I've decided to cut back on coffee, from a cup or two a day to a cup or two a week. When the ratio of coffee to food is too high, my stomach starts to complain. And early this week, my stomach complained bitterly, if mercifully briefly.
Tea is different. I had a cup of
osymanthus fancy (a black tea blend flavored
with osymanthus flowers) last night, and a cup of Earl Grey this afternoon. And now
the apartment smells of masala from the lentils cooking, of lychee from
the tea brewing, and of bleach from the still-drying kitchen floor.
