St. Patrick’s inspired

To green or not to green? (Here’s me declaring green tea the best beverage of this day. Such a cool cat!)

1) Whenever I hear “St. Paddy’s!” a haunting voice wispers in my head “Paddy? Who’s been wearing Miranda’s clothes?2) Simpsons, Wiped out (the iPad game) offered themed quests, adding O’Flanagan’s pub, the wishing well (comes with the leprechaun who drops game money or experience points when tapped) and painting all the water in my Springfield BEAUTYCALYPTIC fave colour: neon green. 3) The picture above shows the most delicious and ultimately healthy tea out there, Sencha Uchiyama. Not only is its colour an amazing emerald green matching the colour scheme today, it’s also #1 tea suggestion in da book.St. Patrick's at BEAUTYCALYPSE

That’s it. Happy St. Paddy’s, whenever you are, and a sunny Sunday altogether if you don’t care for the green luck!

P.S. I hope you won’t ask for a “how to fight hangover on a Monday morning” post tomorrow 😉

  1. green is such a terrible color/colour/shade for those of the pale Irish skin – a gorgeous vermillion would have been So much kinder.

    or a subtle peach.

    yes.

  2. I am drinking tea as I read this, not sadly the lovely emerald green tea you show in your picture. I clicked back to your earlier post and da book sounds most interesting I will seek it out in my local library.

    Happy St Patrick’s Day. There’s still a few hours left!

    • da book is worth reading!

      I finally gave in to da book’s and St Paddy’s calling and had a glass of red last night 😉

  3. St Paddy’s Day Green Tea… no doubt what I should be drinking at this hour rather than black coffee… (No wild imbibing for moi later… a little reading, a little writing… maybe a little snoozing? Nah.) But I will certainly be on the lookout for Leprechauns…

    • when you’re awake at 4am it really doesn’t matter what you drink anymore – you will be seeing leprechauns at one point or another 😉

      as for high voltage drinks:
      2013 was the second year I’ve met drinking delicious cidre rosé (not cider – french cidre, and yes, naturally rosé coloured) instead of champagne.
      and I go to my favourite bar maybe 3 times a year (they serve as they claim The Original 1930s Cosmopolitan, with raspberry pulp).
      that’s it 😉
