I’ve been feeling a little under the weather for about a week now and a friend of mine recommended that I try this tea. I had a cup of cold 911 yesterday and found that it really cleared my sinuses but didn’t do anything to relieve my other symptoms. The woman at the store even said that she finds it helpful for the nausea that comes along with the flu. As far as smell, i found it to be very similar to detox but for the taste, I found it to have much stronger citrus notes. I really liked how the flavours are balanced and are not competing; after all the last thing you want when you are sick is something really strong! It definitely lived up to its promise as a cold remedy but I can’t see myself reaching for it for the taste alone. As I am using my phone and can’t rate, I will just mention here that I am giving this tea an 80 (taking into consideration both, what it is meant for, and the taste).

I like Ginger Pu erh or Super Ginger when I’m sick.

Thanks heather. I haven’t tried either of those yet but will be adding them to my shopping list!

And actually, I really like Coco Lemon Thai for when I am not feeling well too. It is not as strong as the others, but it is comforting, and again, has a bit of ginger.

I am a tea fanatic and have also recently made the transition from vegetarian to vegan! I always have tea in my hand and in my overflowing cupboard!

I prefer black, green and white teas. I have recently discovered mate and oolongs. So far I’ve enjoyed them however, I have not tried very many. I am not often a fan of rooibos as I tend to find them overly woody but have found there to be some exceptions. As for herbals, I am only recently beginning to drink these on a regular basis (mostly iced) as the weather gets warmer, but these I am willing to try. I have not yet developped the taste for pu’erh.

I tend to only rate and review the teas I drink once (maybe twice if my opinion REALLY changes; especially if I were to have them prepared a different way). I currently only use Steepster for logging my reviews of David’s Tea although I do drink teas from many different companies. Every time I visit the store, I try something new in a cup to-go as I enjoy going through the tea menu and marking off teas as I try them. My goal is to try them all!

My rating system is as follows:
90-100: Wecome to my permanent collection! (worthy of a 100g tin!)

75-90: Definetly would drink again but maybe not all the time. I would buy a small amount (50g or less) to have once in a while.

50-75: I will finish the cup but not my favourite.

25-50: I will try to finish the cup but may not be able to.

0-25: Not my cup of tea…down the sink we go!
