I heard that as "one of the sisters used to put rum in her tea."
(Still ambiguous about whether Annie was a nun.)  Let's go home and
check our tapes and meet back here tomorrow.

I'm inclined to think she wasn't a nun (nor even, necessarily, a
neophyte).  Convents and monasteries don't like to accept people who
are trying to solve their problems by running away from the world
(they prefer people who are "truly" seeking God, whatever that means).
Annie fits this category since she entered the convent after "failing"
and attempting suicide.
