I used to drink my tea with cream and sugar. It tasted creamy and sweet but it didn’t taste like tea.
I’ve started drinking tea with nothing in it. And now I can taste the tea. There are no distractions or cover-ups.
People tell me I should use cream and sugar, that it will taste better. But I tell them that it’s ok. That when there is no cream and sugar, I can tell whether I’m drinking Perfect Peach or Earl Grey. That the flavors are clear when there is nothing else in it.
Sometimes, life is like that too.
