Anyone for tea?

Here in Japan、 this week we have a five-day weekend, rather glamorously named as Silver Week. It consists of the Saturday/Sunday weekend for those who work week days only, Respect for the Aged day, National day and Autumnal Equinox day. For those lucky enough, the long weekend started on the 19th and lasts until the 23rd.

今週多くの日本人はシルバーウイークを楽しんでいる。運が良ければ、5連休になりましたね。平日のみに努めるなら、週末の土、日曜日に敬老の日、国民の休日、そして秋分の日を足して、19日から23日まで遊び放題?

Unfortunately for me, the long weekend falls just before payday..ahem.. so I’ve been spending my time pottering around at home , catching up with chores.

残念ながら、今回の連休は給料日前に来ましたので。。。えへん。。。家に籠り楽しく用事を済ませたりしています!

Contrary to popular opinion, we Brits do not sit down for Afternoon Tea every day, but we do drink endless cups of tea. In IMG_1184fact, did you know that in the UK, a total of 165 million cups of tea are consumed every day!

世論に反して、イギリス人はアフタヌーンティーを毎日頂きませんが、確かに職場や家で毎日大量の紅茶を飲んでいます。実は、イギリスで一日に紅茶は165,000,000杯が消費されています!

If, like me, you’re enjoying just relaxing at home during the holidays, why not try one of my favourite teas?

今週の連休を家でゆっくり過ごしているなら、私の大好きな紅茶を試してはいかがでしょうか?

You can find Williamson teas at Kaldi or on Amazon Japan.
