My stomach apparently doesn’t like it when I wake up really early, which I have to do almost every Friday to teach an early class. Ugh. When I got out of class I wanted something to settle my stomach and I remembered this has citrus and ginger in it. Perfect.

Sweet, citrusy, with a slight ginger kick. Although I have a lemon ginger on green base, I prefer the (green) oolong base because I feel like it gives more body. This may become a somewhat regular post-class tea on early days.

odd—I seem to have stomach issues when I wake up earlier than my body would like as well. I wonder why that is.

Weird. Actually, when I have to get up ridiculously early, the same thing happens to me. I have a feeling it has to do with the increase of ghrelin production when you don’t get as much sleep (naturally, I tend to get a lot less sleep when I have to get up earlier than usual, regardless of how much earlier I go to bed).

Alot of people’s bodies seem to work best when we get to sleep the sametime every night and get up the same time every day. (Or vice versa as the case might be for some folks.) Myself: for the most part I cannot handle much food when I wake up, and if I can…usually not breakfast food. Now if I have that for lunch (If I’ve been up for a few hours.) I’m fine with it…though depending.
Cereal-I love having that as a midnight snack. heh.

I used to be like that but for the last month I’ve been waking up hungry. Bodies are weird, yo. :)

Profile

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
