I am still on a high from last night’s concert (Indigo Girls played with the Dallas Symphony Orchesta, and it was aaaaaaamazing!), so I decided this morning required a treat. On the way out the door to work, I grabbed the sample packet of Black Dragon Pearls.

Drinking plain. Nice color, tastes very good. Goes well with the leftover chocolate cake from yesterday’s celebration of August birthdays (I work for a good company!). No bitterness or astringency.

Not getting much smellwise, but my allergys are acting up.

When I was a very young child, I swallowed an ice cube whole. It got stuck in my throat, and my mother had me drink hot tea to melt it away. That started a love affair with tea that has never abated.

I dabbled with Celestial Seasonings and other grocery store teabags for awhile, in my young and foolish days. But a few years ago, I received a tea of the month subscription from Adagio, and I found that there was a whole other world of tea out there that I had never experienced.

I love drinking tea, and I love the personal ceremony of making a glass or pot of tea for myself. It’s like a meditation.
