Often I choose my food based on how it makes me feel psychologically rather than physically. Today was one of those days. I came home from work frustrated and exhausted and just needed to destress myself. I find a pot of flowering tea often does the trick. There is something magical about the way the tea ball opens into a beautiful blossom while the tea steeps and just watching it unfold, gives me a feeling of relaxation.
The real relaxation comes once the tea is ready to consume and I find myself on the couch with a kitty next to me and my knitting in hand!
