7 tasting notes

This is a wholly adequate morning tea, especially given the circumstances.

Woke up this morning with a terrible head cold, but with a deadline at work, I couldn’t exactly call in.

I needed a good tea this morning. One that would give a swift kick in the groin and get me going.

I don’t have many options at work. Found a box of this hiding in our kitchen, filled a mug with tap water, heated it in the microwave (a little concerned about superheating, so I can’t be sure what the temperature was), steeped for 3:30, found some skim milk in the fridge and added a packet of splenda.

Ahh…Just what I needed. A nice, thick, hearty tea with just the right jolt and no bitterness. I can’t believe it didn’t end up tasting like raw sewage. I’m looking forward to seeing what this’ll do when I take the time to brew this properly.

I will definitely be having more of this today.
