almost time for tea

spent some time at work on this unusually chilly saturday and, after a few hours, felt the need for a cup of tea to warm myself. i checked the stash i keep in my drawer and found the tea bags and the packets of sweetener - but, alas, i was out of powdered creamer. off to the staff room i went, confident i'd find some there that i could borrow and replace on monday. but look, all i found was this gigantic bag of every kind of packaged sweetener you can imagine. but what good is that with no creamer, i ask you?

I wonder how you felt then. I know how we like something when we want it. A good cup of tea is refreshing and relaxing and helps to get rid of fatigue, you know.

ah, i'd forgotten how to use those "sachets", been out of work for a couple of years now, but I felt a little panic, I know how it feels, glad to be out of that now.

You should keep a small supply of herbal tes then you won't need all the trimmings ;)

Well, I'm a bit surprised that you take powdered cremaer in your cup of tea! It's almost sacrilege. I hope you had your tea without it.

madamebutterfly: i do like herbal teas - but on such a dreary, cold day, i was also looking for the caffeine jolt you just can't get with herbals. Nora: i did have my tea without it, and, although it warmed me up, it didn't taste very good. i'm not a big user of powdered creamer and only use it when the real liquid thing is unavailable - like at work.

Hmmm I know exactly how you feel. Many times in my own home I go for the Chai to make a late and guess what.....no soy left....what is a chai without the soy????

I drink mine black so all I'd need is a teabag! Sorry you couldn't find any creamer!
