Hi Adam and all my friend here :) in my country ussually tea drink in the morning and afternoon..... and we always make some tea to our guest who come to our home :)

I had made a mistake in the word I said, It should be : that was the frist time I had drunk the tea I felt fantastic I had never had before my life. Not very fantastic.
Thank you

I have known tea since I was a child, a neighbor of mine who was an old man we called him "grandpa".
There was once in the middle of August a festival of Mid-Autumn,
in Chinese custom we usual as drink tea and eat the moon cake.
But at that moment most families were poor had no extra money to buy moon cake and with a nice cup of tea.
This kind old grandpa invited me to his home tasted a nice cup of tea with the moon cake , that was the frist time I had drunk the tea I felt very fantastic I had never had before my life.
Now I am getting old I always remember that day he and I had a wonderful moment, after that I like drinking tea, that's because him.
Best wishes,

Everyday,every time,what I drink is green tea, one or two times a day,I drink coffee, and sometimes I drink tea.  I add nothing to green tea, I drink coffee without sugar or milk though, I drink tea with sugar and milk.
I make my green tea to put green tea leaves into a teapot, then pour hot water into the teapot, and wait about one minute. Its flavor really is my cup of tea !!!  I drink instant coffee on weekdays, but in holiday I make drip coffee. In the case of black tea, I use teabag, because it's difficult of amount of tea leaves. Whenever I brew a pot of black tea, it tend to be bitter or weak.

Thanks for your fantastic podcast.
 Thanks Adam and Job for mentioning "Hanoi boogie" on this podcast. I am so glad you could listen to it. In fact, there isn't an offical MV of this song because the musician believe that the memory of each person about Hanoi is different.
Vietnamese drink tea too. We drink lotus tea. There is even has a drink called "trà đá_icetea" which is sold everywhere and everyone can drink it because it is very cheap.
One last thing, "Kieu Trang" is a girl not a boy as Adam said. But that Ok.
In fact, it took me 30 minutes to type this comment and to make sure that the grammar is correct. Is it too long? Tell me if i 've made a mistake. Is my writing English skill ok? i hope i can improve it.

Hello Kieu Trang,
Sorry for my mistake!
I'm afraid I don't have time to evaluate the English in user comments, but your comment was very clear and well-written. One thing I didn't understand was 'MV' - I don't know what it means.
Best wishes,

hi. i'm a vietnamese. The word MV is the abbreviation Music Video. this word is commonly used in our country nowadays.

Tea is also one of my favourite drinks, particularly on a cold day. I usually drink tea with milk and honey as I like the taste and find it comforting.
Don’t really like coffee  much, although coffee is a popular drink in Portugal, but like water and fresh juice at any time of the day. Nice topic, many thanks.
