If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea

If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea on this grey and damp day, we would talk about the change of seasons, and how it really feels like autumn now.  But still the autumn flowers are blooming, and there have been some wonderful skies again. We would look at the weather in Europe, and think how cold it looks in Stockholm and Copenhagen, and how late spring has come there this year.

If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would talk about how the cooler weather makes you feel like being indoors, enjoying cups of tea, watching movies and being cosy.  We agree that candles are a necessity, though we note that people here don’t use them as much as in the Nordic nations.

If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would be sipping t leaf T‘s pina colada green tea, so refreshing and full of flavour. We would talk about baking, about food, about the weekend ahead. We would talk about how we were hoping it wouldn’t rain for the Cuba Dupa street festival.

If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…I would instead pour you a glass of wine and ask you to stay to dinner, as always.
