I watched, ‘ Phantom Thread’ last night!
In the movie, a genius dressmaker, drinks Lapsang Souchang! And as I was watching, I remembered, how much, I used to love that tea. It is smokey! But I never seemed to mind! In fact, as I just mentioned…I used to love it!
After coffee this am, I knew…it was tea time.
I made myself, a pot of Lapsang Souchang, then couldn’t help..but think..of the startling and disturbing contrast..between the peace, this tea brings..and the sadness engulfing all China these days!
My spouse last night, was critical of the movie I mentioned above! He did not like it! I on the other hand thought..it was..interesting at so many levels..especially..the textiles..and custom design! The acting was marvellous too! And…the tea.
Wishing everyone peace, and a cup of their favourite tea.
