Today has not been a good day as far as my appetite goes, and I’m only just now having my first cup of tea for the day. It’s a day for comfort food, and being fairly late in the day, not a good time for caffeine. As such, this tea called to me.
Constant Comment is one of the first teas that I fell in love with as a child. While that was the original, caffeinated version, I find there’s very little difference between the two in taste. (Still, I’ll be doing a review of the other some time in the future. Both are definitely staples in my tea stock.)
Drinking this tea is like coming home. It needs a fair amount of sugar to find its perfect spot, but it’s wonderful when it’s there. The orange rind and spices are in one of my favourite blends in this tea (I like it much more than most of the Christmas teas with similar combinations), and…. well, as I said, this is really my comfort food version of tea.
Thank goodness for Constant Comment. Thank goodness for its decaffeinated cousin. Sometimes… sometimes it’s just the perfect thing when I need a cup of comfort and relaxation.
