I have a little ritual. Each morning I wake up, switch off the alarm, put on the water to boil and brew a cup of hot tea. The flavor will vary, depending on my mood for that morning and the level of caffeine I think I might need to get going on the day. My mug will vary - I have three favorites, although Thursday is ALWAYS the Supernatural mug. That's just a given. On Saturdays I use my sweet little teapot, enjoying the relaxing time that Saturday affords.
The first cup is usually by itself. Just a warm drink of "wake up" that I truly enjoy.
After brewing my cup, I will wander sleepily over to my computer and logon. I enjoy spending a few minutes waking up and chatting with virtual friends - through emails sent and received. All the while, I am sipping and enjoying my hot tea.
I will usually have a second cup with my breakfast or if time doesn't allow breakfast (meaning I have once again played too long and now am late), that second cup wanders the house with me as I hurridly try to get ready for work.
Whether it is while waking up, relaxing on a quiet morning, or rushing to get off to work, I simply love and enjoy my hot tea. I realize that it might not be for everyone, but it is something that makes me happy. Lately I have been trying some new blends that have added to my enjoyment.
Last night I was working on a project and searching for a picture of hot tea to use. Imagine my surprise when I came upon this picture ...
Yes ... Supernatural geek that I am just sat and giggled.
It's an interesting blend, don't you think?
