drank Green Tea by Ricola

So… We picked this up on sale at Earth Fare, our regional Whole Foods-type store. We thought it might be soothing for sick or rundown days. This morning I woke up after a poor night of sleep and I was sniffle-y and scratchy throated so I thought I’d give a try. I added the recommended two tsp of small pellets to a mug of hot water and it barely had any taste. After some addition of tea pellets, I figured out that it should have said 2 tbsp. Or my taste was quite impaired by the sniffle-y-ness. But still: YUCKO! It was bitter, herb-y, and had an unpleasant aftertaste. I didn’t finish my cup. I might not even try this again. I might just throw it out. I do not recommend it.

White Mepkin Abbey ceramic mug. 2 tbsp. Instant.

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
