Undrinkable? No. But I am still finding this bitter. I am not sorry that its gone.
Many thanks to my sister, who gave me this, but I am not at all displeased to strike it from the cupboard.

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.


Feel better. Coughs are the worst. I hate it when I cough so much so long my back and side muscles start to get sore.


Yep! I’m at that stage, unfortunatly. Well, I’m taking it as easy as I can.


Feel better soon :)


Oh no, I hope you feel better soon!

I am now well enough to go back to work. Boo. I dont wanna!
I still have a thrillingly magnificent cough, though, so I’m going to require all sorts of hot tea to get through the day.
Up first is this.
Mild, mellow, nice. An easy tea on the throat.

I’m feeling well enough to try a proper loose leaf today, but not well enough to pull out a beloved favorite.
This is a proper orange tea. Not an orange spice tea, not an orange cream tea, an orange tea.
I over steeped this today, though, as its a bit bitter today. Ah well.

Flavors: Orange Zest

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.


Welcome back to the land of the living!


If you like licorice tea that is good for sicknesses too.

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.


Fencing. <3

Also feel better!


Feel better! sometimes lemon tea is just the thing you need..

Had a break between work shifts. I’m just about to go to the evening shift.
I brewed this up, and tucked myself into bed to read. I managed to drink it all before I went to sleep.
Up now for part two of the working day. Bleh.

Deterioration during the night. I woke up at midnight with a massive sore throat, and was unable to get back to sleep easily.
I dragged myself out of bed when my alarm went off, grabbed an anti ingflammatory, which will hopefully help get me through the morning shift, and brewed this tea.
It fits all the specifications. Hot, drinkable, not special, and the touch of lemon makes it soothing.
Its gonna be a long day.

Flavors: Lemon Zest


Ugh sore throat is always horrible for us tea lovers. Definitely stick with the lemon teas, maybe some ginger too if you have any. Hopefully it will shift soon.

I love tea! I confess that I was a hot chocolate lover for most of my life, but recently a switch has gone off in my brain, and suggested that I might just love tea. And I do!
I’m a bit of a novice, but an enthusiastic one, and am happily sipping new varieties all the time.
I love vanilla, fruity, and caramel flavors, and cant wait to try more.
