So a Covid update: the sister was very lucky with mild symptoms BUT ALSO we were very lucky that she had symptoms enough to know that it might be Covid and to know to get tested to not pass it on to anyone else. If she hardly had symptoms, things could have been very different for everyone. Otherwise, it looks like we were extremely lucky and none of us got it (it has been over three weeks.) But one odd thing was that the health department was telling her it was fine to stop her quarantine very shortly after she was tested, when I thought the general rule was to quarantine for two weeks? Maybe the health dept should be telling people to quarantine longer because this dang virus is just getting worse? (She was quarantining well after the health dept told her to anyway.) Just a bit of family luck that I will be grateful for in this dreadful year.
I bought this a while ago. In theory, the name of this tea means I should love it. I’ve tried it a few times but this dang licorice just ruins the entire blend. why oh why would there be licorice in banana custard? Honestly, it makes it taste like a tire. With hints of banana, but only occasionally. Also, there are cocoa shells but I can’t really tell they’re present either. I can hardly even taste that this is green tea. It really just seems like a cup of nasty licorice. Even the scent of the dry blend is just bad. It’s definitely not creamy or custard. I would really love an actual banana custard tea. Also, this is sadly SOMEHOW the ONLY “banana custard” tea that pops up in a Steepster search.
