Chinese tea? green tea? How do you like the taste? I couldn't get myself to have it more than onceClifora wrote:I usually drink tea. Chinese tea - especially green tea. I feel that drinking tea helps me to focus better and it also helps to calm my nerves.

I love coffee. I learned to drink it in Italy, and while ours isn't like theirs, I brought my love back with me. I personally prefer my coffee with a non-dairy creamer (almond or coconut based), a bit of vanilla, and sweetened. But I'd take black coffee happily before no coffee.
For something special, I'll brew it with some cardamom as well as vanilla.
I like tea, but drink it iced in the summer, and hot in the winter.
Here's the (sad) thing. My body just can't handle the caffeine. A cup of coffee or even an iced tea too late in the day, and I will feel it late in the evening. It's amazing how the body can be fatigued, yet unable to sleep. So, my coffee is savored before noon, with a possible cup of decaf in the evening. I stick with decaf for holiday dinners, too.

As for rituals I wouldn't say I have any but then again I don't really think of what I do before I sit down and read into a new world.

But my "process" is ever-changing. Sometimes the urge to write a poem that pops into my head interrupts all functions of every day life - I could be sleeping, doing the dishes, talking to my lover, and I just have to stop, find my notebook, and get it down on the page before it's gone.
Other times I feel a sort of nagging at the back of mind telling me I'm ready to say something on the paper but I don't know what it is. At these times, I try to give myself the space and time to find it - sometimes that means doing yoga, going on a walk, or maybe having a cup of tea (with my notebook close at hand of course).
There are also times when I just want to write but don't (or think I don't) have anything in particular to say and I just sit with my pen and paper until something comes out.

I write in my office with the window open in the summer and cracked during the other 3 seasons.
I just recently fell in love with Tazo brand tea? What brand do you guys enjoy?
