I’m afraid to admit it, but I’m in love with a discontinued tea that I only have a sample of. ;~; Since I don’t have a ton I saved the leaves from yesterday in the fridge and brewed them up again tonight—I guess without thinking really, since I found this blend so wakeful the other day and 4 in the morning is NOT the time to be drinking an early-morning tea. I guess I just thought “herbal” and decided to go with it… my brain is fuzzy tonight.
Anyway, I added a bit too much sugar (I’m using one of my smaller mugs but added sugar like it was a bigger one—my brain is not cooperating at all!). It was a pleasant mistake, as with sugar (and perhaps it has something to do with being a second steep?) this tea is making me sleepy! I don’t know what kind of sorcery makes the same blend wakeful one day and sleep-inducing the next, but it’s definitely magic of some sort. It also tastes fantastic for day-old second-steeped leaves, especially for an herbal which usually just has a so-so second steep. In fact, the eucalyptus is even more prominent now and I can taste more of that signature tingling sensation. Upping the rating, though I do it with a heavy heart as I only have 2 cups left of this.
