1233 Tasting Notes
Life is really something sometimes, yanno?
It’s been a long hard slog in many respects here and sometimes, I just can’t do it. Yesterday was like that. This morning too. I just wanted to shut the blinds and hide in bed. Regardless, I forced myself up and out today, though I have to admit, it was an extraordinary effort.
This is the tea that I brought with me.
Once I was out in the world, some lovely happenings happened.
Someone gave me two delicious home baked toffee cookies.
Another extremely shy someone gave me his email and suggested I keep in touch after the group that we were both in ended.
Someone else invited me to a religious service that was by chance being set up in the restaurant I was in. (I didn’t stay for it, but it was nice to be asked.)
Someone else told me that I was the most fun ever dancing partner in our cohort.
And the weather was warm and a bit wonky and humid ( but it was definitely not winter).
All of these interactions, and this tea too, were gentle and kind. Most excellent when one is feeling particularly fragile.
And as they say, tomorrow is another day.
Packets of this were available, in addition to camomile and peppermint tea bags, at my meditation session last night. I went with this and some added milk.I rarely choose this type of tea at home, but I enjoy it out in the world, especially with added milk or cream.
And then, the whole experience was made even more lovely with a bowl of super sweet individually wrapped milk chocolate bunnies and another bowl of crunchy crust chocolate nut mini Easter eggs.
Is it really possible that people who honk their horn once to alert the ones that they are picking up at 5 am think that no one else is going to hear this in the still city at dawn?
Thank goodness for tea. Seriously.
I appreciate that the flavouring is just as gentle as the base tea itself. Hence, the two meld into each other seamlessly. Almost like an black currant icing sugar drizzle over the Bai Mu Dan.
