Tea and coffee. About normal and abnormal

The very first time in Italy, until I learned to speak Italian fluently, I was tormented by the question: “Do you have normal or hot tea?” I could speak tè caldo – hot tea, and I pronounced it as clearly as possible when ordering. And they continued to ask me with pressure: is it hot or is it NORMAL?

There is no normal tea in Italy, unfortunately. I have not seen a teapot in any house, nor in a single supermarket have I seen loose tea in packs. Tea is sometimes brewed in bags, and water is boiled in a saucepan, and a tea bag is thrown right there so that no one has the opportunity to regulate the strength of the tea.

Other Italy

“Ladies and gentlemen! Our plane landed at the airport of Trieste. We are glad to welcome you in Italy,” a pleasant male baritone informs.

Folgaria – comfortable for beginners and interesting for professionals

In the southeast of Trentino is Folgaria – the land of quiet villages and interesting trails, the best place for those who decide to relax with their whole family.

The experienced skier, speaking of Folgaria, will remember first of all its intricate slopes, the most curious of which is Salizzona. A wide slope in the form of a giant more than a kilometer-long letter S with a double bend connects Cima Dosso and the Folgaria plateau. The slope is moderately steep – you will go down 312 meters. But if you decide to ride this “red” track from the beginning to the very end, be prepared for the unexpected. Salizzona has a very inconsistent character, and it guarantees real Continue reading
