        • I (along with all of my country-men and -women) am totally addicted to the stuff. I need two strong cups of tea in the morning before my brain and body can function at all! There are many different kinds of tea, Gina, and maybe it is just one type whose smell offends you. Do Filipinos generally not drink tea at all?

          • Filipinos don’t normally brew their own tea and many don’t really enjoy the taste of freshly brewed black or green tea (or any kind of tea for that matter). Some health conscious Filipinos have been trying to drink green tea or slimming tea recently-but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they enjoy the taste. Filipinos enjoy coffee more than they do tea

          • That’s very interesting, Gina! I find it funny to imagine a whole nation (or a substantial part of one) disliking the smell of a particular drink ๐Ÿ™‚ Especially when you think that tea is Asian and coffee Ethiopian by origin ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
