Enjoying a few cups of super sugary tea (one cup could easily give you diabetes) everyday is a Sri Lankan tradition past on by the British.
In my time here, I’ve learned to always ask for plain tea, no sugar. whenever I’m given the choice. But more often than not, it still arrives dipped in a bag of sugar. I’m actually getting used to it now, although I still don’t get why you would drink a hot drink when the heat is melting the paint.
During our visit to the south last week, our three-year-old host Diniti put on the best tea party yet (and by the looks of her reaction, the funniest tea party too). I think the tea was spiked. Here’s the video.
