Okay here’s the tea I make when I’m feeling gross and sick and need comfort. Don’t judge me until you try it.
-it starts innocently enough. You get a bag of earl grey tea. I’ve started using Reichenbach Recovery because yum.
-instead of boiling water though, heat up some milk in a sauce pan to a gentle boil (you don’t want to scald or burn the milk)
-pour the milk into your mug, and let the tea steep. I let it steep longer in milk than in water, generally. Usually a good ten minutes.
-okay this is where you ate probably going to go “cara no why”, because now you add butter.
-shut up for a second
-not much butter. Like a teaspoon. Just stir it on in there, with a little honey too.
-now sprinkle a tiny bit of salt on top
-see, I had read a few years ago, about Tibetan Yak Butter tea, and while I don’t have access to yaks or yak butter, I was intrigued, because I’m of the Paula Deen school of “butter is generally great”
-so I tried adding regular butter to tea
-it took some experimenting to get something that wasn’t terrible
-but I’ve settled on this technique
-it’s pretty darn rich though, so I limit it to when I’m feeling achey or super depressed
-shhhhh don’t judge me.
it feels like a good night for this. Maybe using some of the Kili or Ori tea.
Today I tried another one of my teas from Adagio. I had the lid for my travel mug on and closed, but it somehow spilled all over my lunchbox, and soaked my shirt for gym. Everything smelled and tasted like Crowley.
It figures this would happen with Crowley. Aziraphale would never do this to me.
