|At my desk. Which is in my house. In my kitchen. Sweet.|
I missed having a desk after leaving the theatre sales director gig after fifteen plus years. I always loved puttering around my desk with my 'stuff', doing 'things' and once desktop computers were 'invented' and supplied on every desk, well, even better!
Having recently discovered this wonderful company Crimson Lotus and their unique offerings of Puerhs, and being very new to Puerh in general I find it vital that I can continue a session as long as possible sometimes. If it's 'working' and I don't absolutely loathe the tea, I don't want to stop, I want to go for the full ride! To my Dear Readers who have told me they haven't tried Puerhs yet, I recommend this attitude whole-heartedly. Do it up! To that end I bought a Zojirushi brand 2.5 cup thermos, (though they call it a travel mug) and thanks to its presence I have not had to leave my desk for two hours, and am on my ump-teenth steeping of this lovely brew. Now, if only I had someplace to go; I have my travel Gaiwan set I'd love to review, and along with this thermos I could see myself actually leaving the house! What a thought!
Buddha-Mom generally stays home, in the perfection that is her Southern California rental bungalow, surrounded by her 'stuff', most of which are breathing, living entities, and surrounded by her tea-ware and her sweet little family, but now with this Puerh? Which, by the way, I first saw as a post by Crimson Lotus in a photograph they took of it in a clear glass thermos while they were on a hike.
("Imagine that!" I remember thinking. "Going out and still having tea?" And that is, of course, how I ended up buying this particular Puerh, a travel gaiwan set and a thermos, so THANKS, CRIMSON LOTUS for the inspiration!)
|The gorgeous photo from Glen at Crimson Lotus that got me thinking.|
