I drink enough tea. I'm Sri Lankan, after all.

I had no idea Sri Lankans were avid tea drinkers.

Well, I'm not technically a Sri Lankan. I'm a Canadian, but tea is the #1 export in Sri Lanka (unless Tamil refugees has taken that spot...) and everyone there drinks tea. You go to someone's house, they have to make you tea. It's like a tradition for Sri Lankan families.

I drink a lot of it myself. Usually, I'll have one in the morning, and one when I get to school. I need to cut down, the school tea is getting expensive.

So do I for the most part. I may occasionally have a cup of green tea at the local Japanese restaurant.

There's a tea place a short walk from my LCS. Some friends and I go there nearly every Saturday after the store closes. They serve great tea - regular and bubble milk - and the food's pretty good too.

Will they give hot water out for free if you bring your own mug? I've done that, and carried a yerba mate or tea bag with me. Sucks, though, when I wanna make green Earl Grey.

I drink it a few times a week but I'm going to start making a gallon to drink more. What's the tea used to make iced tea? That one's my favorite. I tried white tea once but didn't like it, it might have been the pomegranite.

I don't know. I doubt it. It's UofT we're talking about. If they could, they'd charge you for using the toilet.

I don't even do that. It's been years since my last warm drink.

I wasn't aware tea was a major export for Sri Lanka. But I learned that today when I went to the international foods store. About half the tea in stock was from Sri Lanka.

I didn't buy much today. Just some tamarind candy. Never had any before. The lady told me it's sweet and tangy.

Have you tried it yet? I don't like them.

I could go for a cup of tea right now though.

Haven't tried it yet. I'll wait for a special moment.

I love tamarind candy, a lot of Mexican candies are made out of tamarind. Mmmm, Pulparindo.

Green tea is great, but if you add sugar you're doing way more harm than the health benefits you'd normally get.

Tried some tamarind today. And it's not bad. Though they may have put a bit too much sugar on it.

Didn't expect the seed to be so hard!!! :smt013
