My point is, when I saw this verveine tea I was pretty impressed! These Dutch people are on guard against their vampires! (Perhaps they thought I was one, which explains the stock of tea in their cupboard. Interestingly enough they invited me in warmly enough.) So I tried some while I was there, and brought one back to have in the UK. It's a nice, end-of-day tea. I've done all my packing and am completely exhausted from it, no idea why, so I'm sitting down with a cup of verveine and trying to figure out the flavour. It's got a pepperminty kind of taste, a hint of it, and some sort of light flower. It reminds me also of chamomile. It's caffeine free, which is nice, especially as I'm quite worn out, and definitely tastes best on its own without milk. It looks like a dark chamomile in colour, a light brown almost.
My walk/run was really good this morning - again an example in just pressing on, going forward, running when I can and walking when I can't. It's such a great feeling to be slowly, even oh so slowly, running a bit more each day. I'm a lot more tired at nights, but that's great because I sleep better and get up earlier! So, I'm off to finish the rest of my tea, and then bed.
At least I'm protected while I sleep.
Walk/run length: 30 minutes
(P.S. None of these photos are mine today. Had to borrow them as I have no vampire diaries cast, verveine flowers, or dutch teaboxes to hand.)
