Goofed up with my first cup of this on Sunday night. I accidently let it steep for about 20 minutes. The result was something like lukewarm Dimetap or perhaps the purple Triaminic. However, it did ease the mild nausea I had. I haven’t been able to bring myself to try another cup. I think I’ll wait until nausea sets in again.
I really cannot bring myself to drink this. My friend gave me an entire box of this tea a while ago. The blend smells delicious both wet and dry, and the murky orangey cup it creates smells like liquid gingerbread. But the taste just isn’t there! This doesn’t really taste like gingerbread; just a muddle of spices without any real direction. Surprisingly enough, even when I steep this for a long time, it still has a watery taste. Not a favorite at all.
Do NOT add sugar to this. It makes it taste ridiculously awful. I couldn’t even down most of my cup today as a result.
Yesterday and today I’ve had a weird annoyance in the back of my throat…triggering a gag reflex. VERY strange. I can’t properly explain it actually. It’s scary because DH has been dealing with a sinus issue since April and it’s sort of what he has described…HOPE that isn’t it.
This tea has always helped my throat for soothing or for clearing – I hope this helps this unexplained issue as well.
The reason I have always rated this one so high is because of that reason and I like the minty taste but also because it’s a bagged tea I go back to time and time again for various reasons. This is the highest rated bagged tea I have ever rated.
ONE…I found 4 boxes of this today and bought all 4 in a flash!!! If anyone wants me to mail them a sample or two…respond with your email addy and I will drop you an email for arrangements.
TWO…I found a nifty Tea Bag Holder Template online this morning and have been making tea bag holders for my cheaper bagged teas for tea swaps! YAY!
Okay…so…I’ve reviewed this tea many times and it’s still a winner. It’s like Tea Crack! (just kidding)
