Some places especially coffee stands where people call in at breakfast time do make cafe creme with instant coffee even commercial bags of nescafe which my son says is pure caffeine with tins of condensed milk and boiling water, and of course a slice of thin choc cake or Libanese square.

Hi Soleil hope that you are in good health! To be honest with you I think that the latte in Tunisia is the best, I love the smell of real coffee beans. As for tea I have never drunk it before ,but saying that if someone comes here and I make them a cup of tea I always place some gloves in it and everyone loves it and the reason that I do these without thinking if they like it or not is because this is how Greek people drink their tea.:) The only tea that I will drink is Arabic tea with pines nuts at the top.

Hi Roulla:) I like my earl grey tea (and since I also drink a lot of coffee :confused:) past a certain time of day, I resort to drinking decaff - that's why I always carry them with me. Having said that, I'm also not that keen on the green/mint tea as it's too strong for my taste.

I also have a Turkish friend , who does the same as you and adds cloves to her tea. ;) I don't particularly dislike it... but feel that it's a bit of an acquired taste.
As far as tunisian coffee goes much prefer the italian way of doing it (such as Costa & Nero's coffee shops) my favourite being cappuccinos. Lattes can be too milky for my taste... and I like my hot beverages - hot - not lukewarm, as they are more often than not served in Tunisia, at least in the numerous places I've been to.

Apart from that....love everything else! :D
