No teabags

It is a disaster. The local Chinese/international supermarket has no English style teabags. They always used to have good old English PG tips, but they seem to have run out. Oh no. Italian teabags suck. The tea they produce is weak and horrible. The only alternative is to get a box of Twinings English breakfast tea – which, while being OK, comes in a box which contains a paltry 25 teabags. And the damn things are expensive. I’ll have to find another source – which will not be that easy, although I’m hopeful that another shop I know and which is quite nearby will be able to replenish my teabag supplies. Otherwise I may have to bite the bullet and wait til August when I go back to the UK on holiday for a couple of weeks and stock up on those wonderful bags of teabags which contain something like 240 lovely little bags full of tea. In the meantime I suppose I’ll just have to make do with Twinings, unless one of my alternative suppliers comes good.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Life without good tea could well become untenable. Oh woe is me, stuck in Italy without decent tea.

Discover the Best Italian Wines with these Wine Guides

Seeing as I like to try spread the word on the joys of Italian wines, I’ve been over to Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk to find a selection of books on Italian wine which are bestsellers.

Tracking down books on Italian wine was not that easy and entailed having to wade through a long list of results which contained books on Italian cooking, pizza, ice cream and various other Italian subjects. Still, after trawling thought the lists, I’ve come up with two top ten lists of books on Italian wine.
