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!
