…you are no longer tasting the tea, you are merely tasting the sugar…{Quote}

“Lastly, tea — unless one is drinking it in the Russian style — should be drunk without sugar. I know very well that I am in a minority here. But still, how can you call yourself a true tea-lover if you destroy the flavour of your tea by putting sugar in it? It would be equally reasonable to put in pepper or salt. Tea is meant to be bitter… If you sweeten it, you are no longer tasting the tea, you are merely tasting the sugar; you could make a very similar drink by dissolving sugar in plain hot water.” George Orwell, How to Make the Perfect Cup of Tea

I found this amusing quote on how to make tea perfect by George Orwell on Brain Pickings. It is part of the essay A Nice Cup of Tea. I am tea lover myself and one of my favourite tea places to get the loveliest cup of tea is Good and Proper, a place perhaps George Orwell would approve of.

“I used to think that becoming an adult was boring… Then I saw quite a few shining adults. They were enjoying working; they were creating stuff as kids were having fun. Then I thought maybe it is fun to be an adult.” Kumamiki, Party Baby

Kumamiki is a young Japanese fashion designer and ower of Party Baby. I got this quote from a short film made about her and Party Baby before her first ever fashion show. Below is the YT interview and here is a more information on the interview.

…A deadline is a beautiful thing…{Quote}

“I have a routine when I have deadlines. A deadline is a beautiful thing. It puts me into a framework. I do like ritual and repetition. … It’s always reassuring… It puts things in perspective right away.” Maira Kalman (Source)

I think is so true. I found this quote and found it made so much sense, even though deadline can be a nightmare.
