Post-Portland: tea, tea, and more tea
One thing that happens when you live in someone else's house for any significant time is that you start eating like them. And cooking like them. And drinking like them.
This is definitely a good thing, especially when said someone elses have a big box of Tetley tea bags and a jug or two of whole milk in the house at all times.
I started drinking many gigantic mugs of serious black tea with milk, and I like it.
I like it so much that I bought a second box of tea for the house at approximately the 1 week mark of our stay in Portland.
Now that we're back home, we went to the store and got a box of Tetley and another of PG Tips, largely because the only Tetley in said store was decaf. I got some of it anyway, because another thing that definitely happened in Portland is that my caffeine intake went through the roof, but still.
We also bought a quart of whole milk. I can't remember the last time I bought any amount of whole milk that wasn't immediately destined for a white sauce.
I've had approximately three cups of strong milky tea in the ten or so hours since we were at the store. There looks to be at least one more in my future tonight.
