drank Peppermint by Celestial Seasonings
186 tasting notes

Since I spent most of the night (and the night isn’t over, since I’m typing this at 3 am) curled in the fetal position, I figured I could use something calming and soothing.

I didn’t want any traces of caffeine at all, and I didn’t think I could stomach another round of chamomile, so in this goes.

All I know is that it’s getting staler tasting and weirder tasting, and the only redeeming value of this guy is that minty aftertaste. Which tastes stale now. Which is sort of the antithesis of mint, but whatever.

This has not been the best of days in a string of just plain sucky days, so I guess it’s appropriate that the tea has been mediocre as well.

Oh no. It sounds like you had a long, rough night to top off a long, rough week. I have a few samples of caffeine-free tea I’m supposed to be trying right now, so should I stumble upon a few delicious ones, I will be sure to know who to pass them along to!

Thanks guys! My cramps really take a lot out of me, and turn me into this cranky, sad mess that really can’t handle much of anything. I just keep taking an Advil every 4-6 hours and wait for these bad days to pass, because yeah, they’re bad.

Aww, hugs. I hope you find a happier tea for when these arrive.

Bio

22-year-old NYC girl just starting out on her tea adventures! I used to hate tea. If you asked me a few years ago what I thought of tea, I’d tell you it tasted like hot, dirty dishwater. Not anymore! I acquired a taste for tea when I started drinking peppermint tea for my upset stomach problems. From there I graduated to teas like chamomile and Lipton. But Lipton wasn’t strong enough!

I’m getting the hang of this loose leaf thing. Black’s my default, but I’ve found that I really love teas that fall into every category. I’m a purist – I always drink my tea neat. I prefer unflavored tea over flavored tea, and really dislike anything flavored with artificial-tasting substances. I’ve grown up a bit in my tea drinking, and I find that novelty appeals to me less and less.

I also am the happy girlfriend of the boy that created the tea randomizer, which can be found here: http://www.jaydeee.net/pickatea.php
