Oh bless you, it's so hard trying to sleep in the daytime and having to switch back at the end of a spell of nights. I hope you are enjoying some relaxing tea yourself.
I'm into Pukka teas "3 tulsi" and home made nettle tea. I LOVE the cup in that first pic.

My absolute favorite thing to do is sit and read and drink tea while the rain comes down outside the window. Doesn't happen very often anymore (at least the rain part!) since I've left New Orleans and moved to the desert!

In other tea-related news: I lived in England for a year and my flatmates called me a savage for drinking my tea without milk.

Heidi said...

Mmmmm....tea....so many things to associate with this ritual~

Miri - I guess I'm a savage too! ;P

Thank you so much for this little visual tour of one of my favourite pastimes.
