I was having a headache all day. I am guessing it is a mixture of lack of sleep, having all my energy and calories seeping out, etc… I decided to make this tea. I used up the last bag sent by adagio breeze . This helped a lot! I think I forgot to have my morning tea today. My tea habits have gone out the door. My electric kettle has rust; I do not have a tea kettle; and my pots are teflon coated which alters the flavor of the water, so I have been microwaving my water. So, I haven’t been able to enjoy my oolongs, greens, or puerhs (I am pretty picky about how they are prepared).

Anyway, I didn’t have any milk, but the sugar was good enough with it. I put in some condensed milk, which changed the flavor entirely. Good, robust morning tea overall; though this isn’t something I would purchase.

Your electric kettle is rusty?? Oh dear.

Yes I was surprised! I was cleaning it with vinegar and water once in a while, but I noticed a spot of rust at the bottom that I couldn’t remove. I didn’t think that could possibly happen! >_<

Yeah, it’s probably time to get a new kettle.

Thank you adagio breeze for this! Not really sure how to rate this one. This is a basic bagged CTC black tea. It is bitter, so it needs milk and sugar. It brews a dark brown color. There is no one definite black tea base that I can detect. It has a slight malty taste to it. I am still limiting myself to one cup of tea per day as I am breastfeeding. This one is convenient just because it is bagged.

So my baby girl, Daliya, was born on June 10! I haven’t been getting much sleep or much time for myself lately, but I have been drinking tea in the mornings. It has been very rough.

Anyway, I drank this tea this morning. Yummy with some milk and sugar. I need to eat and drink more in general. Bfeeding is taking a toll on me!
