Don’t faint. It’s a pain in the butt. After bloodwork and a cardiogram came back fine, I am now being sent to do cardio tests and neurological exams. Today I had to get an echocardiogram and get a holter monitor for 24 hours. Now, there is a location. Literally 3 minutes from my house but they didn’t have availability until May 20th and since I’m without my license until I know what’s up, I didn’t want to wait that long. Instead I got to go to the downtown area in rush hour traffic. Definitely not fun.
There was a plus though. Coming back from the doctor, we (my mother and I) passed by many places where my mom stopped to get me all my favorites. We also passed by Sil’s which meant I could pick up my part of the shared AQTT order (thank you Sil again for arranging it!). So despite walking around hooked up to wires, I have been one happy girl today. In fact, we even almost got a puppy.
Now I’m sipping on this tea and watching American Gods. The dry leaf of this smelled amazing, by the way, reminding me of Butiki’s Lemon French Macaron. Alas that may have set unreasonably high expectations. This tea is good. Quite good but as good as it is, I was still disappointed because of the Butiki comparison.
If I push out the comparison and look at this for its own tea, I will admit it’s a pretty great creamy lemon option. Lemon zest goodness that just borders on the edge of pledge in its strength but without going over. The base contributes a dessert sweetness that helps create the idea of cake. It’s a really nice tea, a little astringent maybe, but nice enough that I wish I grabbed a bit more than a sample which got used up in this cup.
