Daily Prompt: It’s my morning

15 Dec

 

What’s your ideal Saturday morning? Are you doing those things this morning? Why not?

 

Before I start with this post, I really need to know if 11a.m. is still considered morning in this world!

Anyways, the most important part is getting up without an alarm! Without the feeling that I’m nothing more than a drone working to earn and earning to continue working. Without the everyday hussle-bussle. In short, wake up when you know you’ve slept as much as you wanted to. Lazy me!

Then comes my morning tea. If you’ve read this before you know, I’m a tea fan! And I hate to have a cup of tea and having to rush to finish as if it’s some school project. I Want to sit in my balcony and enjoy the aroma, flavour and bliss in every sip of tea that goes down my throat. Some holidays, I also like to put on some peppy sunshine music alongwith. Oh that makes my Day!

Then comes a lazy noon bath! I pamper my body with warm water and oils and take care of every ounce of my skin. Exfoliation, massage, or just playing with water, I like to spend an hour in this. (What else do you expect! I am a Piscean 😉 ).

And If I get a beautiful book to read after this, that’s like a cherry on top!

This defines pretty much my perfect morning. But before I close this, I’d like to mention what is supposed to stay away from me on a perfect morning.

  • Newspaper: If you wanna have a beautiful day ahead, who wants to wake upto the news of who died, how our country is doomed and everything gruesome possible.
  • People: I don’t like to have any company unless it’s peaceful, oblivious and non existent.
  • Haste: I hate to rush!

And yes, I am fortunate enough to enjoy such a morning nowadays! Touch wood!

Big Lessons in Tiny Pleasures: Part 1

Big Lessons in Tiny Pleasures: Part 1

I am a Tea drinker, Tea Admirer, Tea Lover, Tea Connoisseur & Tea Fanatic.
I want tea to wake me up in the morning. I need tea as a break from studies. I need tea to share a soulful conversation with someone. I need tea with snacks. I just NEED tea.
So, Its 3.00 am. Am still not very awake and freshening mouthwash couldn’t wake me up either. What could? A cup of Tea, just the way I like it!
As it boiled and pigmented, I observed it and realised it was trying to say something. I listened and now am sharing with you.

1. Every success is achieved in steps.
As I start making tea with just plain water, I realise a good cup of tea should be made by boiling tea to its most then adding milk and then a flavour of your choice. It doesn’t work the other way around. You can’t just add all the ingredients, bring it to a boil and pour. That sure will make a tea but not THE TEA.

2.Have patience.
If you raise the flame and bring it to a boil in like 1min and get it over with, believe me it will BE OVER. Let it boil on the lowest flame for some time. Only then will you get the aroma and the flavour.

3. Toil & Boil Hard.
A good cup of tea is the one that has boiled hard enough to fill the kitchen with its aroma.
So, if you want that perfect cup, then let it boil.

4. Add Your touch.
Whatever you do, do it your way. I add a pinch of cinnamon. My Dad replaces jaggery for sugar. Mom prefers gingered tea. Granny loves it minty. And My uncle wants it with lemon sans milk. So, If you want it to be called yours, make it yours.

5. Practice is inevitable.
I remember having made and spoiled tea innumerable times before I could actually make it with my eyes closed. So if you want to be good at something, Practise it!

Aaah! Its ready. My elixir. My milk tea with a hint of cinnamon. Just the way I like it!
P.S.: The picture is not mine. I Image googled milk tea. 😛
