Tea

Following Sue and Roni's advice, I went for the good stuff and ordered tea from Upton. Assam, green, and my favorite Red Rooibos, which is hard to get without vanilla or some fragrant something added. It's all good, the green is my favorite --so far and away superior to anything you'd get in a bag -- and yet, and yet, first thing in the morning, that first meeting of assam tea in mug to mouth, it's just not coffee. I'm not going to drink coffee, mind oyu, but if I could just have that one first slurp, that's all I miss.

I so get this. There doesn't seem to be any tea anywhere that even comes close.

No. Nothing comes close. It's like when I moved from New York to Philadelphia. I could only be happy in Philadelphia when I stopped comparing. I have to stop comparing and let in the pleasures of the leaf.
