Remember that herbal tea blend I talked about a couple of blog posts back that I didn't think did anything? Well, I was wrong. I'm not sure why this time was different; perhaps I didn't steep it long enough last time. However, this time, I steeped it quite well and then drank it ... well, most of it. I discovered that the reason it made me not want to eat was because it made me slightly nauseous. I went back to study all the herbs I had in it and I think I had one too many "bitters" and diuretics and the blend was too much. Also, the taste was certainly not something I was going to drink every day - not willingly. So now that it's down a couple of tablespoons, I added in a teaspoon of cinnamon bark flakes and 2 teaspoons of Chamomile flowers. I figure this will help water it down and add some flavor and digestive soothers.
One advantage of working in hospice is that I get to play with all the therapy dogs. This is Asher, a Corgi.
