Two For Tea

It had been a long while since I had visited my cousin due to the COVID-19 isolation period. As part of my social ‘bubble’, I was able to visit him this past weekend for tea and a chat.

I brought with me some of the biscuits I had baked – a remnant of our childhood as our mothers used to bake these often. As we bit into the shortbread, our taste buds took us back to a time in the past.

We drank Cinnamon Chai Rooibos – another tea that we grew up on. This tea is one of my favourites and I enjoyed sipping the cooling liquid while we chatted about the past and the now.

As we were chatting, the air conditioning unit cooled us a bit. We are currently experiencing a heat wave so we were not keen to sit outside on the balcony.

We did not stop talking for two hours until I had to leave to go home! Seeing a person face-to-face is a much better connection than talking to one another on the phone.

I enjoyed my visit and I am sure we will get together again before the summer is over and I have to get back to my work schedule. The visit buoyed me a bit and I look forward to connecting with others in the upcoming weeks.

      1. Well, they certainly looked yummy! I find it fun that you call them biscuits and we call them cookies. Biscuits here are fat fluffy things we eat for breakfast with our eggs. hehehe! πŸ™‚
