I don’t really know how to rate this – it’s the best green available at my home airport lounge, so I drink it whenever I’m traveling – more out of habit than strong preference. It gets bitter very easily, and I rarely finish my cup. I’m making this sound so much worse than it is – it really does have a pleasant citrusy body to it, and it goes well with my traditional lounge melon and banana platter.

In other news, my luggage is (half) lost again. It was the bag in which I had placed my sandwich, so this is all very sad. I might have to go out into a torrential Rome and score some more foods. BAD airline. BAD.

ETA: The sandwich was in the other bag! The sandwich is safe!

The security man lowered his head slightly and pressed his ear bud to make sure he heard the update correctly. The hint of an unprofessional smile breaks through his normally iron demeanor, but he is quick to suppresses it. He raises his sleeve and crisply reports “The sandwich is safe. I repeat, the sandwich is safe”.

His partner eyes him quizzically. “Ben, are you crying?”

At least that’s how it played out in my mind.

LOL, nice touch!
Anna, glad you get to enjoy your sandwich, hopefully the bag is found :)

Hahaha, TeaExplorer, that is hilarious – and thanks, all of you! It was one of the best sandwiches in sandwich history.

Bought this cheap in a local supermarket and was pleasantly surprised. I don’t know if the “Anhui black tea” bit in the company’s description is really true. The leaves look like BOP soaked in blueberry… At any rate, as far as simple flavored teas go, this one was quite nice, the blueberry making a strong enough impact on taste and giving a pleasant aroma to the liquor.

drank Röd Skymning by Kobbs

This is a vanilla rooibos tea from a Swedish company, little known outside Sweden it seems. I had a good time tasting Kobbs’ blueberry tea, and I love rooibos, so I came to Röd Skymning with high hopes. Unfortunately, even after 5+ minutes of steeping, the characteristic rooibos aroma just wasn’t coming through, and what little did was utterly obliterated by vanilla flavoring (and it too was not very tasty).
