  1. I love tea! I like English Breakfast best, Earl Grey is nice too . There's this place here in Wellington called T-Leaf that sells tonnes of flavours, like chilli, kiwifruit, jasmine blossom etc. I'm not really one for those kinds of teas but their turkish delight tea is quite nice. I can't stand coffee, I loves me some tea .
