The ultimate sick tea!

I spent the weekend babysitting two 5 year old booger factories. I am sure they spent the whole weekend trying to sneeze into my mouth and put their fingers into my food. I thought I had escaped unscathed but I was wrong. Couldn’t sleep last night because my throat felt like it was closing. Then all day today unless I had a Halls in my mouth I couldn’t breath or talk.

So I came home from work a made a cup of to tea with a healthy scoop of creamed honey. Felt really good while I was drinking it but back to razor blades after I was done :(

Well I’m going to have a freezie and off to bed. Hoping this doesn’t last too long.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
