Drinking tea

They all eat first and then drink tea. Vera told me they are taught that your stomach will rot if you eat and drink at the same time. I still can't eat without drinking anything, it gets all dry in my throat, so I had a cup of tea while I ate and another one while the other people did.

-from a very insightful article about Russian "tea culture" and how it plays a role in everyday life
