I began having chills. And sniffles. And cold feet. All a sure sign of something up and that it is time to take action before something even more unpleasant develops.
All this may have something to do with me sitting in a draughty place in front of the door to the outdoors repeatedly opening and closing.
So, clearly a moment for medicinal tea. Something powerful and effective for moments like these. Ginger sounded like a good idea.
I open the pouch. Peppermint. And that furniture polish lemongrass scent overpowering the ginger. Why does that lemongrass torment me so?
This tea reminds me of DT’s The Big Chill or Mother’s Little Helper— though I prefer MLH— or the sort of generic sleepy time teas: minty, green, medicinal, and somehow murky. With a bit of a bitter kick from the licorice.
The flavour is ok, I suppose. I don’t enjoy it particularly, but I am drinking this tea in hopes of getting the job done.
I will finish a cup or two of this tea while smothering myself in a fleecy blanket and hoping for warm feet and wellness.
Flavors: Lemongrass, Licorice, Peppermint
