For the last 8 days I’ve been battling a terrible enemy. Ok…maybe I’m a big baby. I don’t take sickness well because I am never sick so I don’t know how to deal. However, being forced to sound like an octogenarian chain smoker AND a receptionist is kind of frustrating. I had to learn to deal. I know, you guys, my life is rough.
My dealings have mainly surrounded this baby beaut.
Yeah, little tiny teapot. Oh, how I love it. That’s two cups of piping hot tea to smooth out the gravel sound coming from my mouth. As you can see there is a little strainer that sits in the water to steep the tea, and I also add a lemon wedge to it. Pour it over some honey and it really does the trick. I almost sound normal.
Knock off Dayquil and cough drops (thank the world for cough drops) have really tamped out the rest of the symptoms. I do know that I couldn’t have have made it to work without my delicious, reviving tea.
Do you have a customary hot beverage that heals you (body or soul)?

Yes! Chocolate chai tea! And not the fake Starbucks latte rubbish. Basically a mix of raw spices that I brew in a similar teapot. If I’m feeling particularly luxurious, I may pour it into a half cup of hot frothed milk.
My other favourite hot beverage is Milo. It’s a wonderful malty chocolate deliciousness that beats Horlicks, Ovaltine and Hot Chocolate hands down.
That sounds delicious!
