One of the most comforting and communal things to do is drink a cup of tea. I savor the warmth and fragrance, the smooth, sometimes shy flavors that warm my tongue and throat. I love the color, blushing pinks and bottomless reds, deep browns and heroic blacks, which will only be conquered with splash after splash of cool milk.

I savor drinking it from dainty teacups and wide-mouthed mugs, even out the crack of a plastic lid on a to-go cup. I love drinking it on a cloudy fall afternoon or while the moon rises on a stark winter night.
I savor the idea and ritual of tea; patience as essence seeps from the bag into the water, the careful first sip, steam rippling up my face. Some of my favorite flavors are apple spice, vanilla chai, citrus chamomile, peppermint and the original sweet and spicy Good Earth tea.
Do you drink tea? What are some of your favorites?
