50 Shades Of Earl Grey
With the popularity of the Keurig coffee makers, (I have one at work and home), I find myself with a cup of tea in my hand all day long. It's so easy and always comforting, but lately I notice every time I see a pod of tea with those three words sprawled across it, I gotta have it....
"My lips begin to quiver, and to satiate this momentary pulse of energy, I bite my bottom lip and let my senses drink in the aroma. My inner Goddess is suddenly overcome with an unspeakable joy."
I've never really been much of a Green Tea girl. I know that Green tea has many more health benefits than black tea, like increasing the metabolism, reducing bad cholesterol and reducing the risk of some cancers. Even so, the black tea does something to me....
"It burns deliciously hot, so I must be careful not to scald the delicate bits. A hard limit, for sure."
Occasionally I will drink English Breakfast Tea, instead of my beloved Earl Grey. English Breakfast Tea is more strongly flavored and is commonly mixed with milk and sugar. The most popular Breakfast blends are English, Scottish and Irish, all of which present a heavy malty flavor, and are enjoyed preferably in the early morning hours, before an afternoon tea.
"I willingly agree to a spanking before breakfast with his mighty whip. It's the understanding of the dominant and the submissive that the safe word will protect the submissive from harm. But when the fine line between pleasure and pain is crossed, "yellow" and "red" are not the words that come to mind."
At night, before bed, I often treat myself with a Bengal Spice tea from Celestial Seasonings. Enjoyed black and piping hot, this blend of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves makes you feel like you are on a trip to an exotic world, far away from reality. A delicious chai blend, predominantly cinnamon spiced, is a late night dream.
"I am sightless, blindfolded and bound to the bed, unable to change my position and waiting for his next move. When he comes, I absorb each blow, savoring the delicate pain and pleasure and my body takes me to a place of exotic fantasy."
I would consider myself a tea lover at heart, Submissive to the many blends and aromas of a fragrant and strong tea. I love all types of tea, for sure, and I derive much pleasure from indulging in many different blends.
But my heart belongs to the Dominant black teas and the Fifty Shades of Earl Grey.
