Dear Tess and Ravi,
The Chinese have been drinking tea for thousand years. Nowadays, there are still many people drink tea all the time. Usually, we don't drink with milk or sugar. We don't pick some tea leaves from caddy to throw in a tea pot or a big cup and then pour in boiling water. We don't use tea bag often because people think the tea should store in a sealed container to keep it freshing. There are lots kinds of tea in China. Green tea, red tea, Tie Guanyin and oolong tea etc.

I've listened this podcast for years. It is kind of elementary though. But I love it very much.
I like Tess and Ravi especially. They have great accent and they are very humorous. I don't know if they speak those queen English, but I love it alot.
Because of the internet restriction in China, I can't get access to Twitter or Facebook to contact with Tess and Ravi. I don't kinow if they show their pictures for fans or not. But I'd like to say that I wish Tess and Ravi stay with us for a long time. And could you please show us some photos of them some days. I am dying to see them here. Thanks a lot.

Hi, people!!!
I'm from Brazil... we have had the better coffee in the world, actually Brazil is the world productor of coffee being responsable for 30% of market share in the international coffee. We are the second country that most drink coffee in the world. The people really apreciate a good coffee in my country, they usually drink strong but tasty coffee, we just drink a small cup, in the morning and after the lunchtime, some people likes to drink with a little bit milk on it, some people don't. I prefer drink tea, i love drink green tea, and i usually drunk a lot everyday, cos it is very healthy.
