Today I was in a happiness mood because the cramps have finally alleviated! Yay! Thanks so much to everyone for the well wishes. :)
I figured that I could finally have something caffeinated again, so I figured I’d get jiggy with it (LAME). Something nice, basic, black, and tasty for my morning cup. I actually had forgotten how absolutely pretty the leaves are! When I opened the tin, I was pretty surprised by the golden and delicate twists of this Jig.
I steeped it up with a bit more leaf than usual, to make up for the wiryness than won’t fit into my teaspoon. The resulting cup was definitely more powerful and bold, but not bitter. It actually smelled like toasty cocoa, if that makes any sense. Warm and deep and delicious.
Because of the extra leaf, I actually think that I might have tasted a bit of the peppery taste that has been eluding me the entire time I’ve been drinking this. It was extremely faint, but I think I finally might have caught a taste of it!
Wrapping Christmas presents and sipping this was pretty much bliss. And happiness. Add onto that the fact that I’m not curled up in the fetal position, or rocking back and forth in pain, Paranormal Activity-style, this is turning out to be a fairly good morning indeed.
