We arrived at Duke Medical this morning for the removal of the skin cancer about a quarter of an inch from my eye. The paperwork had said to eat a good breakfast as most people can expect to stay from three to five hours, and to be prepared to send for a lunch. I had Carnation Instant Breakfast at 5 am and brought a granola bar and bottled water with me. Lo and behold, we get here and there is lovely classical music playing, Panera muffins and bagels, and TEA! That’s right, two wooden chests of Bigelow tea with lots of varieties to choose from and a dispenser for hot water, coffee, and hot chocolate. (Hubby had the hot chocolate and said it was the best he had ever tasted made with hot water. I use milk to make mine.)
This was my first tea. It was a good, solid, English style tea. I chose this nstead of the breakfast tea because even though additions were available – heck, they even have cream cheese for the bagels – I wanted to take it straight.
I won’t pretend this is fine tea. It didn’t make me swoon. But for something you could plop in a cup of hot water and drink in a waiting room, it did a nice job. Now on to the Bigelow Green…
Oh, the nurse says they got it all on the first try! Soon, Pottery Barn and Tin Roof Teas! :)
