drank Hazelnut by Adagio Teas
318 tasting notes

Needed a bit of a kick in the pants this morning. I was “supposed” to be in bed by 9:30. I ended up going to bed at 12:30 after spending three hours working on poetry critiques. The downside to being in an intro to creative writing class is that, even though it’s a prereq for the higher levels, there are a lot of beginning writers. Which isn’t a bad thing at all, but I spent SO much time in high school as editor in chief of our literary mag reading bad poetry that I’m a bit sick of it. I’m sure there are people in the class that are very good, we just haven’t gotten to them yet.

And then of course I had to be up at 6 for my 7:15 education seminar. The plus side is that I’m done with classes by 10:10… the downside is that I am NOT a morning person. Or I am, I just need my sleep. And I start student teaching today, so I went shopping and bought “professional” clothes… I feel like a kid playing dressup. But I LOOK LIKE AN ADULT. I don’t understand. I put on makeup and painted my nails and thought about jewelry and oh my goodness how is this me?!

Just a bit stressed. I’m sure it’ll be fine. T-minutes two hours until I meet my teacher.

Sigh, tea.

I like this one. Hazelnut is one of the few nuts I’m not especially allergic to – I don’t even know if I am allergic, but after walnuts I get a terrible headache.

it’s bold and nutty and really good in the morning. Not a very good tasting note but I just had to rant.

Good luck with the student teaching. Nuts allergy is one of the worst i’m not sure i would take the chance of drinking something with nuts inside if i was having any kind of reaction from other nutty thing but nutty tea are good

Michelle

Yeah, it’s weird. Walnuts on their own are okay as long as I don’t have too many, but if I eat them cooked or in conjunction with chocolate I get a weird sort of headache. I tried Forever Nuts from David’s and I got the same feeling, but I don’t get it from hazelnut or almond teas. But I’ve never had any sort of allergic reaction, which is good!

Very teacherly looking photo, Michelle, & I like the Dr. Who reference! :) Have fun today!

there is nuts intolerance which is less severe than a allergy and nuts are not all the same you should probably get a allergy test sometime to be sure which one to avoid ( i read myself and i do sound like a old man giving lesson to kids shouting stop running around the pool! lol but that was not the purpose i did see what nuts can do within minute with a real allergy so it’s more of a general concern to fellow steepsters be aware of what in teas)

As for the picture you do not look like the teachers i have last time i was in school ( 10 years ago) but that a compliment

At least it isn’t Vogon poetry. Paula Nancy Millstone isn’t in that class, is she? And you do look VERY adult, not like a kid playing dress up at all! Your teacher will be impressed!

OMAM is delightful! =) You do look like an adult! Just rock it.. have faith in your abilities and a commanding presence and everyone wont be able to help but see you as an adult.

Michelle

Thank all you guys! It actually went really well today, and I’m excited and not terrified for the rest of the semester, haha :)
