My throat gets extremely dry after drinking coffee or tea. It helps if milk is added to it but it still gets dry after washing it down with water.
> coffee and tea contain compounds that make your mouth feel dry. The sensation is called astringency, and when it's major, your mouth actually can feel puckered. In wine and strong tea, it's the tannins that can turn your mouth and throat into the Mojave . In coffee, it's the chlorogenic acid, which is beneficial to your health. Your green tea at sufficient strength probably would be just as drying.
Anyone else like this? There's nothing to drink when hanging out with friends since I don't enjoy alcohol.

I bought some of this packaged organic ground beef
It was in the fridge for 3 days, and when I went to open it, it smelt a bit rancid. There was no discoloration, still pink, no grey or green, and it cooked well.
I cooked 1/4 of it all the way through as a patty, cut in half, padded off the grease and had it with tortillas and cheese.
Was it actually bad? Im worrying it smelt, well, dated.
I'm kinda starting to sweat now that I finished but I think thats a mix of being worried and full.
