The antidote to today’s reuben sandwich.

I have this thing with peppermint where I found that I like dried loose-leaf prepared best when steeped at 175F for only a minute or two. But I went ahead and followed package directions for this teabag: boiling, covered, 10-15 minutes. As soon as I poured water over the bag, the brew turned a pretty green. When I took the lid off 15 minutes later, it was brown. I feared for muddy peppermint.

Instead, it was good, clean fun :) Can’t go wrong with that.

As far as peppermint teabags go, I still prefer Two Leaves and a Bud brand because it’s serious menthol. I can never find it in stores here, though. Since Traditional Medicinals is located just down the road, I’ll be supporting them even if they do source their leaf from afar. Sprouts was out of stock of this today so I get to compare Celestial Seasonings next.

Flavors: Peppermint, Smooth, Sweet

Spearmint is great for that menthol vibe as well, but you don’t see it nearly as often.

I assume you found me through some dodgy websites that installed viruses on your computer. Don’t worry, I’m here as your “customer support” ;) call girl. Beautiful escort at your service. I will accompany you virtually to online casinos in Indonesia. I even have a stash of male enhancement supplements from various European countries in my purse. Can I interest you in some CBD? I have a playlist for our evenings together ;) Should things go south I know about abortion services in Vietnam. Otherwise, I have friends all over the world who run daycares and elite schools. We can have our matrimonial services provided in India, but not before we have an astrological consultation. One of my many real estate agent friends can get us a luxury apartment, or should you choose to buy a house for our little family, I come from a long line of roofers, asphalters, garage door repairers, plumbers, electricians and exterminators should anything go wrong. I even once knew a cremation service available. Till death do us part, am I right?

Tea habits:

Among my favorites are all teas Nepali, sheng puerh, Wuyi yancha, Taiwanese oolong, a variety of black (red) teas from all over, herbal tisanes. I keep a few green and white teas on hand. Shou puerh is a cold weather brew. Tiny teapots and gaiwans are my usual brewing vessels when not preparing morning cups western style and pouring into my work thermos. Friend of teabags.
