I’m starting with a cup of this tea this morning, it was a good luck gift from a friend. The good luck part was due to me needing a doctors appointment to tell them my physiotherapist has recommended I get some orthotics for my torn ankle ligament (that is still giving me hell 2 months down the line). After two weeks of trying I finally managed to book an appointment so all I can do now is wait to be picked up by taxi and taken to what I consider to be the second circle of hell….NHS health care.
I’m not really complaining about all of the NHS, after all they saved my husband last year from cancer and my mother from cancer a few years earlier. My doctors however is given my district and I have to attend what is mentioned as being the worst GP’s office in Leicester. The staff are rude, the doctors are all temp and don’t care and I know I’m going to have to sit in the waiting room for over an hour because “the doctor is running late”.
As you can see I am getting stressed just thinking about going….around an hour or so now for my actual appointment. It’s times like this that I go for green tea as it soothes me. Sipping this I can see lemon tree’s and green tea plants next to each other in a peaceful and quiet far away land with millions of cats running around and playing. sigh of relief It’s wonderful.
Taste wise it’s a little bitter and by far not the best that I have on my shelf but I appreciate the thought of receiving this as a gift so that takes away some of the harshness.
It’s lemony and fairly fresh tasting for bagged tea but great to grab to take to work for convenience.
I ranted I now but right now I am not looking forward to getting orthotics, a large plastic cast that is worn around the ankle and makes me stand out in a crowd (which is always the last thing I want)…..oh joy.
