Ceylon avec miel s'il vous plait (BIG I'm trying to pass as French smile...)
"Non!" Avec lait"
Eyes nervously darting from the waiter to the menu to Amy to the waiter to Babe then back to the waiter followed by a weak...miiieeelll?
"Non miel! gibbergabberish, flourish with the hands, gibbergabberish...avec lait!"
(in my best ventriloquist voice) What's he saying Amy???
"He says that Ceylon tea is too acidic with honey. He's bringing you milk"
Ohhhh kaaaay...avec lait (commence pouting...)
Well, Monsieur waiter didn't bring any ole milk. He served a petit pitcher of warm, frothy whole milk and 'twas indeed one of theee best cups of tea ever. My feet were barely back on American soil before I had William-Sonoma's Aerolatte Handheld Milk Frother en route...
Sooo, out with the Green tea with honey annnd in with the Ceylon and frothy goodness..
With the Breville Electric Milk Frother I can play Parisienne Café serving up tea avec lait AND chocolat chauds while snobbishly schooling my guests on the sins of avec miel...
Kindness of the random French waiter in a café outside the Musée du Louvre. Little does he know those 30 seconds he spent correcting my bad order were digested, repacked and loaded into my snob arsenal and just biding time til it's nose in the air public debut...XXOO
