I have been sick for the past week with tonsillitis, again…. 8th time in 2 years. I hate it. So this tea was a life saver and has been my rock. What I love about this tea is that it isn’t just peppermint. Its a mixture of so many soothing elements…its a must have if you are a peppermint tea lover or just to keep on hand when you are sick. Peppermint Herbal gets two thumbs up from this girl:)

Tonsilitis sucks!!! Feel better soon!

As someone who used to get strep and tonsillitis more than I care to admit, surgery seriously changed my life. It’s a pain in the neck and you’re out of commission for awhile, but it stopped the majority of the infections.

thank you Scribbles! and Jeweledthumb… i have been wanting to get them removed but people keep telling me it is a painful procedure and takes forever to recover. I have a high tolerance for pain, but i am still nervous. How long was the procedure and recovery if you do not mind me asking.

To be honest, I don’t remember how long the procedure was, but I received general anesthesia. My (full) recovery was 4 weeks. I won’t lie, it was extremely painful and I could barely even drink due to the pain, BUT even with the pain, it did eventually go away (and they give you pain meds) and it sure beats getting throat infections so often! I scheduled the surgery during the summer. If you do have it, make sure you have someone take care of you for at least the week after surgery. Best of luck whatever you decide. =)

Thank you so much!

I had my tonsils removed when I was 17 and it made a world of difference. Now I rarely even get a sore throat. Recovery time for me was about two weeks, but the older you are the longer it takes to recover. If it is something you are considering I wouldn’t put it off, the recovery time is a minor inconvenience when you think about how much better you will feel in the long run.

Bio

Hi! I am a 20 year-old from Salinas, California. I attended school in Monterey and played softball for my JC. I recently moved to San Luis Obispo, CA where I got a job as a full time baker and I LOVE my job! I have always loved to bake and cook since I was young and actually started my own cupcake business in highschool to help pay for my senior year as well as pay my way through college. Once I moved my cupcake business was put on hold, but I still love what I’m doing now. I love to work with children and hope to transfer soon to a college for child development or family psychology. I would also love to go to culinary school! I have a lot of things I want to do and am determined to do them! I am a huge tea enthusiast. I love to read about tea. Learn about tea. Make tea. Drink tea. Taste new flavors.

I am also very big on reading and always enjoy a good read. If you ever have any reccomendation never be afraid send it my way!

I am really excited to be a part of this tea community and can’t wait to trade tips, teas, recipes and treats!

PM me with any of the above and I can’t wait to meet you all!
