Tea or coffee? I can't decide. I like them both for different reasons and I go through phases. Coffee is a high powered jolt that helps me get a lot accomplished in a concentrated amount of time. I forget to eat and my body crashes—but that doesn't mean I don't keep coming back. Tea, on the other hand, is a much more gradual and longer lasting energy, though not to the height of coffee. I like the ritual of steeping loose leaf tea. I like it's subtle and more delicate flavor. I feel that tea is better for me and often enter a tea phase when my whole being needs centering.

I was going through a phase of mixing and matching loose leaf teas. As the title suggests, dried rose petals were being added to everything. One morning I brewed up this waltz. It originally appeared in full band form on my second record, Oog.
