When the Travelling Teabox was staying with me I grabbed a bunch of the miscellaneous teabags that looked interesting and this was one of them.

I’m working my way through a bit of a cold and while research on echinacea real effectiveness as a medicine has had mixed results, I figure it couldn’t hurt. I forgot to time the steeping so I have no idea how long I steeped it for exact that it was quite awhile. Still, it didn’t make the tisane bitter or medicine-y. It’s an interesting mix of mint, lemon and something generically herbal that work out to be quite pleasent.

For what it’s worth, we’re pretty big on herbal medicinals at our house … my (uneducated, un-medical) tip is to be a little hypochondriac and start popping the echinacea at the first sign of a hint of a tickle of the cruds. If you wait till you’ve got a full blown cold, the echinacea won’t do much good.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
