R is for… Raspberry
Stopped at a depanneur on my way home from the studio on the second day of being there. I was so sore and tired, and I knew I needed to kick start my “R Tea” day and saw this so I figured it could double as an R tea and a quick bit of cold refreshment for the metro.
I drank most of it on the walk from the metro to my apartment building, and it was far too sweet and artificial raspberry tasting to really be “good” but it was also super cold and refreshing and after two very long and social days (much too social for this lab dwelling introvert!) it was that sort of “in the moment perfect” that hits that spot better than any quote unquote proper tea would have been.
Then I got home and I fell asleep, and had to continue with my r teas the day after.
