finished off my travelers tin (come on cupboard i need some space!) with a 7 minute 6 ounce steep, i feel this needs a long steep and sweetener, it smells peachy, and tastes like fruity roobois per my last note, but although pleasant i think i have other favorite reds I’d rather stock.

Preparation

Would say that it had an effect on you in regards to medicinal qualities?

AmazonV

they said you need to have 2-3 cups a day, for days in a row, which i didn’t (the sampler then would have been gone in one day) so i can’t it did – but i also didn’t follow directions. Based off having their other “get” series I would say it’s more aromatherapy than anything else (it smells summery adn happy)

Jillian

Good point, also I think they had to use extremely low does of a lot of the herbs to avoid getting into trouble with the FDA. Some of those herbs can be nasty is you overdose or if it interacts with certain medications.

AmazonV

Very good point, then again I’ve tried all sorts of OTC herbal pills as well (primrose oil? etc) for various things and I didn’t notice a difference, but i think for a lot of things you might need to be taking a more scientific approach to see anything – small changes and changes to you are harder to spot. so for now, vitamins and comforting tea will do, maybe a sun lamp too?

I usually just stock up on Vitamin C & D supplements and pray for spring – at least the weather seems to be obliging this year! :D

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).

~~~~~~~~*~
0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
