During six weeks in Sri Lanka I was enchanted by the tea fields. They are incredibly dark green and peaceful. That summer the three of us still fit on one scooter. My son stood in the front, no matter how long the drive, and I held onto my husband as the back passenger. Almost every night after dinner I’d make a cocktail and we’d hop on the bike and wind our way through the tea fields as the sun set. How much I love Sri Lanka; those twilight drives were rich and sexy. So I had to buy a little tea can. I’d always been an espresso drinker, but then after that I drank Ceylon tea until I quit caffeine altogether.
