I brewed my first “winter writing pot” of tea tonight! In years past, when I was working hard on a writing deadline I would brew pot after pot of black tea. The contract on my first book ran out and I requested the rights back so I can publish it myself. Rights revert to me on December 1. I am going through the manuscript to find any little typos or errors. I know there are some. Even after I went through it, the editor went through, and the final line editor went through it, there are still little but annoying errors. And I plan to add a couple of scenes to built interest in the other books in the series.

Anyway, I brewed a pot of this tea in my DAVID’S bubble clear glass teapot. I don’t know why that makes it better, but I like this tea more now than when I first got it. There’s enough bite of spice to make it interesting. And my handmade quilted teapot cozy works great. I brewed the pot at 5:00, and at 5:30 the tea was still hot enough that I had to wait to drink it. I poured the last cup at 7:00 and it was still warm. Score!

With detail work like that, you may just need to take your tea intravenously :) May all the little pesky invisible errors glow in the dark so you can find them!

I do this too! I call it writer juice, and I usually require pots and pots of the stuff. Good luck with the revisions.

I love cats. I love alone time. I love sitting indoors on a cold winter night with a book or my knitting while drinking tea. I don’t have a sense of smell, so many of the more subtle flavors of tea escape me. Two of the things I CAN taste are bitter and sour, so any tea that has even a slightly bitter taste is nasty for me. And what others might perceive as pleasant tartness may be horribly sour for me.

I’m also a writer. I love writing, and a mug of hot tea helps me get through the hours sitting in front of the computer. Although I’m a comparatively new tea drinker, I’m jumping in feet first. Feel free to recommend any teas you think I might enjoy.

100-91 – Wowza! I want to keep this tea in the cupboard all the time.
75-90 – Very nice. It would be good to have this tea on hand from time to time.
60-74 – OK. Wouldn’t keep it in the cupboard, but I would drink it again.
45-59 – If a friend served this I would drink it to be polite, but it’s not really my cuppa.
Lower than 45 – Blech. It was too sour or bitter for my taste. Would not drink it again.
