825 Tasting Notes
Aw man. I want this cough to go away! Its ruining my sleep.
So I am drinking a lot of tea (of course) as the solution to the problem.
This is a quinticentially winter tea to me. And we are getting the teasing taste of spring, so I should work on the amount I have left. Spring flavors are coming!
I spent all of yesderday coughing up various chunks of lung. Yay.
I seem to be a bit better this morning, thank goodness, though still coughing. I swear, if I have any more Ricola, I will start to yodel.
But! Its time to move away from the lemon teas, and try some more regular teas. But still not the precious favorites.
Well, enter Simpson and Vail.
This, I think, is my favorite of the S&V teas I got. Its actually living up to its discription.
And you got to love the soothing properties of tea.
Though I am feeling much better, I still dont want to risk my lovely teas on this remaining cough.
This only proves my firmly held belief that I should always have some good quality bagged tea in the cupboard, for just an eventuality. And its even better with a little lemon, too sooth the throat.
Its very welcome, as my voice is practically gone, after the class I taught this morning. Ah well. Tea!
This lemon tea is just the right thing as I emerge from illness back into humanity. Cough cough.
I’ve got rid of most of the pain, but I’ve still got a whopper of a cough, so this tea is proving particulaly soothing.
A nice, basic black, with a touch of lemon that is not at all bitter. But not a precious or wonderous tea. Excelent for sipping on while sick.
Illness continues on. I do think I’m turning the bend, however, and so I’m keeping the soup and tea coming.
Lovely boyfriend has come over, to ply me with hot beverages, and to use my sewing machine. (he’s adding velcro to his fencing uniform. He’s got a tournament tomorrow. )
Its very domestic around here. Hack, wheeze.
This is a good tea for this. Nice, but not special. And the lemon helps sooth the painful swallowing.
