Last week was absolutely crazy, and words cannot express how glad I am that this coming week looks a lot emptier. I’m the kind of person who likes to have, at most, one social event all week. Some people like to fill their week chock full with social events, but I’m the complete opposite — I like to keep my week (including my weekends) as empty as possible. I’m an introvert; that’s just how I am.
When you have a crazy week, you need go-to tea — a tea that’s good for every occasion, but particularly so when you just have too much going on in your life to choose which fancy tea to drink, let alone appreciate its subtleties.
My go-to tea is Dong Suh Brown Rice Green Tea. It’s a Korean brand, and the only reason I discovered it was because D discovered it from his brother, who discovered it from his girlfriend.
It brews to a light yellow colour and has the nuttiness of roasted brown rice. It’s flavour is so mild and inoffensive that it’s good to drink all the time — yes, even just before I go to sleep! It’s amazing for busy people who can’t be bothered keeping track of how many minutes the tea bag has been steeping — the green tea doesn’t cause the tea to go bitter even if you leave the tea bag sitting in there the entire time you’re drinking it.
This box of Dong Suh Brown Rice Green Tea contained 50 tea bags. It was packed in Korea and purchased in Sydney, Australia in 2014.
