When Mother Nature Has You Trapped
We have had nothing be rain, thunder, lightening, and hail these past few days and now a ton of flooding and closed streets in the Chicago area. I am only feet away from potential disaster as I live right near the wetlands. The water has already started overflowing. Soon the wetlands and I will be roommates, though I hope not.
So, my question is…
What teas do you enjoy on days like these when your trapped at home because of Mother Nature?
anything and everything…starting with Cocomint :) and sipping on samples!
I just hunker down. Open the blinds/curtains to see Mother Nature’s latest gift. Put on my pj’s and do a major sipdown. Or sometimes its a firstsip, of all the teas in my cupboard I haven’t opened yet. And just enjoy the tea because there is not much else you can do :)
I say go for the expensive stuff and treat yourself. I hope you don’t get any flooding. Sending positive vibes your way.
Assuming I am not at risk, sometimes I covet these days. If it’s chilly and it’s available I’ll light a fire in the fire place. If I’m with company we may play games or watch movies, or If I’m alone, I’ll read a thick book, with either a nice bottle of wine or something warm, tea, coffee, or chocolate, depending on my mood.
Perhaps a session with a resilient oolong? The constant boiling and pouring of water will keep you warm, and there’s more than enough time for a good, solid, long session when you’re trapped like that.
Or something bright and happy, a nice flavored tea, to manifest positive vibes from a cheerful cup.
I don’t really have a go to tea for rainy/bad weather days yet. Lol. Most of the stuff I have in my cupboard I haven’t even had a chance to try so on bad weather days (or on regular days even) I just stay in my pjs and pick a couple new teas with a good book or a few movies, assuming I don’t have to work (which I usually do unfortunately).
I was planning on trying a bunch of them today, but unfortunately I had to run to my parent’s house that got over a foot of water in a basement that has never flooded in the 20 years they’ve owned the house and had never flooded in anyone’s memory of the previous owners. x.x Slogging through mid-calf/ankle deep water to try and move waterlogged boxes really sucks.
Wish you luck and hope you don’t end up flooded.
chamomile. because it is usually in the evening, or hot chocolate.
I’d go for something rich and soothing – preferably something with chocolate/vanilla/caramel! Stay safe!
Great ideas everyone. I went with a lot of dark and roasty teas. The waters have receded luckily and though a lot of streets still closed. Still things are getting better. :)
