I’m going to start this with a story about my day – feel free to skip right ahead to notes on this tea at the bottom if you’d like :)
I spent the majority of last night extremely sick and slept away most of my night on the bathroom floor. This really did not make for a great start to my Monday morning. I barely dragged myself out of the bed I had somehow managed to get into at some point, and I ended up missing my first class. The class with the most terrifying prof with intense information overload each and every class. Delightful. I did make it for my next class, thank goodness. I also had the foresight to bring Bangkok in my Timolino today – favourite tea comfort, and ginger for the upset stomach. Mondays are my longest day, where classes run from 9-7:30p with one 1 hour break. So I endured all but one of my classes today with a horribly upset stomach and running on little sleep. When I did finally arrive back home there was a tea parcel waiting for me, and this just seemed to make it all better – so thank you Cavovorax, and the speedy postal service, for brightening my day.
This was one in the package from Cavovorax. I have tried this one before and it just didn’t quite work out the first time. This time is going much better. I really do love rhubarb – almost as much as my love for watermelon and pumpkin. I don’t consume nearly as much or enough of it since I left home. I really should’ve brought my Mom with me to bake me rhubarb goodies. Why didn’t I have the foresight for that… Okay, back to this tea. I’m much happier this time around with it, and I’m even more thrilled it went into my Butiki order yesterday. I may try the resteep with a touch of sugar like is suggested. Yum!
I’m having the second resteep tonight and it is quite delicious. I’m even more excited about my Butiki order now.
