Something I love to dabble in from time to time is loose teas.
I find some good ones in bulk here and there, and that's always a fun thing.
I've found one that is especially complex at my local Whole Foods, and I just can't get enough of it.
Cinnamon cardamon tea.
There's a lot going on there. And it looks like there's more than cinnamon and cardamon there.
It's $30 a pound, but I imagine a pound is a lot. It's lightweight, and the amount in the jar comes up to about 8$. (Yes, I went back and bought it ALL after sampling a couple of teaspoons of it my first time buying it).
I like to steep 3 teaspoons at a time.
And I don't steep for the recommended typical 5 minutes for most teas. I steep for 30 minutes.
Because I'm hardcore like that.
And then I pour it over ice. (Because you know I'm not drinking it straight).
I can feel it burning in my chest. It's like I boiled some of the red hot candies for a LONG time.
It's akin to drinking some straight liquor.
And what's more amazing is that the two main components of this tea have some great anti-inflammatory and circulatory properties, and I can feel it.
How great is that.
But I can't get past the burn.
And you know what? I hate red hot candies...
...But this here will do just fine.
It Ain't Over - Earlier this month I was sick. I never get sick. I realize I need to stop saying that because inevitably it happens. It turned out to be a sinus infect...
