illustration friday (savor/savour)


As I am terribly sensitive to caffeine, Rooibos Tea (red bush tea) has become my staple these days. It doesn't hurt that it also seems to be the staple of Precious Ramotswe, the heroine of the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency series (and I do mean the books, as I've never seen the dramatized version).

  1. I've just finished reading the book! Yes, I remember she was always drinking Bush Tea!

  2. What a lovely illustration, the colours are delicious,have never tried the tea though.
    I too enjoyed all of the books about that "traditionally built African woman", Alexander Mcall Smith is such a talented writer.
