By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

How do you take your tea?

Well, I've been drinking tea since I was very little. Mum made it for us every morning to help us wake up and hopefully focus on our lessons. Along with that, there was always the local radio channel, which was something I will never forget as I loved and was looking forward to hear it every morning. I like my tea strong and with 2 to 3 sugars! Yummy. :) I could drink from one cup to three cups a day. Trying to quit though but it's really hard to do.

So, how do you take your tea?! :)

    I drink my tea without sugar normally but in Nepal it usually comes already sweet as Nepali people love their sugar and add it to the pan of milk, water and tea as they boil everything in the same pot.

    Oh, @mheredge , that's too sweet! 3 sugars is enough for me!

    Watch out @Bell, too much sugar and diabetes is a high risk. If you cut down or even omit sugar, you can delay or even avoid this terrible complaint.

    I drink my tea with a slice of lemon and sugar.
    I drink it every morning.

    I'm drinking my tea black and no sugar as I'm staying at a hostel and don't have any milk. I take it much weaker than I would if I was adding milk @Berry.
