When I’m not feeling very well I drink tea and feel better.
My comfort the past few days has been pots of the very best black tea sipped while watching ‘Call The Midwife’ on Netflix.
If you haven’t seen this British series, test it out. The series is full of compassion and reminds me of how kind life was in the 1950’s when I was young. Neighbors looked out for each other and hope was abundant.
Laoshan Black was my warm hug in a cup.
I never have to wonder what I’m going to get when I brew up a big pot of tea…settling down…warming my hands around the mug and inhaling the vapor. I wait as long as I can before taking the first of many satisfying gulps, unable to resist such rich chocolaty flavor.
I crave dessert when I don’t feel well. Salted dark chocolate, gooey fudge brownies and Laoshan Black Tea by the pot are some of my favorites.
The first two desserts I shouldn’t have, but the third I spend neither thought of guilt nor shame indulging myself repeatedly.
