75

Made 2lbs of salt water taffy this week. Gave 1lb to my grandpa for his 80th birthday. The other 1lb is quickly being reduced to nothing from its bowl in my kitchen.
So today? It’s The Skinny. (Or, en français, La Svelte, which I prefer quite a bit!)
With the taste of root beer, vanilla and peppermint taffy (read: sugar, sugar, sugar) in my mouth like a coating, I feel confident that the gingery KA-BAM of La Svelte will be able to slice through to my tongue, throat and stomach and gently show me the error of my ways.
I hope so, at any rate.
Dude, you know… there’s something about the smell of this tea that makes me think of mop water. This one and Detox both. Maybe it’s the dried ginger? I’m not sure.
I mean, the TASTE certainly isn’t mop-watery at all. It’s just the smell. It’s not like I put the mug to my lips and inhale and go, “Mmm…”
The flavour isn’t amazing, but the AFTERTASTE is where it’s at.
Hot! Ginger! No more taffy for you, greedy little girl!
Okay, La Svelte.
I’ll stop. I promise.
(Now to chug my tea while it’s appropriately hot so it can cut some of the garbage in my tummy!)

I’m a work-at-home mum. Seeing as how I work in the basement at the computer and am too lazy to brew myself a cup of coffee each day, tea has become my drink-of-choice.
