Irish Breakfast in the Afternoon

More flowers from Schloss Spiez.

We have done the dread deed and we are officially in residence in our new home. So tired! However, it is immensely refreshing to listen to the night creatures and watch the sun begin to filter through the tall pines in the early morning. If I could just find more than 2 teacups and my dinner plates, I'd be a happier camper.

Perhaps later today I will find some tea to review, as well.

I did and I am having some Twining's Irish Breakfast. It's pretty plain. I brewed it at boiling for 2.5 minutes as it is pretty close to fannings grade. It's hearty and tastes pretty good. For me it would, fittingly enough, be a morning tea - one I wouldn't have to think about at all, just drink it down and wait to be conscious. Since that seems to be my afternoon state these days, it is an excellent choice.

I often like the really strong teas mid to late afternoon...3-6PM is my naturally lowest point in the day, when I have the toughest time concentrating or getting anything done.

Amazing how tea really perks up a sluggish brain, without the "too much" buzz of coffee.
