869 Tasting Notes
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.
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.

The “I am not feeling well” tea drinking continues on! And theres no use wasting something special on a case of the blahs.
Enter this tea. Its supposedly got saffron in it, but I cant say I’ve noticed. Oh well. I got it from the local discout grocery store, and so its alright. And its exactly what the doctor orderd tonight.
Curse you, mild illness! Not enough to make me stay warm in bed, but not mild enough to make my day easy.
Its turned into one of those little proto-colds that makes it feel like there is a rock stuck in my sinuses, and a little annoying cough keeps making an appearance.
So its time for tea. (I mean, its almost always time for tea, but still…). This cup of mint and chamomile is just the right thing for this. Mint and chamomile always feels like “feel better” tea to me. So I am gonna guzzle.
Woke up to the return of the cough and the dusty breathing. Blergh. And I’m not unwell enough to stay at home from work.
But because I feel a bit crummy, its time to drink something warm and comforting and soothing. This is what immedietly came to mind.
Its almost a passive tea. Nice, but not demanding your attention. So I can sit and drink and think about the upcoming day.
Sip. Sip. Sip.
