My sister Rolie lives in Saudi Arabia and I live in Canada. A long time ago, she sent me a box of tea from Harney & Sons. She is addicted to the Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea, and now so am I.
We meet on Skype, make a pot of tea together and then chat until the pot is empty. Sometimes we brew another pot and keep talking.
When I start writing in the morning, I go through the ritual of making tea first. My green teapot, my white mug, a little pitcher of milk, all on a pink tray. I carry it to my office and close the door. Now it’s writing time.
Do you have a beverage of choice for when you want to think?
