I had a seriously awful day yesterday. Today, while not much better, is calmer and less chaotic.
The rant – I’ve been weathering the flu, my new boss started working on Tuesday, and we were short staffed. Students poured through the door en masse, meetings were booked in our rooms improperly and faculty weren’t happy with us. The dividing wall in our presentation space is broken so being down a room meant we were double booked in some cases. and then a complaint was submitted by who I assume is a student at the school, after they deemed us unfit public servants having witnessed us attempting to navigate the winds. It was so busy that I didn’t have an opportunity to eat lunch until 4pm, and even then it was while I discussed updates with a colleague and my interim boss(not new boss). Sighs.
Honestly, we are extremely short staffed or else I would have been at home clinging to my bed. What a great way to make a fabulous first impression on the guy who decides whether my contract is renewed in April. Ha!
When I arrived home, my driveway had frozen over like a skating rink. and I had a blowout argument with a friend over text. She’s on vacation out of country or else I’d have called to sort it out. She’s a colleague who I’ll see on a daily basis in a few weeks.
Ugh. Ok. I’m done.
This tea? I needed something cleansing and healthy. and caffeine free. On my way home from work. Just what I needed to keep my company during the train ride.
In terms of a rating, I really have no opinion on it. It tasted rather herbaceous with a nice punch of licorice. A mild background of mint, which I had hoped would be stronger. It could be that this sickness of mine muted things. The cinnamon was there as well, neither good nor bad in that moment. Some honey was added as well. I figured this hack cough of mine needed some.
I’m not in a rush to run out and buy this one based on taste. If I knew that the probiotics contained within were of a useful variety, then perhaps I’d be more excited.
It’s ok. I’m glad to have tried a cup and that it was there for me in my hour of need!
