Infini'tea' or 'Java'?

Sunday evenings are normally reserved for relaxing. Well this Sunday was slightly different as I had to keep up an appointment to meet an aquaintance at Cunningham road. As i set out towards it, had evening showers for my company. Driving alone in the rain is the second best thing a guy can ask for. ;-). Anyways ...... the fine drops of rain and a drive on relatively 'empty' Manekshaw road . Wow ...... Incredible.

Location is Reliance Web World at Cunningham road. Awesome net speeds and wonderful ambience , the store is a one stop for shopping, connections, browisng and refreshments. After the showers a hot cappuchino beckoned. Awesome music playing in the background and an inviting ambience, I settled down for sometime ordering a cappuchino. Served with the hot cappuchino came a brochure which read ..... " Before 1900 , word 'java' meant 'nutmeg' ( a spice) and not coffee. In 1723, Bach composed Coffee Cantata. In 1800's heavy tax was imposed on Tea and hence America moved to Coffee, Coffee is an expression of freedom". Interesting, I had my coffee relishing the coffee and the music.

The acquaintance I had to meet was not fond of coffee and wanted a 'tea' joint. Infinitea is a tea joint right opposite of Reliance Web world at Cunnigham road. As we were chatting about a host of topics , he ordered for some Ice tea. In this weather ice tea ... hmm ....I saw a promotional brochure. It reads , " “I don't care about immortality, just the taste of tea.", If you are cold, tea will warm you; if you are too heated, it will cool you; if you are depressed, it will cheer you; if you are excited, it will calm you."Thank God for tea! What would the world do without tea! How did it exist? I am glad I was not born before tea." "There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."".

Wow .... Infinitea or Java ......... U decide!! Well the first best thing a guy can ask for is to drive in the rain with interesting company!! ;-) What did U think?

Wow, do they actually distribute brochures with snippets of information? That's an interesting selling point.
