I can’t help but laugh whenever Kageyama (Sakurai Sho) stops everything he’s doing in Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de to make way for what he calls as “tea time”.
I actually like the traditional high tea with scones or crumpets that they serve in fancy restaurants in the United Kingdom. But I just feel it’s also highway robbery, but then you pay for the ambience.
But like Kageyama, I can have my tea time anywhere and with anything, as long as I have the right tea and that is loose tea leaves that you steep for only a few seconds. I like Chinese oolong high mountain. I once visited an old tea house in Taipei where the owner explained to me the various types of tea leaves. I like mine light in flavor and color so he recommended oolong and puochong teas.
Unlike Kageyama and the Britons, I don’t wait until “tea time” to have my tea and drink it too. Since I don’t drink coffee (though I love its smell), I usually start my working days with a cup of tea (when I have time to steep it though).
It’s tea time!
