Currently fighting sleep so that I can keep an eye on this severe weather we’re having. I’m still (somewhat) awake only because I have lots of tea and snacks. I’m currently craving the following: a bologna sandwich, barbecue kettle chips (with onion dip, please), and pepperoni pizza rolls. I’ll probably eat them all at once and either a) be sick later or b) fall asleep due to the carb surplus and spill tea on my lap. Must not fall asleep.
So I’d either forgotten that this tea had rooibos or I never knew? I guess I must have known at some point because I’m the last one to update the tea page here. How curious. Anyway, I was definitely not expecting the rooibos when I made my cup tonight. I noticed it because the leaves (are they leaves or stems?) immediately floated to the top of my cup once the water hit. Not sure how I missed this. I usually give the bags a good shake, but perhaps it always settled before. I’m getting to the bottom of the bag with this one. I do primarily taste and smell the rooibos here as well, it’s crowding out the other flavors, but whether that’s because I just realized it’s there or because there’s more rooibos in this cup than usual I don’t really know. This cup isn’t as good as my last one, so maybe it does have something to do with the ratio of rooibos to black tea. I do like rooibos but it’s not really what I was wanting.
Back to the weather watching – we had 75-80° temps during the day, storms tonight, and possible snow tomorrow. Anyone else having wacky weather lately? Side note – I saw hummus while I was making my sandwich so I’ve put that on my list. I still have another hour or two to go. Hopefully the storms will have passed by then and I can SLEEP.
