The holidays have come to an end! It's fujisawa, which is overcast today. I received a tea report from Naoko for the first time in a while. It seems that Naoko has only one month left in England. Since I can't go abroad for a long time, Naoko's report, Isobuchi's story about Sri Lanka, and Ranjit's phone call... It's a moment when I feel like I've been overseas. There is only one month left in my stay in England. My days are fulfilling, visiting various tea shops and listening to various people's stories about tea. The other day, I visited York, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Harrogate, Birmingham, and Nottingham. York is the best tea city in the world! ! Have you been there? When I asked at the information center, "How many tea shops are there?", the answer was "millions, millions, millions!!" I met a tea shop in question. It has become my second favorite city after Cambridge. I am on good terms with the principal of a primary school in Cambridgeshire, England (Richard) . The other day, when I was invited to his home, he taught me how to brew tea as a “normal” British person. All you need is an electric kettle, a mug, a tea bag, and a lemon. When I drink a so-called English breakfast, I put the necessary number of tea bags in a large pot and make a large amount, but this time he brewed Earl Gray. According to Richard, Lemon is absolutely essential for Earl Grey. The scent of lemon enhances the scent of Earl Gray and makes it more fragrant. Tea with lemon is well known in Japan. As an aside, it seems that there are quite a lot of houses where men make tea after meals. Certainly, in every British household I've visited (5 or 6), the men naturally took orders and made tea for them. From a woman's point of view, isn't it a nice custom?
