I had a sore throat. I wanted tea. No, I needed tea. Cups after cups of it.
“Please make me another cup of tea”, I asked the person who had accompanied us.
“We’ve run out of milk”, he said. “It’ll take me time to get some. Is that okay?”
“Then make it without milk. Or sugar. What I really need is the hot infusion.”
The brew came in kettle with mismatched cups. I took a sip and went straight to heaven- he’d squeezed half a lemon and chucked in some mint leaves.
Hot iced tea!
Sometimes the weirdest concoctions work.
