Soy Green Tea Latte (a Starbucks card)
I drink a lot of tea, both black and green. I also use soy milk (because I’m lactose intolerant) – but not in my tea. (I don’t take milk either.)

I also have a cutting board very much like that one!

Postcards for the Weekend

  1. I guessed this was Hansel & Gretel before I even read your caption!! It DOES really depict the story! She is fattening them up for sure. Plus we have a Starbucks nearby and LOVE it! We are there quite a bit, and even get their breakfast sandwiches. I know the English put milk in their tea, and I cannot see how they like it that way. Plus it is healthier without the milk. What cool postcards. I love your weekend postcard posts! I never know what I will find!

  2. well I must say Hansel and Gretel look very happy eating their meal and don't seem to be worried about that witch at all... I always put milk in my tea growing up, of course we did not drink it allthat much and still don't. but when I do drink it now I don't put milk in the flavored teas, like chai. but just a regular tea I would..

  3. Pretty postcards!
    I used to take (regular) tea with milk as a child, here in the NEtherlands. (Nowadays I prefer coffee, and indeed flavoured tea does not match with milk).
    An advantage of milk in tea - my dentist once told me - is that tea itself can colour the teeth brown, which one cannot remove by toothpaste; but milk binds the brown-causing pieces so the teeth keep on being white and don't need to be cleaned by the dentist for this.

    1. Having developed lactose intolerance later in life, I stopped buying milk at all. Nowadays there is lactose free milk to be bought, but in the meantime I got used to tea without it, and soy milk for everything else... (For guests, I keep some powdered milk if they require it.)

  4. I grew up drinking coffee and tea with milk, and still do, only I switched to soy milk as I'm also lactose intolerant.

    Despite living in Japan, I really don't like green tea. I have tried to, but can't help feeling I'm drinking grass clippings water....I drink tea with milk in everything except oolong tea cause that's how I roll ;-)

    I like the cards a lot, especially the Starbucks one. I did visit Starbucks in Taiwan, but I didn't have a Soy Green TeaLatte....I did have some other kind of tea though. And probably a sandwich because it was lunchtime and I was hungry!

    Thanks for posting your cards!

    1. I like some green teas as well, but just as with black teas, I usually buy flavoured ones. I drink green sometimes in the evenings as it's supposed to contain less caffeine.

  5. Me too, I guessed they were Hansel and Gretel. It's a nice postcard, and an original approach to this week Postcards for the Weekend's theme.

    Is that Starbucks card a free one? I don't go to Starbucks often; but I probably would for getting this card... :D

    1. Eva, I don't know if that card was free or not, but it was printed by Starbucks. I'm not sure if we even have Starbucks in Sweden. At least not in my town as far as I've noticed!

    2. We don't have Starbucks in Morocco either, or at least I've never seen one here.

      Delete
  6. I also drink a lot of tea and infusions. Same with you, no milk on my tea. Thanks for sharing this card. I'll be on a lookout for Starbucks card, I haven't seen one!
