Not even a sniffle let alone a cough for 12 years now, famous last words and all that.....................................
Smell but no taste, sums up goûter for the French, they want to sniff everything but recoil in horror at the thought of actually imbibing something new
My favorite is Chai tea and am surprised at the différences there are, I have some Tescos finest chai which tastes fine but gets a film of scum when you add milk due to the hard water here, I am brewing a cup of Twinings Spicy Chai at this second that tastes even better and does not do that at all, what can the secret ingredient be? It comes in the obligatory single sachets so beloved of the French.
For the guest rooms I use Intermarché breakfast tea because its dirt cheap, something like 29cts a box and ticks all the right boxes for the French, smells of something and has the tag and string with some untrue text on it saying how luxurious it is.
