Lexi in the woods

In brief...

...maybe not quite the soul of wit, but in the neighborhood:
  • 12:06 I will be so glad when the monkey is once again cellphone-equipped. *sigh* #
  • 17:35 Watching tiny silvery fish swimming & jumping in the estuary. #

Lexi in the woods

shh, this is the good stuff, man...

"Hi!" says my favorite barista at Peet's. "Haven't seen you in a while."

"Yeah, I've been drinking more tea lately," I reply.

We chat about tea for a few moments while she makes espresso drinks. She steps away from the machine and reaches into a drawer, then slips a small, tissue-wrapped bundle into my hand. "Try this," she says. "It's pu-erh. Fermented. Steep it at least five minutes — it doesn't get bitter. It's my favorite lately."

Can't wait to try it when I get home.
