Another tea from the magical cupboard at work. It was after noon and I just wanted a break. I didn’t really want a pick me up, I was barely trying to get through the day, didn’t need to get even more excited about having to be there another four hours. :)
The label was a bright friendly yellow and I thought “ok, why not”, not expecting much. My best bet was to throw in some ice cubes after steeping and at least have something to quench the thirst.
The flavour was not at all the lemon I feared. You taste more honeybush with some ginger than lemon. Also didn’t need a whole lot of sugar. I’m finally at the point where I’m able to dial back on the sugar and still be able to enjoy the tea. yay! I can’t really articulate much more than that, it’s not like it was a complex tea or anything. And I was somewhat distracted because I was at work, you know, working.
The tea was nothing to write home about but since I had very low expectations, I was pleasantly surprised!
Oh and… I nearly fell off the chair when some woman who came in the kitchen to make some tea grabbed the bag of this, carefully examined the label, opened, sniffed it, and dumped a teaspoon worth in her cup. No filter, no nothing. She poured some water, oblivious to steeping parameters, waited maybe a minute if that, and proceeded to fish the leaves out with a teaspoon. That was her idea of making tea, obviously. Waste of good tea if you ask me.
