This tea came in my gift set from Palais de Thes – I could not find it on the American site, only on the British one. Is the name too risque for us yanks?

In any case my taste buds are off today so I’m not going to rate this one for now. I started taking MSM which is working wonders for my foot pain but has also given me something of a dry mouth this morning, and I might be getting a cold which isn’t helping either. This is a nice blend of green and black tea along with a very strong fruity element. This one smells great in the tube. I don’t have much experience with green and black blends but so far I am really liking it. The fruit seems good in this blend, it’s refreshing but not tart.

I hope to post a better review if and when I am feeling more normal! :)

Hope you start feeling better soon! When I was taking MSM it was suggested that I take a glucosamine supplement because it helped with the side effects. It helped me a bunch! I think they sell MSM and Glucosamine as a single supplement now. It might be worth a try! : )

Thanks – I will check out the glucosamine as well. :) I can’t believe my doctor didn’t recommend it but MDs in this country only want to give you things you need a prescription for.
