My second tea for soothing the sore throat. I actually did about half this tea, and half spearmint. Chamomile and mint is my absolute trump tea for when I’m sick, but I didn’t have any plain chamomile so I went with this.
It was extremely smooth and soothing on my throat, but one thing that I think I’m learning is that chamomile just isn’t my favorite tea flavor. It helps my throat, but I basically only drink it when I need it.
I’ve had this for quite a while, but just haven’t been bothering with matcha at all. Um, how long does matcha stay good?
So I don’t actually know exactly how lattes are made, but I did my best this morning. I combined 3/4 hot milk with 1/4 boiling water and 1.5 tsp of this matcha, and then used my little frother device to get it all mixed up. That’s probably completely wrong, but hey it tasted good and isn’t that what truly matters?
So this definitely has a sweetness, that with the milk is almost too much for me, but I don’t like my drinks to be overly sweet. There is also a bit of a buttery flavor that makes me think of popcorn. This isn’t bad, but isn’t my favorite. However, I don’t know enough about matcha to really say much about the quality

My morning tea for today. This one just feels cozy to me. The orange spice makes me think of winter, Alaska, and being with people I care about. I know that’s a very personal interpretation and probably not very helpful, but oh well! I’ve had a slight cold for about a week now, and the weather is getting colder, so this is the perfect warm-me-up and make-me-feel-better tea
I absolutely love how this looks. I’m a sucker for interesting packaging! My boyfriend’s mom sent this to me.
Brewed hot, as I did last night, this is mostly mint. The rose petals are pretty, but there really isn’t rose flavor. The mint isn’t an overwhelmingly strong mint, but it IS the only flavor.
I’ve also cold brewed this in the past, and that made the mint stronger but still no rose.
I think this would be nice to mix into other blends for mintiness without it being overwhelming, but it’s nothing special on it’s on in my opinion.
This is my “sipping at work” tea. I think I’m getting a cold, so I’m going all out on the warm drinks for my sore throat. With this one, I’m really only getting the white tea base, not much of the rose, lemon, or vanilla. However, I do get a hint of flavor that kinda makes me think of a Fig Newton. I’m not sure why or what that flavor comes from, but that’s what I taste
I have been downing this one pretty much every day before work. I still say that it is too harsh for me without milk, but with milk it is perfect for the mornings. It provides enough of a flavor and caffeine kick to wake me up, and the milky tea just goes perfectly with pretty much anything that I’m having for breakfast
