Earl grey scones

Earl grey scones  , When, after 23 years living in Switzerland, I moved to Alicante, I was fascinated by the number of cafes in Spain. I knew espresso, coffee, and latte. As much the cappuccino. And when I went to a cafeteria in Spain, I was flabbergasted when I heard:

How to cook Earl grey scones

Then I would order a coffee with milk, like that, a normal coffee with milk, and everyone would stare at me with the face of thinking “what a strange girl”. So to integrate myself, I became fond of “café con leche short de café”: and I became a real Spaniard !!

Of course, then I came to Brussels and the first time I ordered my “short coffee latte” they looked at me with a face like: don’t even dream of it. And I was a regular European again …

That said, I’m not actually a coffee maker. Some days I have coffee with milk (short of coffee), but what I drink in industrial quantities is tea. I have various kinds of tea, depending on the time of day, I have my favorite brands, and I have my kettle at the office to make myself teas during the day. It is what it must have been born in Switzerland … Of course, in Spain I did not dare to confess this vice because tea is officially “the drink of the sick.”
