I don’t know what it is about me and tea. I just realized as I was making a cup of tea tonight that I am a tea OC freak. It has to be jusssst right. The water has to be boiling hot, the tea bag has to steep for a few minutes before the precise amount of milk and sugar can be added. Then, and only then do I sit and joyfully sip the bliss.
I am baffled. My personality is soooooo type B to the extreme. Rarely have I ever been so particular about anything. Seriously, I am the poster child for low maintenance, easy going-ness. I even surprised myself when a friend asked me if I wanted to share a cup of tea with her and split the cost. Immediately I replied “Oh no, I am picky with my tea.” The look she shot me was one of ‘oookaay, tea fetish nut job.’ But don’t worry, i shot a look back that said “cheap o cheap – buy your own cup of tea.” I must admit that I make perfection in a cup and anything less is well, disappointing!
Yep. I’m a tea freak.
