Wisps surround the setting sun
As the cold day ends.
I've worked my way
through a box of Lemon Zinger
-which in some minds may not even qualify as tea -
but it was progress.
Polite company would doubtless
look askance at the amount
of honey added to my cup, but it was progress.
More helpful, though, was that
I finally understood my difficulty with tea.
It's not the sweetness, but the lack of saturated flavor
that I miss. Maybe double bagging would help.
Today, I've brought home a
lemon-based green tea.
Fresh lemon has been added, as has
Less honey than I've been using.
Progress, I tell you, progress.
