What a little lifesaver! At my job, there’s really no such thing as a sick day. If you can’t make it to a shift, you have to find someone to cover you. If you can’t, you have to come in. So I sliced off hours where I could (only weeks after asking for more hours, go me!), but there was no real chance for me to just rest at home for a few days. So every morning I made three travel mugs of hot tea. Cold 911, Bravissimo, and usually Detox with the occasional Santa’s Secret thrown in. This tea saved my life and kept the cough away long enough for me to do my job.

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!
