I have had a really gnarly cold for the past week or so, preventing me from consuming tea in the way I normally would. In fact, especially toward the beginning of being sick, drinking tea would aggravate the rawness of my throat if I didn’t use an absurd amount of honey (to the point where I might as well be drinking just hot water with honey and no tea at all). So I have been out of the loop in the meantime!

For the past couple of days, I’ve been able to drink a little tea and (mostly) taste it, but it wasn’t until this morning that, upon making a cup of tea, I could also smell it properly. So exciting!

This Tamayokucha is like a breath of fresh air to me right now. It’s a great tea to start with when being able to drink tea once again. It’s mild (overall) and has a nice flavor. While it’s never going to be one of my favorite teas, just now it’s making a very nice impression on me, immediately following over a week with practically no tea at all.

Still a far cry superior to other bagged teas, this is one I would likely bring along with me on expeditions where carrying loose leaf is just not a good idea!

I’m glad you’re feeling better. I find Japanese green tea is great for kick starting my immune system after I’ve been sick.

I’m glad you’re feeling better too. And I agree with Amy, green tea is great for after I’ve been sick. It’s as though I can feel it working!

I’ve been sick to! honey has been my best friend :)
and I think you’ve inspired me to break out my greens tomorrow…

Thanks! I’m glad I went with the green because it definitely helped! I even made it to yoga again yesterday after work and, at the end of it, I could feel my body going all detox on itself. The only problem is it rushed everything straight to my head and I’ve had a headache from it ever since. Maybe a little more green this morning will help settle that down!

Hope you feel better too, Indigobloom!!

Jennifer

Profile

Bio

I’m your standard nerdy girl in a lot of regards, from my taste in music, books, and movies to my penchant for getting completely wound up in various activities and hobbies. One of my hobbies that never seems to fade away is my joy in writing.

I’ve written a personal blog, a tea blog, and an adventure blog, all of which recently have been brought together to a single location – A Chomp at Life. The Fun and FlirTea section is dedicated to introducing tea to and enticing today’s younger, coffee-drinking generation. It’s a fun place to learn about tea and hopefully start meeting more tea-lovers as well!

More than almost anything else, I enjoy sharing the things I love and helping spread that joy. Now I’m doing this with tea, living life everyday, and adventures – and I couldn’t be more excited!
