This is my go-to upset stomach tea and wow do I have an upset stomach today. Unfortunately it wasn’t as effective as it usually is, but it did help a bit. I can’t say that I would ever drink this tea for the taste, and it didn’t help that I over-steeped it so it was extra strong today but I kind of had to force myself to drink it. Usually it’s much easier on the taste buds.

I used to drink Grandma’s Tummy Mint and then couldn’t find it any more. I have terrible digestive issues, spend a lot of time in a lot of pain. Tension Tamer saves me on many of those days. I brew it with a bag of just straight chamomile (or Sleepy Time or Sweet Dreams, whatever someone remembered to buy ;→) and it helps a lot. I don’t know why. It’s good for really stressy days too. Good stuff & tastes good too!

Today this turned out a tad strong even for my tastes. Perfect after I drank 1/2 of it and added some more water.

drank Earl Grey by Twinings

Really, there are so many mediocre earl grey blends out there… and this is one of them. I generally like Twinings, but I am definitely not impressed with this tea. Really, it seems like a cardinal sin to make a bad earl grey blend. It’s just that much more disappointing.

drank Orange Pekoe by Benner Tea

I got a bag of (what I’m assuming is) this from the Traveling Tea Box and it’s not bad. It wasn’t marked, so I don’t know for sure if it’s orange pekoe but it’s a black blend. Pretty generic but it does the job… I’m on my second cup of the day so I wasn’t feeling very fancy this go ‘round. I’d say it’s on par with any other basic store-bought black tea blend.

drank Peach Black Tea by Twinings

I always like this more than I’d remembered liking it (if that makes any sense)… I never look forward to drinking it but when I do, it’s actually pretty good. I’m not a big peach fan in general so I think that’s why it normally doesn’t tempt me much. It definitely has a strong peach flavour and scent but it’s not overbearing. It’s a nice change from the other flavoured black teas I tend to drink, and especially good on a cold fall day!

Absolutely makes sense. I’m like that w/some foods.

Profile

Bio

I’m a 41-year-old vegetarian zen witch who is obsessed with tea, music, beer, psychology (and many other things)! I really dislike herbal teas and will mostly only drink black with the occasional green and white mixed in from time to time. I have two huge cabinets full of tea that I will probably never be able to use up—it’s a constant battle to keep myself from buying more! Every time I travel, I come home with a bunch of new teas to try. I don’t post on here as often since I’m really trying to keep my collection in check and haven’t been trying as many new blends as I once did.
