Most mornings have a bite in the air, so when I opened a package of teas from the up and coming tea retailer, Nelsons Tea, and spotted Winter Nights, I knew that is what I wanted today.
A smooth black blend with just a hint of cinnamon spice and all things warm and toasty. I like its subtlety of wintry-ness, as it allows for the upcoming possibility of spring.
(I also love the label design.)
This is the time of year when its easy to look only toward spring, wishing desperately that the cold would melt completely away and we could take full advantage of the sun and outdoor activities. But it's also worth it to savor the wintry moments that remain. That fluffy winter sweater, the warm and fuzzy slippers, hot soups and stews that simmer on the stove, the fire in the fire place.
Today I intend to just chill and not rush so quickly to the next season, but appreciate the luxuries that can only happen in the now. And now, back to that cup of tea...
