This is from the sampler I got a few weeks ago from the Devotea. I’ve enjoyed sampling their teas, especially the black ones.

This one isn’t bad. I’m drinking it hot, with a pinch of sweet, because it’s cold here in St. Louis! It is lemony & bright from the combo of lemon peel & hibiscus. It also contains marshmallow leaves & root. Marshmallow was originally used as a treatment for sore throats. The thick juice & pieces of the root were combined with honey as a healing treat. Modern day ‘Marshmallows’ were inspired by, but have nothing to do with the original, they are merely a cheap knockoff, & of course, there is nothing healthy about them :)

Really pleased to hear that you enjoyed that one. It’s a US-only blend created by Nicole. I believe she has done a great job. As I am allergic to lemons, I will never find out for myself, I can only go on comments and reviews.

sounds tasty!

Allergic to lemons? Does that extend to all citrus Robert?

Robert Godden

Yes, so that includes citrus blends I have personally created, such as Lady Devotea. Blended by nose, and by forcing others to try it.

Oh well…there’s always lemon grass, lemon balm, & lemon verbena! :)

Bio

I’m so excited to have found this community! I’m a self-employed Harpist (acoustic & electric – Originals, Classical, Rock, Jazz, etc) & Singer/Songwriter. My days & nights revolve around teaching at home, playing gigs, gardening,& fixing awesome food to eat. My schedule is different everyday, but I just go with the flow, & I sip a lot of tea!

My love of Tea began with Herbals back in the 70’s. One of my favorites was a licorice blend from House of Hezekiah, an old tea shop in Kansas City. There was also a tea with mint, rose petals, chamomile, etc called Nuclear Casual Tea.
In the 80’s I gave up caffeine, chocolate, alcohol, (& a few illicit substances…), and brewed medicinal blends & tinctures to support 4 pregnancies (all children born at home). In the 90’s my love affair with green teas began when I discovered ‘The Republic of Tea’. Their beautiful teas & packaging inspired my original song, “TeaMind”, from my CD “Zen Breakfast”. If you’d like to hear the song for free, drop by my website.

In general, I drink my teas straight, but occasionally I add a pinch of Stevia & maybe some coconut or almond milk (I’m allergic to dairy, gluten, & various other things & avoid most sweets.)

I’ve explored a variety of teas:
Whites tend to be a little bland…sorry
Oolongs – wonderfully sensual
Roobios – I’m not a fan in general
Puehr – a fairly new direction for me
I’m not a huge fan of flavored teas, but I do make exceptions, & I’ll try just about anything once.

And Black Tea, Oh how I love thee!!
I am on a quest for the most wonderful breakfast cup! I will find you, my Love!
