It’s after 8:30 on a Sunday night, so if I want to actually sleep before working tomorrow, then caffeine is a no-go. Recently, I ordered a sampler of Adagio green decaf teas. I decided this one sounded like a good choice for tonight. It’s a green tea, but it has chai spices and citrus in it.

I really like this. I am drinking it with sugar in my big Scarborough Faire mug. The spice is a better match to green tea than I thought it would be. And it’s light on the palette, now heavy like black chai can be. I’ll try the sampler a few more times, but I think I might end up ordering 4 oz or so.

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.
