Following on from my last post about tea... I loved hearing about how people like drinking their tea. We also drink tea with mint in or cinnamon sticks..but for me, theres nothing like a strong brew with a Sainsburys tea bag, a little milk and two sugars. Tea calms me. I usually drink a couple of coffees and 3 cups of tea a day, but lately, ive found myself drinking (as well as the coffee) 5/6 cups of tea a day. Im finding it hard to focus..ideas spinning around, but nothing touched. An order for a painting which I cant get into...
As well as drinking tea, watching good films also help me relax.. and Ive finally seen Amelie!!! What a fantastic film. I love the idea of finding a box full of treasures and trying to find the owner of the box years later.
I also saw the film 'Te doy mis ojos' - 'Take my Eyes' - a spanish film about a woman who wants to escape her violent husband. A very sensitive film with excellent acting.

Have a great weekend everyone...

    Mmmmm... I love tea. I like orange pekoe black tea with a teaspoon of this raw sugar we have a friend ship to us from Germany.

    Tea calms me down, too. It does something for my soul.

    I also love tea and mate {a kind of tea, I guess you can say, from Argentina}. Some cream and honey.
    Isn't Amelie great? We have it and I like to watch it often.
    Thanks for the recommendation of the other film, I will have to rent it.
    Have a wonderful weekend Julie!

    I'm a tea person. I like my cuppa of asam with a good dollop of milk, no sugar. My caffeine free favourite is rooibos vanilla tea (http://www.dragonflyteas.com/products/dragonflyrooibos/index.php) with milk...but I don't mind as long as it's tea.
    I like the idea of tea swap suggested by bugheart :)
    Have a wonderful weekend by moonlight...

    Tea plus Amelie... perfect! I love the soundtrack to Amelie, I'm a complete sucker for a spot of piano accordion and the tinkling of the ivories. If you loved the film, I suspect you'd also love the soundtrack.
    take care, gracia

    Hello. I am also a tea lover. I am currently drinking the Marco Polo blend by Marriage Freres, but I love Harney & sons darjeeling. I always drink it plain - no sugar or milk - except when I have a cold. Then I drink it with sugar and lots of lemon or orange juice mixed in. Cheers to tea!

    i like my tea straight. when i lived in englad i learned to drink it with milk and sugar, but there is nothing to me like a good cup of jasmine tea plain and simple. i love the smell. and i love the taste.

    Your photograph is as delicious as the tea itself I'll bet!

    I am so glad you enjoyed Amelie. It is one of my all-time favourites :).

    Beautiful Photo! Amelie is one of my Favorites, Jeunet's films are wonderful to watch! So much work goes into the sets and the quirky characters! Have you seen "A Very Long Engagement"?
