drank Lemon Spice by Rishi Tea

Oh Medicine Tea, I am so happy I have you in my tea cabinet today! This one is good for two infusions, so I made a big double pot, which I can then make fresh water for and have again. It is SO soothing on the throat, warming, and after only half a cup I’m breathing better. So much nicer than taking cold medicine which makes me feel jangly and dry.

And unless you’re into Vapo-Rub, cold medicine doesn’t have nice fragrant steam to breathe.

Very true! That reminds me – I should take an extremely steamy bath tonight before getting the Nyquil Knockout! The one medicine I do allow myself is Nyquil to sleep – sweet oblivion!

Jaime

Oh, how I wish Nyquil could knock me out!

Why does Rishi’s herbal tea tastes like medicine!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
