I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the French have an obsession with tea. I was expecting to drink lots of coffee but no! They enjoy a cuppa just as much as the English. They are very passionate about it too.
I drank some beautiful tea in Lyon, France. It was in a traditional Chinese tea room with a French twist. Very extraordinary and unique.
It was very delicious and refreshing and felt much healthier than drinking a strong coffee or espresso.
To prove my theory about the French’s obsession with tea, a friend sent me this interesting article about France’s Silent Tea Revolution an interesting read.
Who knows, in the future coffee will be no more and tea will be the normal accompaniment with a croissant!? Watch this space….
