Day 120 of My Italian Learning Journal*
Over the years I have sampled different varieties of tea. I am not a habitual tea drinker, but an occasional drinker of tea. Several years ago, when a few of my family members and I visited Tangier, Morocco, I had a great tasting cup of jasmine tea -- that trip was a lot of fun, and an opportunity to eat a variety of regional foods. I really like spiced tea blends, yet I tend to come back to jasmine time and time again. Chinese jasmine tea was first produced over 1000 years ago, during the Song Dynasty period in China (960-1279). The jasmine plant is believed to have been introduced into China from eastern South Asia. With the topic of tea, here is today's practice Italian script.
- Mi piace una buona tazza di tè caldo.
I like a good cup of hot tea.
- Per fare il mio tè caldo uso un infusore di tè di vetro.
To make my hot tea I use a glass tea infuser.
- Io zucchero il tè con cristalli di zucchero.
I sweeten the tea with rock sugar.
- La mia preferenza è il tè decaffeinato.
My preference is decaffeinated tea.
