Peace...

Tea is naught but this:
First you heat the water,
Then you make the tea.
Then you drink it properly.
That is all you need to know.

Sen Rikyu - Tea Life, Tea Mind

It's my nighttime drink of choice - Darjeeling tea.  Quote was spotted in a book I posted about here.  Feeling like a peaceful, simple post this morning.  Hugs!

Ahh! Thank you for passing these relaxing thoughts along : ) Our daughter served us raspberry iced tea. It was so good, I bought a box of Raspberry Zinger yesterday to make some myself.

Love it.
And co-incidentally I am reading it with my first cup of tea of the day. Chai. Yum.
