304 tasting notes

Did not think I would want this again this morning, but woke up thinking about how to make it better than yesterday.
I got the recipe down perfect this morning. In my 6 cup corningware teapot: 3/4 cup water, 1/4 cup milk, open 1 teabag. Bring to a rolling boil. Simmer 2-4 minutes. Strain and enjoy! Perfection in a cup. Smooth, spicey (but not too much). The texture reminds of the homemade hot chocolate my Mother used to make, but without all the calories:) Preparing this tea in this manner really helps take the edges off the black tea base.

STAY CALM AND DRINK TEA

Steam rises from a cup of tea

and we are wrapped in history,

inhaling ancient times and lands,

comfort of ages in our hands.
