When the going gets tough, the tough drink tea.
What a awful week.
The mediation on Monday went awfully, then I went to the funeral of a friend, and got cornered and verbally attacked 3 different times by 3 different people over something I had nothing to do with, came home, wept bitterly and then had a 36 hour long migraine.
Today, I am feeling better.
Decide to treat myself with this tea, I make a ceremony with the preparation.
Hoping it will bring the tranquility and strength I need.
Only to have 2 wasps promptly sting me as I just get situated on the porch with this tea and my book.
I spill the whole glass and nearly break my cup.
I come in the house, sad and depressed over this whole dad blame week, but as I am grabbing ice for my stings I think “NO! Screw this!” grab a handful of ice and throw it in the blender, add milk and a large scoop of this matcha and a bit of agave syrup and ferociously blend.
Pour into a glass with a straw and AHHHHhhhhhhh!
Its like a large Malted Milk Shake. SO tasty and decadent.
So screw tradition, Hesper June is doing it her way!
Which I think is paying off, because a friend just called and said we are going to get our nails and hair done tomorrow, her treat.
So, here to the rest of the week being wonderful, even if I have to throw it in a blender and add ice!

Sometimes when meditation fails it helps to take something into a field and smash it with a sledge hammer.

Ha! Thanks Azzrian! I might have to try that;)

I’m so sorry to hear about your bad week. I hope things get better!

Hesper June

Thanks Amy:) I am determined to not let a couple of days ruin a whole week!

Awesome. I was thinking salvaging this week would require C-4. Who knew it could be turned around with a blender…. I wonder where ours is…

May the rest of the week be wonderful, indeed! I have found that funerals often bring out the worst in people…sorry you were in the line of fire.

KS, Blenders are awesome. I use mine to make my Healthy Breakfast Smoothie every morning, plus you can blend Matcha Ice Lattes and if all else fails they blend up Margaritas;)
Thanks Ashmanra, I am thinking you are right, it was just a highly emotional time and they needed a punching bag:)

Oh man, I’m sorry this week has teeth. I hope it’s better for you soon!

Bio

A Farmer’s Wife who drinks her tea to forget the din of the world.
Love all tea, from black to herbal concoctions.
Usually start my day with black tea and then move on to Oolong or Green in the afternoon, then finish the day with a tisane.
Loose Leaf teas are my preference, I say “Free the Leaves!” :)
When I am not drinking tea, I enjoy knitting, baking, reading, playing with one of our rescue animals or working along side my husband on our farm.

My rating system is rather relaxed:
50’s or under- Um, is this tea or did I get this from the slop bucket?
60’s- Not really my thing, certainly will not be purchasing again.
70’s- I will give this tea a few more tries to see if it grows on me , right now it is okay but not thrilling me.
80’s- Like this tea a lot. It might be a tea that I have to be in a certain mood for and therefore not a daily drinker, but try to have on hand for those “moods”
90’s and higher- ADORE! Will never be without!

I most always drink my tea plain.
No sweeteners or milk/cream.
