This is my favorite before-school morning tea (not to be confused with the ride-to-school morning tea and the at-school-in-the-morning tea). And I’m glad it is, because this makes me want to get out of bed in the morning (so that I can have as many cups of it as possible). I think it has something to do with the raspberries and the chicory root, both of which I love. This is a tea I would like to have in my cupboard always.
ALSO TO NOTE that I got a fb offer from Davids for a “free 2 oz. with a purchase of 2 oz.” I was thinking of refilling an old Davids tea canister with this, and went in. The lovely man at the counter told me that I could get ANY OTHER 2oz (I had thought that you just get 4 oz. of the same tea for 2 oz., which is still a good deal, but) so I got a FREE TWO OUNCES OF GUANGZHOU MILK OOLONG. SO MY TWO FAVE TEAS IN ONE DAY. HOW AMAZING IS THAT.
Well, that was a fun freak out… and a much needed one, because I’m taking the SAT tomorrow (gulp). My dad offered to drive me, and I’m meeting my friend at Starbucks (I’m bringing a drawstring filter of tea so that I can just ask them for hot water, i.e. my favorite thing on their menu) before we go in. I’m nervous, obviously, but a little excited because hopefully I won’t have to take it again.
Well, I’m off to cram my brain with random vocabulary and various formulae. Altogether , it’s appropriate that I’m using this tasting note to say all this stuff because I’m planning to bring a large thermos of this tea to the test. I hope, for all your sakes, you are done with SATs (and i’m sure y’all are).
