drank Flu Fighter by Carytown Teas
4405 tasting notes

My husband has the flu. I don’t want to get the flu. So I am hoping this will help me avoid it. (I don’t do flu shots… I avoid shots whenever possible)

This has a much lighter flavor and texture to it than I expected with the hibiscus in it. I think that next time I brew this, I can actually try to go longer than 5 minutes (which is my usual steep time for anything with hibiscus in it). It has a nice lemony flavor in the background, and a berry flavor up front. It doesn’t taste medicinal. It tastes herbal-y, but not medicinal.

Not bad at all… this is certainly better than a flu shot.


Here’s hoping you don’t get it! I never get the shot either.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.


I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.


Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
