970 Tasting Notes
Nom. I adore this one, especially when I’m sick. It is just my happy place. It’s so soothing and tasty and mmmm. Had two cups yesterday at work and likely another two today. Nom nom nom. I also made a hot toddy with this on Tuesday night…delicious! The licorice and whiskey worked together in a odd, but wonderful, way.
Made a big pot of this to have cold at work yesterday, whee!! Kept me alive for a few extra hours, at least.
Made a hot toddTea with this and for a glorious half hour, I could breathe. Too bad the one thing that helped me the most today is the one thing I can’t take into work with me tomorrow >.s the point then?
Anyway. It was delicious! Much better than a toddy made with just water. Might have to try one with Buttered Rum later…
Bleeeeegh. Was up half the night with a sore throat from hell and coughing. I was too afraid to take NyQuil because if I was going to call in sick, I needed to call in around 10, and I’ve never called in sick to this job before and since they’re not real big on giving us proper breaks, I was worried about calling in and wanted to give as much notice as I could. (I was due in at 1).
Anyway. I just talked to the office manager and she said to feel better and give her a call in a few hours to let her know if I’d be able to make it in tomorrow. Painless as all get out. Because they were so great about not giving me crap about calling in so soon after being hired, I really want to be back on top tomorrow and be able to get back to work. It’s amazing what a little courtesy towards your staff can do! Anyhoo, I am chugging this and Bravissimo and about to take some NyQuil so I can beat this cold.
I can’t speak much for taste because my tastebuds are all out of whack, but it did help my throat a bit and my sinuses are writing me thank you notes as we speak XD. I much prefer this over Gail’s Cold Remedy, so I might stock up before the winter season starts.
Okay, off to gargle salt water, do a shot of honey, lemon, and cayenne, and then drink just enough NyQuil to push me into a nap.
So much love for this tea. I’m having a “Oh hey, it’s nice out, have some allergies” kind of day, so I reached for a green. My only issue with this is I pretty much can’t have it at work. If I get boiling water from somewhere, it’s too hot. Davids doesn’t make it drinkable for me, and my travel press doesn’t stop the steeping enough. And it seems a crime to drink this one cold. A criiiiiime.
Ahwell. This will just be one for me to enjoy at home .
I ended up with two big cups of this yesterday, I took a break from work to go get myself one and a few hours later when I met up with my wife, she had gotten me one too! . Best wife ever, folks. I love the watermelon flavor and I love even more that it comes from straight up real watermelon. Nom nom nom. So tasty. The oolong is a bit strong for me, but it’s still delicious. This place is bad for my wallet. Luckily I’m not in Square One but 1-2 times a week.
After work yesterday, De and I met up with the awesome Indigobloom who came bearing tea! Yay! She’s super adorable, guys. For reals.
I’m still half asleep…back to bed with me, methinks.
Oooh, but I do have new mates to try…..hmmm….
This was my iced tea for work yesterday. Not bad, but not great either. I picked up a bag of this shortly after Cooking Simplicitea started, wanting to try a few recipes with it. I never did, and I kinda regret that. I might have to experiment with this, but I don’t see myself just drinking it again and when it’s gone, well…I won’t be sad.
Last summer, the store where my wife works had a tons of boxes of this, the English Breakfast, and the Earl Grey. They didn’t sell well and went on crazy discount, so she brought them all home to me. I was so excited. I love me some cold tea. Well, I still had quite a few boxes left at the end of summer, so I stuffed them into the back of the pantry and forgot about them.
Fast forward to this summer. None of the places where I work give me access to a kettle and I’m running around so much that I really just want something cold to drink. I’ve taken to trying to remember to make a pot of tea the night before and chilling it overnight so I’ll have some in the morning, but I’ve been beyond exhausted when I get home and it just slips my mind. These have become a lifesaver. It takes 2-3 bags to put some actual flavor into the tea, but I’m also using a 24 oz camelbak. Still, I love it. It’s not as amazing as it was to me last summer, I still prefer looseleaf teas chilled overnight, but when faced with bagged tea vs. soda or crystal light or plain water, I’m going to reach for bagged tea.
