  1. I wish we could have tea together. You can bring the biscotti! Being home these last two days (Covid, maybe?) I’ve been steeping tea and loving the soothing way the scent (I can smell it!) and the warmth comforts me. Thanks for the reminder about the one word poem form.

  2. I’ll bet that chocolate icing was good with the ginger biscotti. I always marvel, since I watch a lot of British shows, the importance of tea in the world, and here perhaps coffee, something that glues society together, a way to connect.

  3. I love the repeated lines in your poem, Mary Lee. I’m generally a coffee drinker, but there’s something about tea on a chilly winter afternoon that warms the hands and heart and soul.

  4. Tea is for me and I will take a biscotti also. I make biscotti so I think I will try a gingerbread spice recipe but none look as inviting as yours. Would you share the recipe? Your poem makes me feel like I am in a kitchen sipping tea and tasting a treat from the past (but I never had gingerbread biscotti. “Tea invites conversation and contemplation.”Love this!

  5. I may need to make some biscotti after this, Mary Lee, while sipping that ‘small word’. I love your poem praise. Keep warm. I imagine many are staying in this weekend.

  6. Life does look good!!! I have been making tea from a recipe told me by a new friend from India: honey, grated fresh ginger and a dash or two of cinnamon. Is it a proper tea? I don’t know, but it is delicious! And good on my throat. I love your tea poem… small words… another idea to try. Thanks!

  8. Yum is also a small word. Yum to tea, to a cloud of steam, to das leben, to biscotti, to chocolate drizzles. I like getting peeks into this new life that allows time to bake something not once but twice. ❤

  10. Tea is my favorite drink! I start each day with a cup of hot black tea. I also like unsweetened iced tea. Your poem makes me want a cup now…but, alas, it is too late in the day, and I’m out of decaf! I couldn’t agree more…tea is no small thing! Thanks for your post! I enjoyed it!

  11. Oh, I am definitely a lover of tea! Most especially green. Sipped often. Best hot. But can be taken at any stage in the cooling process. Wish I was closer, and could try it with spicy gingerbread biscotti – and you!
