Okay, so we had this crazy weekend. Especially crazy Saturday night. I love beer – so it is not hard for me to go a little overboard with it, especially if there’s reasons to celebrate and be merry in general. Yeah, Saturday night was fantastic. Sunday morning was NOT.
Luckily, I had this traveling box with me. I took some other teas with me, but none of them were herbals. And let me tell you, black tea didn’t do me much good. Since we were all hanging out at a fairly secluded cabin, my teaware was pretty limited there. I was using french press there for steeping most of the time but the guys at some point decided to make coffee in it and I couldn’t clean it out properly afterwards. Which made me decide on something in a bag: I opened the traveling tea box and I saw this lonely bag of Harney & Sons’ Peppermint sitting on top. I knew that it was exactly what I needed.
I generally don’t like tea blends that have any kind of mint in them but I will never underestimate the nice effects that straight mint can have on you. Occasionally I do have it. Like earlier today when I really needed it. It was agreeable, refreshing and pretty strong. It helped my tummy and my general well-being a notch or a notch and a half. Nothing miraculous, yet it was what I needed at the time.
