I stayed up late filing a box of samples for my sister, MsWhatsit. There are a few other people I promised tea to (if you’re one of them, you might want to send me a reminder, LOL).
My goal is to get to the post office today, either in the morning or the afternoon, but it’s looking more like afternoon, since I have to be somewhere in an hour. Thus is my life, floating from one activity to another, teacup in hand.
This would be a sipdown, except I already have a refill in the attic (the attic being my bedroom). I love this tea: sweet, malty, slightly floral, a little pepper. The aroma of the dry leaf is hay that’s been trampled a little & warmed by the sun, perhaps along the path at the rennaisance faire. It’s a delicious middle of the staff tea, no heavy bass notes, no shrill instruments, a string quartet of cello, viola, & 2 violins. Smooth & flowing, & easy on the tummy before breakfast.
