There hasn’t been much time, or energy, for tea drinking lately. Things have been quite busy here, constantly in motion, to the extent that I have overdone it by the time I realize it and then there’s nothing to be done but rest and nurture.
Only some teas do well in travel mugs, of course, and even those lose something of themselves when you are out in the world occupied with whatever it is that has pulled you outside.
Then too, there’s the influence of starting and ending the day with absolutely foul Chinese herbs, incredibly bitter, which are taken in tea soup form. Yuck. But apparently good for me, so I will continue the course. Even though my tastebuds are destroyed for a bit after drinking this down.
And then, there’s the spoon of coconut oil that the naturopath prescribed, which I find easily enough to manage in a cup of tea, but then, the tea is somewhat mangled. Some teas manage the coconut flavour better than others.
And so the journey towards health continues. That’s pretty much what I’ve been busy with altogether. It’s quite a process.
Today, thankfully, I was able to simply be. At home. With tea.
After the morning herbs and oil tea, I chose this one to unwind with while doing some typing. What joy!
I’m not a big fan of mint really, but here it is subdued enough that it adds just the slightest something something to the Laoshan Black chocolatey thing going on.
