Must get more…

Must buy larger container next time…

I had quite the day, Dr’s with poor “bedside manner” and jerk like atittudes meets this tea… everything almost seems okay now.

Maybe I am starting to understand the more subtle notes of “black teas” but today detected floral scents under the manderine and spice. Soothing to the soul and the fractured sense of self – gotta love Dr’s and their ability to make one feel not only fat, but lazy all at once, and all because of a swollen, black finger… that is what I went in for and I came out with a sense of fat and lazy.

Delicious tea, to the point that I think I might be ready to venture into tasting straight blacks, no added flavours….

Hopefully the lab will garner conclusive results and show the Dr that he should stick to teh concern at hand… my puffy black finger that needs attention, and not my body fat, apparently my puffy black finger is a sign of high cholesterol… WFT?!

But I digress, this tea is delicious… I should buy more, soon.

I hear ya sistah! I’m a healthy, active, vegan who is.. well, let’s say curvy. My doctors never cease to hastle me about about loosing weight. One had me talk to a nutritionist, which I was pleased to do, and low and behold I have an exceedingly healthy diet and my bloodwork looked great. Assholes! ((((hugs))))

eeek! Me to. Doctors suck sometimes.
I have naturally high cholesterol, created by my body, not the food I intake. I eat a very healthy diet and exercise often yet I still have the pot belly!
No matter— I have tea :)

I wanted to tell the Dr. to eat S…T! because all 10 vials of blood work came back fine AND my cholesterol is lower than the “expected average for my age, and weight”

Indigobloom

ahhh, that would have been priceless… the look on his face. Maturity begone, sometimes people deserve a little wakeup call! :)

I love to read and what goes better with reading than a hot cup of tea on rainy winter nights and an ice-cold tea on a hot summers day?

I used to drink copious amounts of coffee but that was just a joke, because I never drank enough water to flush out that one cup of coffee (32oz of water to 8oz of coffee?!?) and the variety in tea gives me what I need – it is not often I will drink the same thing twice.

Tea is defiantly more gentle on the waistline… Espcially since when I crave apple pie I can reach for a cup of “Mom’s Apple pie” or if I want caramel corn for my movie night, I just have to brew a cup of “Movie Night”…

I definitely have a preference for Oolongs, flavoured Blacks and a select number of flavoured Rooibos.

I love you tea, this can only get better as the extra weight continues to tapper off!

Oh, did I mention I am a reader, a childcare worker, a teacher, a friend, a sister and so many other things in a day?
