Beth am gael paned o de, cariadon?
(Roughly pronounced, depending on region: Bith am guy-l pan-ed o day, carry-at-on).
Oh, sorry. Shall we have a cup of tea, dears?
The other day when I stopped in my local tea shop to pick up some holiday pressies (and a few ounces of Russian Caravan – review coming soon!) I decided to pick up something a bit different in the basic/bagged/black tea area as well, since my usual morning Ty-phoo reserve is getting a little low. They had on offer a few boxes of Paned Cymreig (pronounced Pan-ed Coom-rig - literally Welsh Cup but translated as Welsh Brew).
Paned is a good, basic black tea blend (of African and Indian teas it says on the box). It’s stouter than a typical English Breakfast (Ha! No surprise there!) but is still a nice, mild blend. As with most black blends, this will give you a nice start to the morning and can go for afternoon or dinner just as well. Not at all a fussy tea, Paned Cymreig is essentially Welsh – robust, cheering, and welcoming.
I had mine with a bit of Walker’s shortbread and later with a cup of thick beef-vegetable stew for lunch. Anything with cheese and/or leeks would do, too. Maybe even a taffy or two?
I’n graddio ei 8.95/10.
Oh, and Nadolig Llawen :)
