Thank you so much Evol! I kept on staring at this for months going “Do I want this herbal? It smells so good…never mind I’m having some chamomile…Well, I should finally try this-oh, look, I need to finish of my green rooibos!…I’m going to get some-crap! High bloodsugar. This might not be a good idea-but the sugar is only in the sprinkles! But flavored tea on a high bloodsugar makes my stomach cramp…”
And finally, I needed an herbal last night. There are only few hours before my last semester begins at Michigan State. Despite technically going back for my student teaching the following year, that will be more like “work”. This will be the year that I will graduate. It’s like being at the last two chapters of a book. Luckily, there will be a few months before the release of the sequel. Unfortunately, this book is about to end and there will be time before the next installment. Let’s hope that character development is more interesting, and that there are less characters written off. Thus the sheer existential stress said that going without caffiene was the better option…never mind I drank a Dan Cong three hours before at 8:00 PM.
The tea was pretty lovely for comfort. More like pancakes and maple syrup than pure cakes, the red rooibos worked pretty well. Then again, I’ve had a vanilla rooibos with rock sugar one time and it tasted like a vanilla flavored and creamed coffee. Red rooibos, you are so elusively woody yet desserty at the same time. I got three solid cups, the thirds lighter. I am going to check it again this morning to see if I can brew one more cup. To think I was watching The Crown on Netflix when I drank this.
