Dylan and I walked up to the Japanese gardens and meandered around. It's still early in the year, but there was an abundance of blossoms opening up to the world. We sat and had tea next to the wet gardens, where a hummingbird joined us.

Went wandering through James Bay on the way back from Beacon Hill Park. We took a detour down a side-street and found one of the city trees had been converted into a tea-tree. ☕️ 🌳


Photograph of the the moment I consider giving it all up to become a tea-farmer. Maren recommended coming to @obubuteafarms for a tour of their estate. The tea tasting we had was so memorable because we also got to see the whole process: from tending to the bushes, to harvesting and processing! I even learned a few new brewing techniques 🍵

Today in grad-school: robot tea parties.


Anna and I went to pekoe tea the other day. For the first time I was able to sit down and enjoy tea there. We both had a couple of green oolong teas which were served gong-fu style.


Deliciously sarcastic fortune: "your graceful qualities make difficult things seem easy". Yes, I did drop it in my tea.
