This afternoon I spent several hours cleaning my studio. Tomorrow I’m hosting what I call a “Bridal Tea”. Once a month I invite brides who have visited my booth at the Bridal fair to come for tea for an hour or so, during which time I talk with them about music for their weddings, answer questions, play my harp for them, & usually they go ahead & book me. I have 2 brides coming tomorrow, & when I asked what kind of tea they like, they both said they don’t really like tea. I’ll make some tea anyway (something I like, LOL), & set it out with some grapes, some macaroons, some rock sugar, & cute little cups & saucers.
So, I don’t really like cleaning. I have a special arrangement with myself: I work for 45 minutes, then I get a 15 minute break. During my first 15 minute break, I brewed my sample of Laoshan Village Chai. It was pure Heaven. Not the spiciest chai I’ve ever had, but SO very blissful & yummy. I drank the first half plain, then I added stevia & almond milk, and it was gingerbread! I re-steeped the leaves 3 more times, during my breaks, & although each cup was a little weaker, the flavors were still there. A warm, yummy brew!
