they taken a shower in the chilled winter mornings. Those tea and coffee fields flourish with tea and coffee plants and at side during the noons A man sit with his wife eating the lunch she brings for him, their children play some games nearby.
I just love to see their little tea stories.
I love to see those coffee beans been fragranced in the Darjeeling hills.
And then observing those tea and coffee fields from the window of my nanny house were my most favorite pastime during the summer vacations.
Apart from the love and strength tea coffee gives me they also adds sweetness to the melodious music hours of my night, they give words to my poetry and they are like energy pills to me when I tired from the whole day stuffs, they instantly make me feel fresh and appealing personality. A good cup of ginger tea or dark black hot coffee cures my headache and relieves me too.
Over a Cuppa
