Sometimes there is nothing more refreshing than a piping hot cup of tea on a brisk, cold day.
Tea takes me to other places in my mind, places I’ve never been, places I dream about and conjure in the vast regions of my imagination.
What is it like to stand inside the Taj Mahal? Does it smell sweetly of spice?
What would it be like to walk along the River Thames in London, a mug of Earl Grey tea warming my hands?
I take a sip of my cinnamon tea on this first truly cold day of the autumn and breathe in this season of Halloween.
