Alright. Way behind on my paper, feeling lethargic, left eye is swollen and sore, would rather be in bed. I need a serious kick in the pants, so I brewed this up nice and strong. And then I realized that I had no milk. I’ve told myself to stop buying milk, so that makes sense. But, I really like milk in my breakfast tea and this looked hazardously dark and strong without it. As a result, this is my first experience with coconut milk in tea. Not bad! It doesn’t taste coconutty at all, actually, just a little lighter.
As for the tea itself, this has been my preferred breakfast tea since it came into my life. Malty and rich but really nice and smooth. Delicious!
A+++ breakfast tea! Managed to get me out the door for a weekend of suburban family functions. This is malty and rich and it absolutely loves milk.
I needed something comforting this morning after waking up with the news of Jack Layton’s death, and nice strong Assam with a hefty dose of cream was it. After watching some great but sad tributes to him, this and reading his last letter (http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/story/2011/08/22/pol-layton-last-letter.html) helped perk me up as much as possible. So very heartbreaking, though. It’s rare for there to be a political leader, especially a Canadian leader, that the people can so unanimously look up to. At least I think we can be confident that he’s left quite the legacy of hope and change.
