The not-so-good side of tea

I had a little mishap yesterday. I was making a pot of Upton's Christmas Blend when my hand jerked and I ended up spilling a teapot full of hot water over my right hand.
On the bright side, I now know ointment really does soothe a minor burn. The bad side is that I have two really tingly fingers that I use the most on the hand I use the most.
And a new-found appreciation for the dangers of boiling water.
I'll be using the Keurig a lot over the next few days!


  1. Oh no! Hope it's better now... that must have hurt lots!

  2. Yup! My fingertips are pink but it doesn't hurt anymore. I've just been kicking myself for being so clumsy - if I hadn't filled the pot up so much, it wouldn't have happened. Yet another advantage of the Keurig - the water never gets that hot!
