71
drank Spearmint & Cream Blend by Custom
911 tasting notes

Today is going to be a long day. I set the thermostat on 70 because the heater in my office is way too powerful for the small room. And yet the heater is still going even though it is 74 in here. Someone just came to visit me and complained about how stuffy it is. I can’t help it! It won’t stop! I feel like I’m suffocating. On top of that, I don’t feel good – my stomach isn’t happy. Which made me bring this tea out of the recess of my pantry.

This is just a 50/50 mix of Adagio’s spearmint and cream. I only break this out when I don’t feel too hot, so today. It gives me tea but the mint adds a little gentleness that makes my stomach, if not happy then at least not mean(er) to me. This is my feel bad tea.

So now my stomach is still unhappy (though not worse – yay mint!) and I feel like someone is trying to smother me with a heavy duvet straight from the dryer. And that is making me very whiny. Meh.

Aww. As the queen of whine, I think I’m going to give us all permission to emo it out this week. If I were you, I’d work out in the hall as an act of protest. Tell them, “I refuse to shower until you fix the temperature situation. Which may not affect you today, but…you will RUE next week!”

Or I suppose that you could react like a normal human being and endure it. I’m just throwing ideas around, here. At least you have tea?

Do you have a window in your office that you could open a crack? Or you could maybe bring a portable fan to work.

@takgoti: You crack me up! I think I’d crack before my coworker would if I decided to boycott showering!

@Jillian: Only the window right next to the thermostat has a screen (yes, we are high class) and that just makes the blasted thing work harder. It takes about 10 minutes for the heat to shut off after I drop the thermostat down so at least I just suffocate first thing in the morning, right?

Hope you’re at home now and feeling better.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
