drank Throat Comfort by Yogi Tea
2399 tasting notes

Took a walk down to the farmer’s market today, maybe getting loaded up on fruits and vegetables will be good for my immune system??

Anyway I decided I was going to pick this up on the way home and drink some today. Here’s the ingredients list:
Licorice Root
Fennel Seed
Wild Cherry Bark
Cinnamon Bark
Orange Peel
Slippery Elm Bark
Cardamom Seed
Ginger Root
Mullein Leaf
Clove Bud
Black Pepper

This is like a cornucopia of spices, but not exactly pleasant tasting. It seems like a spicy licorice soup if you ask me. Aside from the licorice there’s also black pepper and ginger that seem really strong. It’s a bit like a chai but not nearly as palatable. I would not recommend this solely on the basis of the flavor, but it is a medicinal tea after all. Hopefully it will do the trick and help dispel my germs. I used two teabags for a large mug of tea.

My goodness, if that list of ingredients doesn’t make you feel better, I don’t know what will!
Feel better :-)

If it wasn’t for that nasty licorice :) Unfortunately, I think that’s the key throat-soothing ingredient.

I don’t hate licorice as much as other people seem to. It does always overwhelm everything else in a tea though.

I hate everything licorice-like, so that includes fennel and anise as well. Some types of cinnamon too.

But yeah, it’s a key factor in the sore throat stuff.

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
