If you’re from Minneapolis definitely check out the Tea Garden in Uptown. One of my favorite tea joints. My favorite is the lychee or peach green tea with pearls!

I have this sitting in my tea cupboard (and yes, I have a cupboard dedicated to just tea) but I haven’t tried it yet. Not entirely sure how to steep it…any suggestion?

I, too, had this sitting in my cupboard and just broke it out this morning. I made it entirely too strong using 3 needles. Use one and steep at 170 to 195 f degree water. It is very bitter by design. I took those leaves and combined them with my regular tea and it was a nice combination.

Since water brought to a boil in the microwave is not actually up to full boiling temp, nuking it actually brings the water to a proper temp. One needle is enough for one cup. I have frequently enjoyed this tea especially when experiencing chest and head colds and found it to be very beneficial. It does have a very bitter taste but it is followed by a mildly sweet after taste. To me the benefits far outway the taste. I do prefer to drink it without sweetener, you are free to add sugar or honey. Raw unfiltered honey has its own medicinal properties as well so it can’t hurt.

If you have a sore throat or just a little tickle you can’t get rid of, this stuff really does the trick. When you’re sick you just want that warmness of tea, so why not add a little herbal medicine to the mix.

My favorite echinacea tea. I drink it even when I’m not sick because of the taste and to help boost my immune system.

So besides the obvious reasons for me trying out this tea…ahem…I was pleasantly surprised with the taste! I was a little afraid of the cardamom (don’t really enjoy the flavor), but it wasn’t too strong. A little licorice flavored, but over all it was a really nice blend. Great for bedtime!

The only reason I give this a thumbs down is because I have another echinacea tea that I perfer more than this one. Sorry Yogi! I still love you.

…I don’t know if I’ll ever give a tea a thumbs down. This one might be a thumbs sideways though. I like this tea overall, but it was a little too fruity for me personally. There was too much flower and fruit and not enough tea. If you like fruity and soothing mild tea though, I would recommend this.

A smoother, less bitter blend of jasmine and oolong.

It’s green tea in a bag, not my favorite tea in the world, but it will do.
