Mmmmm just what I was after! For some reason, I’ve been all about the mint this week, and I am loving it!
Lately, because I’m trying to drink down my stash and I can’t waste too much time at work, I’ve been making two types of tea right when I get in. Sometimes even three, and then I ice one for the afternoon.
This one, I decided to ice… but when I tried the first steep, it was a little too much so I stuck the second one in the fridge instead and ohmygoodness was it ever perfect!!!
Something about the mint and green tea was so refreshing, and not bitter at all. I think that was partly because one serving is half the normal leaf used and the mint spruces it up so well.
For the iced version, I did add a tiny bit of agave. It really made a difference.
Then for the fourth and final steep I iced it again. That one was decent but nothing spectacular. It kept me going during my workout, and sane. There was a promo even at the gym, with a live lounge singer/“BB King” band and hired actors dressed up like famous celebrities. There was a puppet show (Bert n Ernie), Austin Powers, Cary Grant, Dr Evil/mini-me. Some free food.
Ugh, it was impossible concentrating! So yeah… I was counting on that tea to keep me focused! Concentrating on squats and dead-lifts with a live cover of the theme song from Titanic running in the background does not bode well for my poor overwhelmed brain.
Anyhow! I’m off to bed. Circuit training tomorrow, so the place had better be quiet…
BTW, my notices are MIA. It brings me to that error page. So my apologies for anything I miss!
