Tea time…

Posted on

Time for you and time for me,

And time yet for a hundred indecisions, And for a hundred visions and revisions,

Before the taking of toast and tea

 – T.S. Eliot

Did you know that George Washington invented instant coffee? No – not that George Washington. The one I’m talking about was a Belgian man living in Guatemala in 1906!

Studies have shown that hot chocolate may be good for the brain, especially as we grow older. It can increase the flow of blood to the brain, which provides increased energy, leading to improved cognitive ability. It is important that you select your brand carefully – it is the cocoa that helps, not all the artificial flavours and sugars.

If you are cold, tea will warm you; If you are too heated, it will cool you; If you are depressed, it will cheer you; If you are exhausted, it will calm you.

Cowboy coffee

Ever wonder how cowboys brewed their coffee over the campfire?

It is said that they put the ground coffee into a sock and submerged it into the pot of cold water, then heated the pot on the fire. When it was ready, they would pour it out and drink it. Must have added some interesting flavours…

Did you know that the idea of adding milk to coffee came from a French doctor in the 1600’s, who prescribed Cafe Au Laits for patients. Of course, some of us still like to drink it as it comes – strong and black!

The tradition of afternoon tea was supposedly started by the 7th Duchess of Bedford, Anna. She thought it would be a good idea to have something to ward off the hunger between lunch and supper. of course, this was also the perfect time of day to indulge in that famous, earlier invention of the Earl of Sandwich..!
