This is my hometown, Gliwice in Poland. In the old part of town there are many small and narrow streets that lead to the main plaza where the Town Hall stands. Here and there, under arcades and in the shade of trees there are small cafe’s where you can have a coffee or tea.
Tea, served hot, has always been the most popular drink in Poland. In the last decade coffee has march in with an array of tastes and nowadays I would say they are equal. Tea is still preferred by the older generation while coffee is enjoyed by the younger.
My favorite is green tea with rose hips but made with whole tea leaves steeped in a small teapot and poured into a clear glass. What is yours?
