the funny thing about pods
« on: December 04, 2012, 11:46:52 AM »
The funny thing about poppy pods is the atrocious stench. Everyone warned me to encapsulate them or add honey et cetera to the tea. However, I added salt and a bullion cube, and it tastes really good. That's the funny thing about pods. Nobody thought to mistake salt for sugar, thereby evading the endless suffering
If you can put your five fingers through it, it is a gate, if not a door. Shut your eyes and see.

Adding a pinch or two of coffee (not too much, since you have to steep it) to the powdered poppy stuff before brewing it makes it taste just like coffee (I preferred hazelnut), and you don't even taste or smell the pods at all.  I would often use decaf, too, because I don't like caffeine much..
