^ a parisian pot of tea (flavour: ‘anastasia’) and my beret in a chic café
it is that time of year when everything piles up at once. reading, writing, meeting people, finding time to cook dinner, and oh my goodness halloweek has struck. for this chaos, the english have found the perfect solution: tea.
If you are cold, tea will warm you. If you are too heated, it will cool you. If you are depressed, it will cheer you. If you are excited, it will calm you.
– William E. Gladstone, 1865
a cup of tea is easy to make, and in these wintry months (because it is still autumn after all, although freezing), it warms me up, inside and out. ★
