drank Cold 911 (organic) by DAVIDsTEA
1114 tasting notes

Made a cup of this as soon as the shipment came in this AM. What can I say? Even though I live within walking distance of a DAVIDs, I’m so swaped with work right now and had a discount coupon for online only, I decided it was faster/easier to just order online. This was my biggest haul, and one I’d yet to get into my cupboard.

Came at the perfect time, too. I’ve been struggling with sleep, and I find the less sleep I get, the more susceptible I am to an actual cold (instead of this general stomach ick I’ve had for the past few weeks now). I woke up early this morning with what felt like the beginnings of a cold in my sinuses. I’m clear, I feel okay, and yet… it’s like there’s something back there, clogging up the joint.

So, Cold 911 to the rescue. I’d drink my beloved Clari Tea from Whispering Pines, however it seems to be AWOL somewhere in the US still, weeks after shipping. Cold 911 does the trick – I feel like it’s getting stuff moving, or at the very least, culled into shape.

Well hopefully it is successful in stopping anything before it starts.

Oh, I hope whatever it is, it got stopped in its track… :)

Fingers crossed you stay healthy, and the stomach ick disappears too. :/

Profile

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
