My mom had her eye surgery, and it seems like it’ll be successful. I say “will” because she won’t be able to see out of it for weeks, and it takes three months to heal. But it looks like all will go well.

I tried this the other day but thought it wasn’t tasting note-worthy because I didn’t add enough leaf. The first cup was a little watery, barely malty. Just that faint classic DTT chocolate taste. Adding 2% milk drowned everything out and I was left with hot watered down milk.

Now, it’s much better. By the way, the dry leaf, to me, is more chocolatey than malty, again, that classic chocolate flavouring in DTT.

This second cup is maltier and more chocolatey. But the good part is that the maltiness puts a damper on the overwhelming sweetness that I personally experience when drinking a DTT dessert tea. I kind of wish it were maltier though. I was expecting MALT. This is a whisper of it. Ok, maybe louder than a whisper. But it doesn’t taste like a Whopper to me, sorry.

But it’s good. Wouldn’t buy it again, but finishing this will be relatively easy.

Oh jeez! That doesn’t sound like Lasik…why did she need eye surgery? I hope she recovers well!

Ah no, not Lasik. It was a combined vitrectomy and lens implant/cataract removal. Very high risk especially since she has glaucoma. And thanks, hope she does too!

It makes you realize just how much we take our sight/healthy eyes for granted.

Truly it does. Make her some feel better tea! :)
