Tastes like…

I like Mint tea.

It tastes like dry hay, like grandparents’ pantries full of strawberry and raspberry jam jars. It tastes like "get well soon". Like stomach pain and stuffy nose.

It tastes like I’m good and warm and I could fall asleep smiling. It tastes like the filtered light of trees on a summer afternoon. Like marshmallows, toast, and honey.

It tastes like like seeing snow from behind steamed windows. It tastes like holidays. Like thick gloves, multicolored scarves and frozen noses…

What does your tea (or coffee, or other favorite hot beverage) taste like?
