Tea is a magical potion even to humans; is it any wonder that unicorns find it so enchanting? I very rarely drink tea alone. It seems that whenever I begin to brew a cup, another tea drinker turns up. I had just poured a cup when I felt what I thought was steam upon my cheek. I found the soft muzzle of a unicorn inches from my face, inhaling the aroma of herbal mint tea, and hinting strongly that she'd like a cup. In this case I had to make a bit more than usual, but luckily I had a teacup big enough for my friend. We spent a quiet evening with our tea and a handful of cookies. The cookies, of course, were chocolate chip and were long gone by the time this picture was taken.
