    What are your favorite simple pleasures in life?

    One of mine is: coming in after having done some work outside in the cold, to a hot cup of coffee, and then relaxing by the window nice and cozy.

    Milk. Milk tea is the High Tea of Tea. But only if it is whole milk, from a locally-sourced dairy.

    (Yes, I really am that much of a tea snob)

    Tea should be drunk without sugar and milk... But that's just my choice
