The MRI is back open and today was the first official scan for our lab in over a year, so I was in the hospital all day as the person responsible for doing the scan, and it was a lot. I knew this was coming, so everything started strong, but gradually, one thing after another went awry and I spent the day in a state of overwhelm.

I managed to get one cup of this tea in before I headed in to work and thank goodness for that. I’ve been racing through this tea – dare I say it’s a new favourite? It’s so tasty and just hits the spot every time. I finally just got home a few minutes ago and feel ready to collapse, so I made a fresh cup of this to enjoy while I attempt to zone out!

It even resteeps well!

That sounds overwhelming! I’m glad you were able to take some time with your tea. :)

Oh goodness! I think we are all like this as we are going from quiet to ACTION in work in the aftermath of the pandemic. (I work at front desk of hotel and last few months we’ve picked up a little bit and it’s a shock to the system for sure).. thankful you got a cuppa before you went in for your shift. :)

Bio

My partner and I live with our bunnies: Callie and Ben, and cats: Freyja and Ivan. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens.

Likes:
Raspberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
