So on a DavidsTea run today to pick up some of the new tins, I asked for a cup of something lemony to cut through the mucus from the bronchitis my mother in law so generously shared with me. I had a cut of Bravissimo going, but while that was tasty and soothing indeed, it was kind of adding to the problem. When I got there, I asked for something lemony, and I was offered this and three lemon green. I went for this, as I kinda needed a caffeine boost too. It was a really, really shitty morning. Almost a “walk out on my job and tell them to stuff it” morning.

Anyway. I let it steep too long (boo) and I had honey instead of my usual sugar. Still, it was soothing and helped restore my voice, so yay for that. Still, I don’t think it’s one I’d reach for again.

If you have some Electric Lemon left, it would definately do the trick! Unfortunately, DT has since yet to wow me with a lemon tea. Maybe the best (and healthiest and most efficient) means to kill your killer throat mucus would be to squeeze some real lemon into a tea??
PS Cough over your boss as revenge

Yeah, usually I reach for honey lemon tea, aka hot water with honey and lemon juice, but that just wasn’t an option today. Ah well, next time!

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
