Hot with milk. Very tired from work. Can’t wait to find a real career. Just one more day of work then I can simultaneously collapse and research. Life is hard.
Last of my bagged tea, but it is so comforting! Hot with milk and now I have no more English Breakfast tea.
I need comfort since I am dreading work tomorrow. With milk. Yum.
So, I was super exhausted because my body was trying to get sick, which it succeeded in doing today. Had to call off of work (feel really bad about that), but I have a doctor’s appointment in the afternoon. I don’t have my next work day until Saturday, so I will hopefully be better by then. Maybe I’ll be able to make one of my other teas today.
Wow, I forgot how strong bagged teas can be. This one was steeped for only three and a half minutes and I even put milk in it. And it is decaf (by accident) and I still think it is strong. I needed a good black tea for in the mornings now since I’m working weekends at McDonalds, but I didn’t expect an English Breakfast to wake me up as much as an Irish Breakfast.
I am going to be prepared for the weekend now!
SIPDOWN! Hot with milk as an after dinner tea. Last bag of the decaf one. I have been reluctant to drink this for a lack of any other breakfast teas but I went to the store and got some more breakfast tea for school. English and Irish respectively. I’m happy.
Had this hot this morning with a drop of Silk vanilla soy milk. It was fantastic and yummy! Put me in a very good mood for today.
Backlogging from Dinner:
Had this hot with milk with dinner. Very nice and comforting after a hard morning.
Backlogging from Brunch
Our school doesn’t do breakfast and lunch on Saturdays anymore. So, we have to wait until later to actually eat on the weekends. That makes me a little sad. But, this is always an awesome tea to have with a meal. Hot with milk, as usual.
I am also trying to figure out what to use to record a possible once-a-week knitting videocast. I found some things to use on my computer, but I’m not sure if they are the best ones to use or not. This will be an interesting process.
I needed a plain milk tea today at lunch to go with my soup and couscous. This filled the slot quite nicely and tasted good. It is nice to actually have enough milk in my milk tea instead of a dribble of milk that happened last time.
I am also finding out that water from the hot water spicket to make tea with is better than no tea at all.
Backlogging: This Morning
I woke up with either bad gas or indigestion, so my sides hurt really badly. It took all I had to get out of bed and get dressed. So, I managed to get hot water out of the spicket in our cafeteria and make this tea with a trickle of milk. (A literal trickle. I would have put more in there if they had more and I wanted real milk instead of soy this morning)
It helped me get through the morning and helped me feel better mentally even if it took until noon to get over my side cramps.
I had this foul tasting honey at school. It came in a packet and it was awful. The honey was so bad that I had to put milk in it just so I could drink the tea. I was not wasting a cup and I really wanted tea this morning.
Note to self: don’t try anything different about this cup in the morning.
I forgot how good tea tasted when you took the time to boil the water in a kettle instead of using a microwave. I actually made this tea in my little red teapot that I got at a fair this summer. I have no idea how long I steeped it, but I only used one bag for a two-cup pot.
My first cup I had with a little bit of milk. The second cup I had half plain and then half with a little bit of honey. Drinking out of actual teacups makes me feel fancy. I might have to pick a little teacup or two up for school. It would be nice for study breaks. Especially since most of my schoolwork will be sit down, read this, and comment on it.
I’m boosting the rating up a little bit because it does taste so much better with boiled water, but it is still unexciting.
After reading some reviews of different chocolate teas, I decided that I would really like a cup of chocolate tea. There was only one problem: I didn’t have any chocolate tea. After some thinking, I came up with a compromise. Make a cup of this and add some chocolate milk to it.
It isn’t that bad either. I could have brewed the tea a little stronger for more of a tea taste, but the black tea is there. It lingers at the back of your throat at the last minute. The milk mellowed the tea out a lot. More so than plain milk. I’m not sure why.
If I was going to do this again, I think I would pick a stronger tea to do it with. Probably something like Irish Breakfast so the tea would stand out more. Or break down and get some chocolate tea and try it. This will do fine in a pinch though.
Backlogging from Tuesday morning and This Morning
I swear, this tea saves me in the morning. Hot with milk. I need to either find a bigger tumbler or just prepare two tumblers in the morning because one is not enough. I am almost out of this tea too, so I will have to get more “breakfast” tea soon.
I have been craving tea all day today and I finally remembered to make myself a cup at dinner. Hot with milk. I found out that the water from the spicket is heated up until 205 degrees. So, now I know how hot it is.
Made a tumbler of this before class with milk (a good portion of milk this time, not just a dribble). Ended up drinking all of it before class, but didn’t have enough time to get more water, milk, and tea to make another tumbler full. Apparently, today was a tea morning.

Shared a pot of this tea with my boyfriend when he came over. I had mine with a little bit of milk and he had his plain. I really like making and sharing a pot of tea with him. It makes me feel good that we are sharing something that we both love. And it feels very social.
Hot with milk. Perfect to curl up to with a book on a rainy day.
I know I had something written here, but I don’t remember what it was. Probably something about me being boring with my tea choices lately and needing new tea.
I probably had this cup hot with milk. I really like this tea that way. Especially if I drink it in the morning.
