Tuesday, 08 April 2008 - A mug of hot tea

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for a mug of hot tea.

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves - slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. ~Thich Nat Hahn

I rarely drink coffee - can live for months without consuming a single drop. Instead, I drink hot tea, several mugs every day. Here is a list of my current favorites:

~ Morning and afternoon: Green tea (loose leaf), Earl Grey or chai (made with soy milk).
~ Night: Mint (usually peppermint) or ginger (made by simmering slices of fresh ginger root and lemon in water).
~ Stash Tea's Licorice Spice - reserved for special occasions.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
