So, I took this one for my tea today. Interestingly enough I did an entire blog post on a decaffeinated version of Earl Grey, waxing eloquent about putting lemon in it, etc. Only to discover a few days ago that that was actually English Breakfast Tea. What strikes me especially funny is that no one else noticed, either. The photographed box (looking very posh in black and yellow) clearly proclaimed it an English Breakfast tea. I just didn't read it! I may go back and change the title later, but the point is that I've only had Earl Grey once before, and that was in the loose leaf version.
I will say that nobody makes tea like Twinings. I love that they make good old fashioned hundred-years-old tea, and yet are constantly coming out with new blends. (That royal wedding tea was something else. I swoon.) Earl Grey is a classic, and I still stand by my statement that it goes very, very well with lemon. Cuts the bitterness, brings out the flavours, I've said all this before!
I passed a few rejoicers, as well. One house with Prince William and Kate bunting stretched across the front, and little flags out in the back. Perhaps they had a back-garden tea party. Another house with a huge flag flying proudly, and another with more bunting on the fence. It was a happy walk, this morning. One of the things that made me the happiest was that I not only had the energy to walk, but ran further than I had any other time, too. I thought from such a long day yesterday I might barely want to walk. Another reason for having a blog like this: laziness is not an option. I think a few years ago I would have really struggled to know whether it is laziness or inability, but I'm learning that even on my worst days I can still walk some. And the only way to find out how much that 'some' is, is to start off. Sometimes it surprises you. Today, I surprised myself.
Walk/run length: 30 minutes
