So last night my daughter was finishing up a project on mythology for her Latin class when she realized she’d misread the directions and did a large part of the project incorrectly. Normally this is the sort of thing that sends me over the edge, but I had to read the directions multiple times before I understood what the teacher was asking for, so I couldn’t be mad at my daughter. After I got her out of panic mode she and I worked on the project until 2am. The poor kid (and her mom) had to wake up at six this morning, so I knew we needed a good strong tea.
Oh, this tea. It’s such a cup full of malty deliciousness. It has rich crusty notes but also something that just hints at cocoa. The thickness of it reminds me of a good French roast, but this has none of the bitterness. Add some sugar and milk and it is the perfect builder’s tea. And now that I have my daughter and the project from hell on their way to school I can enjoy this cup for a few minutes until it’s time to get my son up and moving. Thank heaven (or Jupiter or Juno or Ceres) for tea!
