  1. Very nice picture. It conveys the romantic and high class feeling associated with tea in Europe in earlier times.

    How did you like your tea in Madrid? It sounds an unusual place to drink tea...

    Stephane: thanks for commenting.

    I enjoyed tea at Cacao Sampaka and the trip to Madrid and other parts of southern Spain overall. Tea a Cacao Sampaka was the only time I had tea in Madrid/Spain!
