As much as I love tea, I turn into a fangirl when it comes to Earl Grey. Especially Bigelow Earl Grey. Every time I prepare a bag for my mug, I always sniff the bag. The bergamot oil mixed with the black tea sends me into a cloud of pure bliss as it increases my anticipation for the tea. So, it just seemed appropriate that my next "tea meditation" would use that blend. . . .

A summer in the county.
Feelings of peace and solitude.
I receive a letter in the mail from a dear friend - he wants to visit me.
Freshly grilled asparagus for dinner.
Time has slowed down here.
A cool breeze flows through my hair as I sit outside reading my friend's letter.
I smile and later prepare for his arrival.
I have to admit that I have enjoyed these moments of "chado dreaming" so far - they have been great moments to drift away from the problems of the day, drink my tea, and simply dream.
Until next time.
