    When I go on a first date, I usually end up going to a café with good tea and cake sometime during and check out how much she enjoys it. It's a pretty good way of filtering out the good, the bad and the coffee drinkers.

    does the barista seep his balls in your cup for free or do you pay extra for that

    That's something you'd have to pay extra for tea as opposed to coffee which already is naturally flavored that way.

    It's a pretty classy café I go to.
    The waiter (barista? wtf?) comes up to your table and you then get to open his zipper. You can select which of his balls (or both if you are feeling lucky) you want to dip in your tea. If you want cream,you need to work a bit harder, but it's still free.

    Yeah but then you're stuck there talking for the most part. You should try lining up an activity to accompany that very ordinary thing, like busking with a banjo even if you don't know how to play.

    I don't just go to a café. Like I said, I do it "sometime during".

    I'm not really into cake but I love tea.

    Usually i drink jasmine or white, but really I like all kinds. I just usually have to avoid caffeine.

    A giant mug of english breakfast on a cold early morning is phenomenal though.

    Paging @Liiya

    I had blueberry tea from a shop yesterday and it was pretty good. Took ages to get made though, for some reason. They serve English Breakfast there though so I have to go back some time.

    Thank you for paging me!! You're a good 'un. And yes, you MUST go back for English Breakfast tea, its so good in the mornings.

    I got this,

    For Christmas and its great. I surprisingly liked Green Tea quite a lot, though I still keep Assam as a favourite!

    My boss also bought me a new tea cup for work today because I dropped my old one in the stone floor and it shattered into a million pieces.

    ALSO I am baking tomorrow I think, something that will go well with tea!

    I admit, I've had some delicious coffee, but even then it's always a "have this with dessert" thing for me.
    Break room tea isn't much better than break room coffee :P Tis why I must bring my own tea in with me.

    And now it is sprung.

    I would've gone back for English Breakfast tea already if it the shop wasn't in the middle of town. Takes me a 20 minute bike ride and on mornings I usually don't have the energy for that unless I've already had breakfast.

    They are too fussy with cleaning them out. Much better to just use teabags or some other type of strainer.

    I had some eucalyptus in my tea today, but that was a work-related-accident. Did not taste good.

    I have a tea-pot with an in built mesh infuser that you just slot in the top and it stays there nice and secure. They're pretty good but I didn't buy it so I'm not sure where you buy them!

    It's where my English teacher led me to believe it was. I stand corrected. I just can't deal with a bunch of ANDs.
