I was reading one of my classmate’s essays for senior seminar and it was about her family—her mom, specifically. It was so well written that it made me homesick for my mom. Two of the things that remind me of her is a cherry-almond lotion and Constant Comment.
Sometimes, nothing satisfies you more than grocery store tea. I have a feeling that I will always have some Constant Comment somewhere in the house.
Going off of the Earl Grey Lemonade, I decided to try a different flavor of tea. I decided to try Constant Comment for the tea because of the orange and I thought the spices would give it an interesting kick. If you choose something with orange, you would want an extra teaspoon of sugar to go in it or else it is a little too tart (for my liking at least). The spices give a very interesting flavor that is like a little kick in the mouth.
The lemonade paired with the tea makes it a little mouth-drying, but I think that would go really well with a summer meal. Refreshing and cleansing. And my fiance loves it too. I had him taste it and almost lost my glass.
I have spent the last hour cleaning the house. It was a bit of an adventure because my brother decided to act up and resulted in me locking him out of the house with no shoes until he decided to cooperate. He decided that he likes helping me with housework after having to take the trash out anyway. I think we have reached an agreement with doing housework.
I still have to do dishes, but I decided to have a cup of tea first. Last bag of the box.
Backlogging from Vacation #2:
I only drank one bag of this last week and I have one more to go. I am going to be sad to see this one go, but I kinda want to see if I can find a loose leaf version of it. It might be even better.
I don’t know who is making the scones this year, but they are doing it fantastically. The outside is crunchy and the inside is nice and soft. Hot with butter, they are so good.
I only have one cup of my other breakfast tea left that I am saving for Tuesday. From now on, I’ll probably be drinking this in the morning. It is very nice plain and it stands up to my eggs in the morning.
I drank two cups of this at dinner today to get my brain working again. If I can just do all of my work tonight and make it until Wednesday, then I can survive this week.
Warm with milk for lunch. I think this actually become a comfort tea at school because it reminds me of my mom.
Wow, I was away for a very long time because life and school dominated for a while. But I am back with tea samples that Ashely sent to me. Thank you! I can’t wait to try them.
I had my first cup of tea (in a long time) today at lunch. I am glad I did. I was feeling stuffed up and it made me feel better.
Backlogging from lunch today
This always makes a nice cup with a meal. I find it to be just light enough for a mid-day meal and satisfying enough that I don’t want anything else right away.
The next time I wake up before my alarm and think that I don’t need to make myself a tumbler of tea to take to class, I have to smack myself and make one anyway. It helps me to be more alert in the morning and I always need that Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
I must have been feeling homesick because when I thought of some tea to go with supper, I immediately opened my box and grabbed a bag of Constant Comment. Made with hot water from the water spicket, it was comforting and tasted nice.
I then went to one of my friend’s rooms to get some command strips and she gave me two tea samples to try: Twinings Herbal Revival: Cherries and Madagascan Cinnamon and London Fruit & Herb Rosehip with Hibiscus. They both sound good and I am looking forward to trying them. Especially with rosehip with hibiscus, which are both flavors I have been dying to try.
My cafeteria is running out of tea. I had a choice between this tea and some green tea. Since I didn’t really want green tea, I went with this.
The first glass I had tasted like pumpkin. I think I was impatient and I didn’t let it steep for very long. I think it was more like two and a half minutes than my usual four. And I put some normal milk in it. It reminded me less of gingerbread and more of pumpkin pie.
Then my friend came down to eat with me and I had a second cup. I decided to experiment a little. I let it steep longer (it had a stronger flavor so I must have steeped it around four minutes this time). Then I put chocolate milk in it. It was fantastic! It was this nice spicy chocolate flavor. It was just a little sweet but it didn’t overpower the tea. I was so glad I had this version at the end of my meal because it tasted more like a dessert tea to me this time. I might have to try putting a little bit of chocolate milk in the rest of my teas and see what it does to them.
