My poor husband has to work today :( so I am taking this opportunity to have a huge mug of Thomas Sampson with a good deal of sugar crystals – I’ve been obsessed with these lately – I LOVE them:
and half and half! Pure comfort in a cup as far as I’m concerned :) A malty, honeyed (and even more honeyed with these sugar crystals with the molasses intact!) bready almost meal! I cut a minute on the steep time, and used a touch more leaf, and it made for a perfect cup.
I associate this style of tea – and tea with cream and sugar – to be so supremely homey that I think I would curl up and built a fort with my coat under my desk if I had it at work! I’m so glad I developed a taste for plain Chinese teas for work, because it makes my cream and sugar filled Indian teas that much more cozy for home.
