I have a HUGE headache today so I’m drinking this in a blend of 2 parts Ginseng Green (2.25g) to one part each (1.13g) dried lemon verbena and ginger root.

I’ve heard that tea is supposed to be able to help with headaches because the caffeine dilates the blood vessels in the brain, increasing the blood flow. :)

Sorry for your headache. I grow lemon verbena in my herb garden. It smells so good!

Cofftea

Angrboda, that is true but tea helps more than coffee or any other caffinated beverage because of the L-Theanine. Ginger also helps.

Angrboda

I’ve never noticed it working for me, but then again when my head hurts, I’m not really paying attention either. Then I’m just looking for comfort. :p

I’ve never heard of ginger helping headaches; I’m more familiar with using peppermint. Hope you feel better!

Made this for my mom this morning who works full plus part time and goes to school full time. 2.25g per 6oz purified water heated to 175 degrees F.

First of all, these are the infusion parameters I used this time:
4 balls, 2 cups boiling (212 degrees F) water, 5 minutes, first steep.

It was quite good. Not amazing, but good.

Quite smooth for a black tea. Everything seemed to blend well together (or I couldn’t distinguish any particular flavor, anyways). Not much in the way of bitterness either.

I didn’t really allow my cup to cool much while drinking, so I can’t say how it did as it cooled. Last time I had this with 3 balls/2 cups, I didn’t like it as it cooled down then (it was ok warm).

Will continue tweaking with parameters values as I use up my sample, but this time around it turned out quite good.

Finally drank this last night – got in my Steepster Select Adiago Fall tea set a few weeks ago! I have never seen a pearl tea before so I was really excited to try this out! I enjoyed the tea. It was light and subtle. But, I think something up went wrong in prep, either not enough pearls or water wasn’t hot enough. Still enjoyable and will certainly try again.

Cofftea

try 10 pearls per 16oz at 212 degrees F for 5 min.

Jason

@cofftea: Wow, really? I think I used 3 pearls for about 12oz at around boiling for 5 mins. Maybe I’ll try more tea next time. But I have been trying to use less because I feel I usually pile on too much.

Megan

Thanks for the advice, Cofftea. I will add more pearls next time and let you know how it turns out! Jason, made the same mistake, only used 4 for about 12 oz! Could be why it was so light!

Good, at least for a flavored tea. And it’s very inexpensive, so it’s a great everyday green.

Giving this ever so slightly a bump. Very pleasant on first steep, somehow got bitter on the second, with the same steeping parameters. Interesting…

Hmm, didn’t seem as flavorful this time. Still didn’t pull a raspberry piece out of my tiny sample tin, though.

Delicious, delicate flavor. More vanilla than raspberry, though, perhaps because I didn’t get any raspberry bits in the teapot. Hard to get a balanced scoop out of a little sample tin.

Steeped 4 minutes at 180°F. Prepared in Adagio IngenuiTEA teapot.

I brewed this without remembering what the blended components were, and I paid dearly for it. The aroma was extremely coconut heavy, and I am not a fan of coconut at ALL. It practically made me nauseous. I was able to fight through it to take a few sips, though, and amazingly, there isn’t that much coconut in the palate.

Steeped 3 minutes at 180°F. Prepared in Adagio IngenuiTEA teapot.

Valentines alone is too tart or something for me – I’m not a big fan. But I always like it with cream to mellow it out, so I like this. However, I brewed this a bit too strong so it is not as calming as I had hoped, since I’m freaking out about my kitty possibly having a UTI and also a little caffeine-jittery… I’ll know at 3:30 about kitty-girl and hopefully I won’t feel so over-caffeinated by then.

Oversteeped it. :( A little too bitter, so the strawberry/chocolate flavors aren’t as prominent.

I am secure enough in my manhood to say that I love this tea. It seriously tastes like a chocolate-covered strawberry, but the balance of the flavor is just right so that it doesn’t overpower the tea. A good one when you need a treat, either at the start of a work week or the end of a tough day.

Very light green tea with a sweet flavor that reminds me of honey. Not at all grassy like some green teas can be but not as flavorful as I would’ve liked.
