I felt awful at work. I was fine at home but some time after 10 a.m. my body started to ache. My head was all congested, my nose was running and I almost coughed up my lungs. Okay maybe I’m exaggerating a bit but you get the point.
I knew I was coming down with something.
When I’m sick I have cravings. Is that just me or can anyone else relate? All I could think of was these four things throughout my sick-ridden day at work.
I want my mom.
I want a hot cup of tea.
I want a big bowl of lemony chicken noodle soup.
I want to curl up on my couch with a good inspirational book.
I’m an adult now living far away from my parents so my mom is not around but a big bowl of lemony chicken noodle soup, a good book and a soothing hot cup of tea will do the trick.
But not just any tea will satisfy my sick-ridden cravings. I want my Bigelow mint tea or chai tea served with 1 tablespoon of milk.
There’s something comforting about swirling the creamy white into my dark cup of tea as the steam rises and evaporates into the cold air.
I recently discovered the Bigelow Vanilla Chai and it’s definitely a must try. I’m not really a black tea drinker but I love all the spices in Chai and I especially enjoy it on a cold winter day.
