86

Going shopping for this actually wasn’t my idea. A fellow writer/editor I know wanted to visit a Korean superstore I’d mentioned in passing. I didn’t think we’d locate this mysterious tisane she mentioned, but – lo and behold – there it was. I brewed it up that night. (It was a teabag, so no special instructions were needed.)

What to say…

The liquor smelled like Frosted Mini-Wheats and tasted like a cross between barley and buckwheat. I mean that in the best way possible. It’s not the great herbal I’ve ever tried, but in a pinch it certainly works. And I got a good story out of the deal. Can’t argue with that.

Going to keep an eye out for this one. Never know what I’ll find in our little local Asian/specialty store.

At the same shop, we also found a “pimple solution” tea. I almost bought it.

Don’t laugh … drink it for pimples or put it on them? (Hey, I’ve heard of stranger cures…)

Bio

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
