So exhausted today. I was up until 3 finishing a paper for class… probably wrote some things I shouldn’t have, but it was a “letter to my future self” so if I want to be honest/make jokes to future me, then I will. Whatever. I’m done with it.

I bought this tea over spring break but haven’t tried it yet because the smell turned me off… it smells like a Ricola cough drop – herbal and minty. Ricolas work wonders, and I force myself to eat them, but I really like the way they taste. They’re edible, obviously, but I wouldn’t take them if I didn’t like them.

But today is one of those days where I’m just so tired, my body is aching, I have a headache… I decided why not, I’ll try it.

It’s actually really really good. The citrus is there, but it’s not overpowering. The mint supports it without clashing. There’s a apple-and-mallow center to the flavor that balances it out and makes it really smooth.

I rarely add honey to teas (too much honey upsets my stomach) but I added about a teaspoon and a half (MUCH more than I’d usually add, if I did add any) of Savannah Bee Company’s Tea Honey, and it’s actually amazing. I know I’ll refill my tin of this when I go home for the summer.

…also, don’t know why everyone thinks this is Vampire Diaries related?

Vervaine basically serves the role of Garlic in the vampire diaries, it’s like vampire kryptonite. I had also never heard of it called vervaine until Missy started watching that show (it’s always been Lemon Verbena in my world).

…ohhh. Well then. Guess I’ll be safe tonight.
