Pick your potion: What’s your poison?

Captain Picard was into Earl Grey tea; mention the Dude and we think: White Russians. What’s your signature beverage — and how did it achieve that status?

(Thanks, Bea Patricia, for inspiring this prompt!)


“What’s your poison?”

Asks the WordPress guy

In all seriousness.

(Cut him some slack, guys!

It’s a job!)

And I answer,

“It’s tea, old chap!

Black tea,

Green tea,

tea with a little milk,

Tea without sugar, jaggery, aspartame, honey, jam or anything sugary.

Coffee—sometimes, occasionally,

Either to purge or just for a change

But more caffeine’s bitter, pal,

and I need a saccharine kick,

To swallow the acidic astringent!
