Tea is my favourite drink. For preference, strong builders tea, although maybe Earl Grey in the morning. This week, i thought, it’s time for change. So i got some ‘silver tip white tea’ from the local aspirational deli/hippy market, made from the fresh buds of the tea tree, plucked within two hours of opening and wilted in the sun. It’s not bad, although i’m not sure that the result lives up to the rhetoric. Still, it’s good to try new things.
We fall into routines, some of which are comforting and sensible, others through lethargy or apathy. It’s good to try new things, break the routine, escape from the norm. You never know what you might find. You can always go back to the everyday builders brew.
