Pre-Tea Fast Jitters

Stressed Out

Pre-Tea Fast Jitters
2 Days Prior to Tea Fast

Oh my gosh! What was I thinking? The big day is just around the corner. In preparation for my fast I have been enjoying some of my finer teas that I have been saving for a special occasion.

~ Note to self – Stop saving teas no matter how rare, costly, or special. There is no time like the present so enjoy them while you can.~

I am trying hard to get my game face on but the reality of time is sneaking up on me. I know I can do this but I fear the only reason I will give in to temptation is missing the flavors and routine of my regular teas I have now been drinking for years.

Sure I am a little jumpy right now. Perhaps even more as I have just finished a rather large pot of Puerh. I probably should not have done that. Perhaps the proper and more responsible course of action is to slow my consumption before the big day. Let me be perfectly honest I have never been that good at making the rational choices. I follow my heart more often than my brain. If I had used my brain I probably would never had even concocted this ridiculous notion of “quitting tea for a week!”

On that note I need to make a list of teas I want to be sure I drink before the fast and then a second list of teas I want to drink as soon as the fast is over. Perhaps I should consider a little tea shopping during my fast so I can having something to look forward to post fast.

Wish me luck!

    If this is the pic best suited to describe your jitters now, just wait til you are 5 days in. Your hair will be standing on end, you’ll have that hollow, pallid look, haunted by the demons of tea. You’ll be banging your head against the wall and straight jackets will be waiting.
    Anyway, looking forward to the daily accounts!
