Tea is an acquired taste, one Dee is gradually growing accustomed to. Ryo drinks it all the time at home; green tea, chamomile, Lapsang Souchong… Dee swears his partner must have a tea for every occasion, and while he finds some of them on the bitter side, they’re mostly not too bad, even if sometimes a little honey or lemon is required to take the bitter edge off and make them more palatable.
As much as Dee loves his coffee, there are times, like late at night, when a caffeine boost is the last thing either of them need. Say what you will about tea, it’s a lot more soothing and relaxing than coffee, and makes for a better night’s sleep. That alone would be enough justification for drinking it, but…
Turns out, with honey, lemon juice, and a shot of whiskey, good tea makes the best cold remedy ever!
