Yay! I finally got to the post office to pick up my kickstarter package from 52 Teas. This sinus infection has me so wrung out and tired that as soon as I’m done with work I just pour myself into my recliner and stare at the wall. LOL
Anyway, I squeed over the different teas in my package and couldn’t decide which to try first. I settled on this one because it’s getting on in the day and I didn’t want to battle caffeine. I’ve never had a honeybush before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. My sense of smell is gone so I don’t know what this one smells like, but I bet it’s marvelous. I brewed it overly long, since I forgot about it. Can I blame that on the sinus infection too? But 14 minutes didn’t ruin it at all. I didn’t get any particular flavor, but the tea was smooth. Not bitterness to make me squinch my eyes shut, no stinging astringency to make me pucker my mouth.
It’s a shame that I can’t smell, and to be honest I feel mighty sorry for myself. The few faint whiffs of scent I got in July make it even harder, now that I know what I’m missing. But it is what it is, and whining isn’t going to change it. At least I have tea that goes down smoothly. I can recommend this one .
