drank Six Herb by Market Spice
470 tasting notes

When I have a bad day, I reach for something herbal usually. Not really sure why, since perhaps a cup of rich dessert tea might be classified as more comforting, or even a really nice oolong. However, herbal is what I want when I’m not feeling my best, and I just happened to have one in my samples from LiberTEAS.

I was a bit worried about the hibiscus: I can handle some tart but it’s easy to overwhelm a blend. This is nicely balanced though, tart and a bit sour at the beginning of the sip from the hibiscus & rosehip, then minty and citrusy at the end. I’ve been pleased with the herbal blends I’ve tried from Marketspice so far and this one is no exception, though I think I’d like it a bit heavier on the mint and a tad less hibiscus—but that’s probably because I just really like peppermint.

Thank you. My sweet little kitty passed away today, and I’m trying to get my mind off it for a little bit by organizing teas—my cupboard is a total mess.

Bonnie

Oh no, I’m so sorry!

ashmanra

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear it!

Kittenna

Oh, that’s so awful :( I’m sorry to hear about your cat – I cried for days when mine passed away :(

Alphakitty

Thanks everyone. It was really unexpected since he was relatively young (7 years old). It’s amazing how attached you can get to pets—but at least I know that I gave him the best life possible and he was a very happy kitty.

Hesper June

So sorry to hear that you lost your kitty!
I pray that you find some comfort amongst the teas.

TeaBrat

So sorry… losing a pet is never easy.

Kittenna

That is young :( We were pretty upset when my 12(?) year old cat passed away. The other made it to 16, which was a bit more bearable, but still, it’s always hard.

So sorry you lost your kitty. hugs

Bio

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
