One of the daily routine we all have at the office, just like in every office, or indeed every working place in this country, is to drink a good dose of tea every day. I generally drink three cuppas a day, sometimes more, and I am not the one who drinks the most. It is a simple ritual: someone puts the kettle on, offers tea to the others around, the others all accept (or most of them), repeat for every employee. We are a small office, so it is kind of expected. I am not the most sociable man, but in this instance I became almost civilized and I now know how to serve tea according to each taste. It goes as follow:
-The boss: with a dash of milk.
-The lady from HR: with a lot of milk, it becomes borderline beige.
-The male colleague I get along with: with a dash of milk, skimmed.
-The female colleague always on the road and thus not often at the office: with somewhat more milk than the boss, but less than the HR lady.
-Me: very black of course. No milk as this is barbaric.
It might sound very boring, but I think it reveals something about their character. And I haven't given details about the mugs. Anyway, how do you people have your tea?
