drank Throat Tender by Tealuxe
53 tasting notes

I still have that cold/virus/bronchitis thing that’s hit the nation, and for the past week I’ve been coughing like crazy. I had ordered TeaLuxe’s Throat Tender the week before, thinking I wouldn’t need it by the time it arrived, but here I am, still hacking away. I brewed a cup of this spicy, flavorful tea tonight in the hope that my tender throat would feel better.

Honestly, I’m not sure what I expected. I was curious about the ingredients- especially the slippery elm, which I thought it would make the tea velvety. I think Dragonwell green tea is more velvety than this. I had to add sweetener because the flavor was strong and a bit too bitter for me. With the sweetener it was palatable and, like chai, comforting in the way it warmed me up.

The tea is very pretty, as you can see in the photo, and the liquid is an attractive reddish-amber. I’m not sure this will help my throat, but taking this “cure” isn’t a chore by any means.
