A Recipe for Comfort

Constant Comment tea.

The Christmas mug with the nearly faded snow man. 

A splash of milk.

A teaspoon of superfine granulated sugar.

A sip.

And peace descends.

OMG just found Contant Comment in my cupboard that I'd forgotten I had. My mother's favorite tea.

It was my mother's favorite too! and one of mine. The scent when I unwrap the foil package is almost better than the tea. And brings back many memories.

I don't think we have it in the UK, at least not in regular stores, maybe in specialist ones. I note it's available online at Amazon, but they're definitely not my cup of tea. Sounds as though it''s very similar to Earl Grey, and perhaps even more so to Lady Grey. I love the flavour of orange rinds.

At any rate, we hope you're encomium will occasion Constant Comment right here! :-)

It is for me what a madeleine was for Proust. Just don't expect a 4000 page novel.

No need! To quote a writer I know: "Memory in reverse is imagination."

Similarly, nostalgia in reverse may be presence.
