Many of you are aware of my infatuation with tea - there is nothing like a warm cup to put you at peace and calm your mind for just a few minutes. Admittedly I have been drinking a lot more coffee lately than I usually do due to sheer necessity, but tea is still my favorite. So this morning, I decided to indulge and, despite the warm weather, turn on the stove.
I brewed some green tea (even though Earl Grey is my favorite, hands down), drizzled in a thin stream of honey, and garnished with a lemon slice and fresh thyme. The essential oils in the lemon all danced across my tongue as the thyme added fresh herby freshness to what can be a monotonous mug. Heavenly.
