So I figured what the hell? Let's see if it helps. We have some here in the office. I'm hankering after a warm drink, which means either this green tea or my stash of vanilla almond tea.
Let's try it out, shall we? After all, what could possibly go wrong?
I proceed to make tea.
I realize I have steeped it twice as long as I should have (I like strong tea, so I steep my black tea for awhile, but green tea gets bitter if it's oversteeped). Oops.
I realize I have no honey, which is my go-to sweetener for green and herbal teas.
I realize the office has no Splenda, only Sweet-N-Low, which I refuse to drink.
I taste and realize it is exceedingly bitter. Sugar it is then. And vanilla creamer, because it can't hurt at this point.
Better make that 2 vanilla creamers. I am grimacing a bit now, and the color resembles snot that is just starting to go greenish, indicating possible infection. Charming.
I set the tea down on my desk and proceed to eat my orange.
I then go ahead and start typing, and when a giant BOOM of thunder startles me, I slam my wrist into my (full) cup and send a wave of tea flying.
Flying into my keyboard, all over my desk, lap and a stack of papers (thank goodness it was greeen tea and therefore shouldn't stain).
I am awesome.
I let it get tepid and then drank it as quickly as possible.
I'm thinking this may be a sign from God that drinking green tea during this cycle isn't the bestest of ideas ever.
