A tea bag from Derk. Well, I think itwill be only US political tea bag I will have in my collection. Thank you, I bet others will envy me.

And it is 9.22 pm now. Which means, of course, a caffeine-free “tea”. Moreover I am still somehow hyped from energy drink I had to buy in a vending machine – in a work.

Peach and mint? Plus rooibos? Combo. Weird combo. We will see. I think I let it steep for 5+ minutes. Dunno exact time. Makes golden-bronze-copper colour.

Eh, okay. The smell is bit funky. Peach, but artificial, mint reminds me bit bubblegum, all together with woody scents.

Maybe I am bit sad that my (Swiss) friend is in Ecuador now? I feel like somebody betrayed me. Another friend (that one I was on his place while kids were in my home) is in Italy now. And I am just working every day. And then? I will spend it all on University. Okay, something I can take away, but I will need it later to pay it. Ahhhh! I need week off on holidays (and I know I just returned yesterday from one). But somewhere alone probably. Just enjoying the life. I was thinking about Austria. Gonna find out if it will work.

I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can’t rely on myself

Tea itself is, actually quite okay. Not great. It reminds me really a bubblegum. Minty taste with sweet taste of artificial peaches. I did not liked it as much as I expected.

Flavors: Artificial, Peach, Spearmint, Sweet

It’s hard when your friends are scattered all over creation and not nearby for some eyeball-to-eyeball time when you need it!

gmathis: luckily, it is not so bad. I just felt bit blue yesterday :)

Hope your “color” continues to improve! And regarding the tea—peach + rooibos is generally good, or any fruit tea + mint, but like you, I’m not sure about all three together. I have so much mint growing on my back porch, I have plenty to experiment with … I may have to try it with a straight-up peach tea.
