So far it’s been another stressful week!!!!! 😃 I’ll spare you the details. It’s time for tea!
This time I was well prepared to professionally perform tea perfection. I heated both pots as the instructions advised. Since there was no advice as to the method to do so, I chose the ‘pour hot water into each pot’ technique. Then I allowed both pots to sit and get nice and cosy.
Hey, not too cosy! This IS a challenge!
Next, I poured out the water, scratched my head, and realised that this makes no sense. Why didn’t I just put the tea bags into the water?
Again, I filled both pots with water and plunged each tea bag into their warmed vessels. Surely this will produce the best pot of tea I’ve tasted in the many years I’ve inhabited this earth.
As per the brewing instructions, they were steeped with due diligence.
Time to taste! No makeup, and my hair uncoifed (don’t judge) I partook in this pleasant practice.
Sip after sip after sip I contemplated what my taste buds were experiencing. Which tea is mintier? How does the green tea change the taste of the mint? It was all so scientific, yet also pleasing to my palate.
More time passed…
I came to no conclusion. Perhaps I’ve officially tasted too many mint teas. Or my competitors need a bit of honey? 🍯 🤔
The fight to the finish was broken up by the ominous, yet beautiful, sound of a train passing by. I let both competitors get as cosy as they wished and contemplated honey instead. 🍯 😋
I’m not sure that the directives on a box of tea are so trustworthy… but God’s instructions can be trusted.
Sweeter Than Honey
The teachings of the Lord are perfect.Psalm 19:7 – 11 (GOD’S WORD Translation)
They renew the soul.
The testimony of the Lord is dependable.
It makes gullible people wise.
The instructions of the Lord are correct.
They make the heart rejoice.
The command of the Lord is radiant.
It makes the eyes shine.
The fear of the Lord is pure.
It endures forever.
The decisions of the Lord are true.
They are completely fair.
They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold.
They are sweeter than honey, even the drippings from a honeycomb.
As your servant I am warned by them.
There is a great reward in following them.
