Tea of the Day: Throat Coat by Traditional Medicinals.
Description: We combined slippery elm with licorice root and marshmallow root for an experience like taking your voice to the space because we all need a little comfort sometimes so that we can go back to being our best
Smells like black licorice, with a tiny bit more bite than you’d expect
Liquor is yellow amber in the cup
Steeped tea has a savory smell to it
Needs no sugar, tastes like licorice candy with a savory aftertaste
Tea Rating: 4/5
I really want to take a road trip
Just jump in the car and go.
It’s this weather that does it to me, not too hot, not too cold, but clear and dry
Plus, too early yet for construction season to have really started so not much obstruction in my way, just open roads
I had this same urge early spring last year, as a matter of fact the same week
It also happens to be exactly a year since the last time I saw my grandmother before she passed away
I miss her, and I find it hard to believe that it’s already been so long.
A year ago today, I saw my grandmother well for the first time in many months, so that my last memory of her is a happy one
Today, I am starting a new job, one that I did not think I was going to get but is a really amazing opportunity for me. I’ll admit, it still feels a bit unreal
It feels like things should be radically different, but truthfully that day and this one feel pretty much the same: good, like things are exactly as they should be
Same day, one year apart. So much has changed and yet today feels like an echo of that day
I think maybe that is that way it should be
