But, as it is 8 a.m. and the goal is to make things better, rather than make things worse, I reach for tea. A serious tea. Celtic Blend from American Tea Room. I love that it is more than just an Irish Breakfast Tea. It is reaching for the roots, the core of Irish Breakfast Tea's being. It is Celtic. And it will kick you in the teeth. In a good way.
Bold, strong tannin flavor, and yet surprisingly smooth. It is the liquid warrior version of Enya. Liquid velvet that packs a punch. I take my morning tea black, but this blend would be extremely cozy with milk and sugar. Maybe that will be my afternoon treat. In the meantime, I feel the fog breaking up, the goals become clearer. No longer a deer in headlights, it's time to make my move. This week will not jam my gears. Look out world, here I come. And I'm bringing my mug with me.
