I love to read books, and I love to eat biscuits, (covered in chocolate of course) and nothing looks or sounds more perfect than sitting outside on a park bench, underneath the warmth of the shining sun, the play of birds in the background and a gentle breeze blowing by, reading a book, eating a chocolate covered biscuit and drinking some tea.
If only I could understand how to make a great cup of tea.
I made my first cup of green tea last week, and I must admit, it tasted much like hot water... Not much else.
Maybe I didn't leave the teabag in long enough? I was quite impatient. Or maybe I'm drinking the wrong type of tea?
It could just be my lack of experience and maybe I should just persevere and continue acquiring a taste for tea.
I like the quote that begins this post, a touch of wisdom in the everyday world.
I imagine Eleanor Roosevelt was sitting outside, in the White House garden, reading a book and sipping some tea when she come up with this quote.
