did vinyasa krama's tadasana sequence today.
enjoyed the black tea my friend XuYe brought from Nepal, where she trekked for a week with her work colleagues. (she may be sharing pictures and i might be posting them soon!) my colleague N., who visited Nepal with his wife J., says this is the typical breakfast of the Nepalese - they drink this tea and eat nothing the first two hours after waking up.
the tea came encased in a fragrant wood box. N. remarked that the tea had, "nice flavors of a strong team and none of the bitterness our sourness that comes from commercial tea". it's so cool to be able to talk about the aspects of tea, as if it where wine. my tea supplier often uses similar words when describing the oolong teas i buy from him, giving names to aromas and tasting experiences.
yesterday i enjoyed green tea from Fujian Province, Guanyin tea, which my colleague S. shared. i had tried Guanyin tea once before. it's fragrant and mild. most of the teas i buy are from Fujian, a big tea growing area.
do guys get men's hols? the emotional part for sure. kidding. i feel blue about something and it gets my emotions out of kilter a bit.
