Yellow tag with a slice of mint



I am not a tea person, I usually consider flavorless and throat-drying. Yet sometimes, very seldom, I start to crave falafel-style tea, in the little armless glasses, with 3 teaspoons of sugar and one small mint leaf that sticks to the inside. I don’t think it would taste as good as what I have in mind and memory if I go make such a cup-of-tea right now. Why is it that certain surroundings, people, and instances, give your average cup of Lipton tea a completely different flavor?

  1. Well, if the guy who made the cup hadn’t washed his hands in while, your cup would taste alot different. Hehehe.

  2. Well I feel nescafe tastes like crap, yet I drink nescafe everyday, and I always imagine how good tasting it’s, but honestly when I’m drinking it I feel it tastes like crap, yet I keep drinking.

  3. falafel-style tea tastes great cause it’s not that clean :) The dirtier the better!

  4. Most Falafel places serve Ghazalain and not Lipton… and you’re right, while I don’t like tea, there’s something about it when you’re sitting at Hashem or Abu Jbara or Kalha :)

    Nice question Roba:)
    I can’t eat falafel sandwiches without a cup of tea even at home.
    and I love Nescafe!

  6. It’s not just tea. It’s any experience. I don’t like travelling at all, but with the right company, it can be lotsa fun.
