Augh I went to some friends’ house last night to play Cards Against Humanity (offensive/evil/awesome if you’re a terrible person game like Apples to Apples) and of course the house rules were winner of the round chooses someone to take a shot. Four shots and four hours of sleep later, I am not feeling so nice this morning and wishing I hadn’t made plans to meet a friend for Ethiopian for lunch. Of course I don’t have anything good for hot tea with me so I’m drinking iced tea before 8am. I’m already on my second glass of this because holy dehydration.

This brews up super light. It’s kind of worrying at first but it definitely has flavor. It’s not particularly green apple to me, but it’s apparent the fruit flavor is apple, with a bit of kiwi. I’m surprised it’s as good as it is because I’ve learned not to expect much of anything kiwi flavored.

The base tea is okay, it gets bitter way too easily which is tough when the tea looks like water even after 2 1/2 minutes. That’s really about the limit of this it seemed like, but the temperature might have been a bit higher. It’s easy to just drink down which I attribute to it pretty much just tasting like flavored water for the most part. I’m wondering if it really needs the space to steep in like a basket rather than a t-sac, but I wasn’t in the mood to strain. Next time I’ll try that though so maybe the green can really show through in a more delicious manner.

Why do I watch a sport that requires getting up early? At least its something interesting, two people I know were watching Australian hockey last night and I do NOT get it at all. Who seriously cares? One of said friends from last night is Australian and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t care about it. I guess it’s impossible for some people to get a life in the offseason or something. I ranted about this for half an hour before bed apparently but SERIOUSLY this one girl is STILL UP now watching this stuff.

I loooooove Apples to Apples! Most entertaining when played with people who are willing to have a bit of fun! (E.g. not my parents.)

Aha! I knew I’d heard someone talk about Cards Against Humanity before! The guy I (am dating??) mentioned it a while back, and it sounded so familiar but I couldn’t place it. Mystery solved :D
