One of my new favorite things is tea. See, when we first started meeting for girls' group, we'd be at someone's house and they'd say, "Does anyone want any tea?" And everyone would drink tea except me. I'd drink water. But I liked the idea of tea, you know? Like very Britishy, tiny cottage on a rainy day with a good book and fuzzy slippers on kinda thing. In the south, we only drink saweeeeet tea. But my friends, here, drink like chamomille tea & Sleepy Time tea & Lemon zinger and all kinds of good stuff. So, when Adam's reflux starting acting up, he purchased some tea. Then, the other week at the grocery store, I got a little tea pot. And finally, I tried some tea. I like it! It's not what I expected- so far, my favorite combination is
1 bag of "Get Some Zzzs" (a red tea)
one bag of Holiday Spice tea
2 bags of Holiday Spice alone are too much but Adam seems to like it.
I think I like the whole process with tea, too. I like boiling the water, the whistle of the kettle, letting it all sit in your mug for a few minutes, and slowly sipping. Tea is what you make for people when they're upset. Tea is what you make when you're awake in the middle of the night with something on your mind. You don't have to worry about coffee breath. Tea is what the Queen drinks, by George!
Don't get me wrong, coffee, I still love you. But I just think I should see other beverages, okay? I just need some space.
