Morning Ritual

I'm an early riser.  I love the morning, it's my favorite part of the day, and I love it most when I can witness the sunrise with a hot cup of tea in my hand.

I am predominantly and tea drinker, and an old-school one at that.  

I like loose-leaf tea, preferably Sri Lankin or English black tea, made in a pot.  The former is unheard of where I live, and the latter is very hard to find so I mostly get it online.  I also like to drink it from a tea cup and saucer.  I don't favor big mugs for my tea because it goes cold too quickly, I like my tea hot.

So, today I'm sharing a sketch I did late last year of my tea cup and tin.   It's watercolor and ink in a Stillman & Birn "Epsilon" series sketchbook.

Enjoy your day, and thanks for stopping by. xx
