1 TB for 450 mL, 100C water, 6-minute steep.

I like medicinal herbal teas. I like the idea of sipping on a hot drink that might help me feel better. So I’m always open to them.

This blend sounds enticing. Who doesn’t want inner peace? And I’ve wanted to try tulsi for a while but could only find it blended with lavender, which I generally don’t care for in a tisane.

This is very soothing. I usually stay away from fennel, anise and licorice, but they aren’t dominating the cup. Neither is the peppermint or the lemongrass. I can just catch the orange peel. A nicely balanced tisane, though I wish the licorice was less noticable. Hardly a fair comment to make, as I don’t care for licorce. Not a tisane I’ll turn to for pleasure, I expect, but for the effects. I definitely feel more mellow after drinking it.

Writer and tea fiend. Author of DELUDED YOUR SAILORS, SKY WAVES, DOUBLE-BLIND, and THE SHADOW SIDE OF GRACE. New novel this March called THIS MARLOWE.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Floral oolong and complex black teas are my favourites.
