Yea I really wanted this one! OK I’m sure it has something to do with my interest in Buddhism so that is kind of pretentious but oh well. :)

I feel a sore throat coming on which sucks because I really don’t want to get sick. I’m enjoying this blend a lot though, thinking the eucalyptus might be good for a sore throat. The smoky gunpowder has some nice pine notes and I feel like I should be out in the woods hanging with the druids or something. A nice blend! I might have oversteeped this a bit but I think it’s still good.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 45 sec

I wonder if some Greek Mountain Tea might soothe your throat a bit?

TeaBrat

Dunno – can you get it at Whole foods?

Scott B

I don’t know. No Whole Foods around here. I would think you could find it in SF, but I’m sure you don’t want to spend a lot of time looking for it if you’re not feeling well.

It’s kind of a generic cure-all for colds and such in Greece. I don’t know if it specifically works on sore throats.

TeaBrat

yeah, I’ll probably just go home and crash out early, I know I have not been sleeping well lately

Profile

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
