Had this one steeped in-store and iced a few days ago and wasn’t overly fond of it, so last night I decided to use up the 18g or so I had left and make a pitcher. I’m in a “clean out my tea closet” kind of mood, so I’m focusing on drinking all of my samples and all of my bags that just have 1-2 servings left in them.

So I was making tea last night, and opened a drawer to get something. The cord of the electric kettle was wrapped around the edge of the drawer and it started to fall. Idiot that I am, I instinctively reached out to catch it and instead I caught boiling water over my arm. So much fail.

Anyway, this tea is juicy and good, but I don’t think it will be replaced in our cupboard. We’ll see how I feel about it after I’ve finished this pitcher.

Ouch! Hope you’re not hurt to badly!!

I hope it feels better soon. Burns are the worst kind of pain. Lots of cool compresses (and Ibuprofen!)

oh dear that’s terrible… Is it blistering badly? winces

It’s actually not blistering at all, but it is swollen and red, getting darker my the minute, and hurts like a mofo. grumbles So it’s not too bad, but it’s not too good either.

Indigobloom

oh that’s really good. I spilled boiling water on my hand once and it was nasty. Doc said to keep it moisturized and apply vitamin E daily… my scar is gone now, thank god!

yeah, I won’t be covered my OHIP for another month (grumble), so we’re avoiding the doc.

Indigobloom

oh dear. well it sounds like you’ll be ok, so just don’t let it swell! Ice Ice Ice baby :)

I burnt my arm with oil once when searing a roast. Horrible feeling. Definately keep it moisturized and maybe ask at the pharmacy if they have a cream you can get without a prescription to help it.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
