Today I had a cheat day on my diet and went out with friends to one of the restaurants (Bent) hosting Summerlicious, an event that has many Toronto restaurants serving 3-course prix fixe menus at reduced costs (similar to a DineLA or a DineNY). It was definitely an awesome way to go off the diet because it meant I got to have a little bit of everything (my 2 friends and I ended up ordering one of each option and just sharing them all). And to top it all off, we went for ice cream in Kensington market afterwards because why not :P. Anyways, by the time I came home, I felt like I could roll into my house but I wanted tea so I decided to make the easiest one I could think of – this since it is premeasured in its bag and I can steep forever and it would still be good. Plus, its mint and you get mints at the end of big meals so it just seemed like the right pick.
Anyways, I was about to get ready to settle in for the night and drink my tea but then my brother told me we had to go to the park to fight at a Pokemon gym so off we went, leaving my hot tea sitting on my night stand. Well, we did manage to take over the park and then went in search of a supposedly nearby Haunter. Unfortunately, he ended up being on the other side of a row of houses and when we looped around (as opposed to cutting through people’s backyards at 11:30 at night) we lost him. So, I returned home, showered, and am now finally getting to drink my cold tea. Tbh, its still just as good. Honestly, it is creamy and buttery and has just the right amount of mint to keep things fresh and clean. Though the hot cup would have been preferable, this is still a nice way to end off the day.
