Trolling for Tea
I've recently developed an addiction. I've become addicted to this minty chocolate tea. It's an herbal tea. I am not sure how they make something that tastes so good out of plant-type things, but it's delicious and minty and a bit chocolate-y and it makes a nice snack or dessert. It has no calories or sugar in it, so it seems harmless enough. But it's not. Not only does it taste far too nice, everyone else in the world has developed an addiction for it, too.

Therefore, it is almost always sold out.

I have left cheeky comments on the company's Facebook page about their inability to stock this tea and how disappointed I am. I have mocked them and taunted them. That's what addiction will lead to. It can turn you into an internet troll. And still no tea.

So, I have had to improvise. I have discovered that peppermint tea pairs well with almost every other flavor of herbal tea, and especially lemon.

What is a carnivore doing drinking a tincture of stewed plant leaves? Well, it's a way of eating, not a religion. Also, I hope that the bits of plants that disagree with me are the chewy parts and that steeping them in hot water doesn't affect me the same way. So far, so good.

So peppermint tea is a go for now. When the other tea is back in stock, I'll order some under an assumed name.
