Ugh! Last night aaround 10:00 the fire alarm in my building went off. In my PJs, I went to the door to see what wqs happening. The hallway was a little hazy. FIRE!!!
I hustled around trying to catch the cats, but I could not find them. I rushed to get dressed, bundled up, and hurried outside. AS I went I passed police and firemen pounding on doors telling people to evacuate.
Scary. Very scary. I huddled outside with other resdents, including a family with four children recently arrived from Syria. They did not have hats or heavy coats. The temperature was -21F with a windchill of -44. WE all stood out there for a little over 20 minutes before we were allowed back in. The fire was small, isolated to one apartment, started by a space heater too close to the carpet. Nobody hurt.
It took me over an hour to warm up again. I brewed my sample of this tea. It helped. I liked it. Not enough to order 4 ounces, but enough to re-steep. Sometimes rooibos can be very woody tasting. I didn’t get that here. Maybe the honeybush covered it. It was mildly sweet on its own so I did not add any sweetener. I have enough left for another small cup, and I will be glad to have that.
