tea 294. i’ll be at 300 teas tasted before the week is up.
this sample bag is from TastyBrew. (thank you thank you!)
bold and unflinching. yet earl grey-ey sweet.
sweet dry bitter sweet wet warmth.
i want to write a thoughtful note about this tea. but today i am a bit sullen.
sullen due to beauty.
just blame the fandom. and how bittersweet it can all be.
the way it both magnifies and obscures real life. and makes me want to be honest. perhaps live more like a character in a book. which i know sounds completely immature. and dramatic. but i don’t mean it that way.
good fiction, good art, good poetry, good tea, anything that distills down the experience of living.
anything that helps define the internal complexities.
these things can help us be in the moment.
they inspire me to live in the moment.
that’s what i mean.
