had this last night as i watched Breaking Bad.
(the second to final episode ever.)
that show is stressful yo!
this tea was tasty enough, but had little effect on how nervous the show made me ;)
it’s herbal tea bitch.
I have had slight sinus and tickly throat irritations for a few days now, and I decided to try this because there was a bag of it in a tea tin that my housemate’s mom gave to us. It tasted wonderful! Lemony and sweet. I could feel it soothing my throat as I drank it, and for a little while after, too. It’s not going to help against strep or anything serious like that, but it can make recovering from a minor cold quite pleasant.
This tea is AMAZING. It tastes wonderful, and I felt a lot better after I drank it. I left the teabag in the water the whole time with no problem, too. Highly recommend this tea to anyone who has a cold or can feel one coming on.
I love this tea, it is my absolute favorite mint.
Big day at work. I barely slept and woke up nauseous. Time for some ginger tea! This didn’t taste especially ginger-y, but it quite did the trick. Got me out the door, at least.
I found this in my locker at work and made it for the last hour of work. Smooth and minty. I liked it though :]
This was not my cuppa! very strong earthy echinacea flavor….and nothing else. I would drink for medicinal purposes only.
I am usually not a huge fan of herbal teas, their medicinal quality and usefulness aside I never drink them for pleasure…because usually they taste kinda gross. This tea was a pleasant surprise!
The taste is very mild and slightly sweet, not at all bitter or medicinal tasting. It had a very floral flavor and the subtle flavors of the tea are brought out with just a touch of honey.
The aroma is that of a summer field, very green and floral, not at all unpleasant.
The best part is it seems to be working, the tea claims to help relax you and help you sleep and I certainly feel relaxed and sleepy. A wonderful before bed tea!
Drinkable when hot, with honey, but really unpalatable as it cools. I took a sip, nearly gagged, and dumped it out. Probably the licorice/anise plus maybe the “slippery elm” (maybe it’s jut power of suggestion, but I swear the tea felt “slippery”) Anyway, I have no idea if the half mug I choked down helped my throat. I doubt it. I will file this one away as definitely “for medicinal use only.” Some herbals I actually enjoy drinking, but this isn’t one of them!
This was the first tea I tried from Traditional Medicinals, and I really enjoyed it. The taste was unusual, but not unpleasant.
Guys…. I have a horrible sore throat.. and I’m not sure if it’s from allergies or not.. I’ve never had them. So I’m drinking a lovely mug of this right now and it’s helping so much. I love the licorice in this herbal. Light lemony notes and a nice sweetness from the touch of honey I added.
I can’t find a page for the plain Smooth Move so I will rate it on this page. The stuff works. It is not a great tasting tea but it is effective. To me it is like drinking black licorice, ergh, but I don’t put anything in it as I want it to work well. :-/ Steeped, with a cover on, for 15 min. then drunk as quickly as possible!
This really mostly tastes of mint and chamomile. I wish the mint was stronger though, it tastes less-than-fresh to me? Maybe I’m just a mint snob!
Not really noticing it making me any more sleepy. In the future I think I’d pass this one up for just plain mint (it’d be cheaper).
I’m really happy with this one! When you’re drinking it, you can taste the peppermint and almost like a chai flavor. After that though, you can feel that chilling sensation on your throat. I love that you don’t have to taste the Menthol while you’re drinking it, only after. I had been a fan of the Breathe Easy by Traditional, but now this one’s my favorite.
A favorite tea for colds so far.
I like how this one has such a sweet aftertaste. When I saw “breathe easy”, I automatically thought bitter, sharp flavors to open up sinuses. But this one did the trick without that, so I was happy about that:) The only thng I wasn’t a fan of was how it eventually tastes sort of bland…even though it is sweet, it’s very light and there’s not much to it than that. Overall though, I’ll enjoy the box I have but probably won’t reorder.
wave Sorry I haven’t been around lately everyone. I do miss it around here. I have a grumpy tummy so I thought this might do the trick. I used to rely on mint teas the most, but I have stopped favoring it lately. This tea smells and tastes mainly of lavender, not chamomile. This one is very soothing and great for nighttime.
This is my new go-to tea for sore throats. I get very bad sore throats sometimes and I’ve tried every remedy from lozenges to cough drops to concoctions known to make sore throats better and this one of the few things that really provides relief. The lemon is great because it has healing properties. Combine that with honey and you’ve got everything you need to get back to feeling good.
This tea is the hub of the performing arts department, namely among vocalists and its easy to see why. It is naturally sweet so there is no need for sweeteners which can irritate sore throats and perpetuate laryngitis. Honey compliments this really well, so if a healthy sweetener is desired, a tsp of honey enhances the flavors and doesn’t overpower it. It’s scent is very herbal and medicine-like but there is a sweet aroma emitted as well. This tea is perfect and is among the most liked in our health conscious, taste connoisseurs, social circle. It’s also a favorite amongst those who generally detest tea. It’s super soothing. Super smooth in taste and with a bit of a slimy texture from the licorice and mallow. To ward off colds and enhance it’s medicinal properties (and add a pleasant spicy taste), I take 1 tsp of freshly fine chopped ginger per 2 cups of water and make a decoction for 20 minutes, simmering the ginger for 15 minutes, then turning off the heat and steeping this tea in the remaining 5 minutes. It warms up the body and induces “feel good” vibes to get one off the bed and ready to sing. This is my favorite packet tea!!
