A nice man comes to my door carrying a parcel. It is from my brother Alan in England.
It is wrapped in brown paper. I do not know if other people have an association between parcels and brown paper, but I do.
The parcel contains a supply of Lapsang Souchong tea that will probably last me a year.
Alan is and always has been the kindest man.
A birthday card from Scotland took 7 weeks to get here. I wonder when Alan sent this package of happiness.
Ah yes; love in a brown paper package: priceless. ~Rachel

Great to know that the tea arrived! Posted on 8th of June so not too bad a delivery time.
The tea supply is a combined Christmas/birthday effort. I’d delayed sending the Christmas portion as you were messing about in Mexico and California but then Covid-19 entered the scene and the supply lines from Wuyi in Fujian were closed and there was no Lapsang in Waitrose! Horror! Tried other varieties but they pale in comparison so when supplies were renewed in late May life improved enormously.
What was provided to you in Brown Paper? Plain brown envelopes we know about – were the brown wrapped packages equally dubious? We should be told.
Meanwhile – hē chá!
