Honey and Tea

This post is going to make me appear either as a granny stuck in a guy's body or a domestic daddy wannabe.

If I can have it my way, I'd use the real, all-natural honey that's not sold in supermarkets. But this one is the closest I can get living in Manila. Back home, we'd occasionally get good honey as a pasalubong from an uncle who lives in Romblon.

I love honey because you can use it for so many different things---plus I like to believe it's healthy.

I was never really a tea person until a few months ago when I bought a box of Twinings. Does it come with age? It tastes exactly how I remembered it to be but I didn't hate it. In fact, I now ask for refills whenever I'm in a Chinese Restaurant. The strongest tea I've had is The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf's version of genmaicha. It's so woodsy and a little nutty. Not exactly my type but it's perfect when you want to lose weight if you know what I mean.

Tea with honey and biscuits or cookies is a great midnight snack on a quiet night methinks. My friend Rica thinks it's very English of me. Hahah... I just like how it fills you up but still keeps you feeling light and not bloated. I'll try the iced version soon.

Good night!

  2. A Mariah fan I see. Hahah...
