I really enjoy this tea. For a medicinal tea, this one is quite easy to drink and really does offer relief with water retention. It tastes a bit like a bullion broth to me, with a savory note to it.

Airplane Tea
Not gonna lie; if I wasn’t nursing I wouldn’t be drinking this. Probably would have never looked at it either. It’s a weird mix of things but I think it helps. The spearmint seems to stand out the most w/ a hint of lemon verbena.

Not the best tasting tea. I was hoping the lemon myrtle would dominate but it doesn’t. I think it’s the burdock coming through. Hope it helps with my allergies.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

This tea is a godsend during pregnancy. I usually drink this with a dash of ginger, and sometimes a pinch of Xylitol. It’s a very mild tea, somewhat minty, herbaceous, and with just a touch of underlying citrusy tartness. That description makes it sound much like the Lemon Verbena I recently reviewed, but here those flavors blend soothingly rather than clash. It’s not a tea I would choose purely for its taste, but since I could drink it when I had morning sickness bad enough that plain water turned my stomach, I give it a high score for fulfilling it’s intended purpose

Flavors: Citrus, Herbaceous, Mint

Boiling 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I have big news….I’m pregnant!!!!!!!!

Finally after six months of trying, we’re expecting a baby! I know lots of people struggle for longer than that, but those six months felt like a lifetime. We’re so excited!!

I apologize for my hiatus. I’ve been super paranoid about drinking tea. I’ve avoided caffeine 100% for the first 9 weeks and have only recently felt okay about having it in very limited quantities. But even besides the caffeine, tea is very difficult to drink while pregnant. There are very few kinds I can safely consume. Green tea is out because it can inhibit folic acid absorption. I can’t have a shocking number of the most common herbal ingredients, including hibiscus/rose hips, chamomile, lemongrass, licorice root, and chicory root. I don’t like honeybush or red rooibos, which are by far the safest teas. So what does that leave me with? Not much, my friends. I’m exploring some green rooibos blends (and I’ll take any recommendations!), but so far I’ve only drank 52teas’ Ginger Ale White Tea with some extra ground ginger thrown in. I haven’t had the worst first trimester, but it hasn’t been entirely without incident. The fatigue is ridiculous but manageable with daily naps. I’ve got the unpredictable all-day-long nausea accompanied by infrequent vomiting. Yuck. Ginger tea is the only thing that can calm my nausea when it’s being particularly bad.

This tea is exactly what I need right now. Pure organic ginger with nothing else added. It’s actually not as overpowering as I expected. It’s delicious and only a tad bit spicy. I’m not usually a fan of spicy things, but the spice here is at a very tolerable level. I can definitely recommend this tea, even to non-pregnant ladies. :)

I think this is my first note for anything that doesn’t have Camellia sinensis in it. I usually don’t go for herbal or medicinal teas, but I was audacious (or groggy) enough to try this while I was sick. The official description on the box literally says “slimy in a good way”. That wasn’t terribly reassuring, but it was accurate, and basically how a demulcent is supposed to work. It’s soothing and doesn’t taste icky, though I can’t say I was really in a state to make a good assessment of the taste. Sweet and…unfamiliar? Woodsy? Anyway, it was pretty not bad and worked fairly well, so I’m happy with that.

Part of the traditional medicinals sampler. This one was ok. I didn’t notice any change in my cold symptoms (although yes I know echinacea doesn’t work that fast, but I have had several colds in the last 3 weeks so I don’t think it worked) I was no super impressed by this sampler, will probably keep looking, if I don’t find something better I may come back to this or I may just take the pills.

My favorite cold/allergy tea is Gypsy Cold Care by Traditional Medicinals. Get Wellness No. 11 by Republic of Tea seems to help prevent a little in preventing the cold. But ya know, sometimes it’s all in my head! :-)

RandomlyFascinated

:) I will have to try that :). I figure if the tea is not awesome then I can just drink another tea that is more awesome and take echinacea pills :)

carol who

You are right! I would probably go with the vitamins/herbs/pill thing, too. I drank it because it was easily available and it was generally soothing to me. Now I would add some of my favored Stevia drops; that makes everything better :-p

Got the traditional medicinal cold sampler box. I drank this a couple days ago. It is pretty good, it has that sneaky sweetness from licorice root. I tried it brewed with a couple different teas to see what I like. I liked it brewed with tazo vanilla rooibos, it was very good. Just FYI not so good premed with tazo passion, drinkable but the flavors do not meld at all. Anyways this is a decent tea, but I didn’t notice any specific throat benefits from it so I prolly won’t buy again, I think I’ll try some different brands.

I’ve used this in the past. Apparently I have been pretty healthy lately because I haven’t had to use it for awhile. I guess all those years teaching and being surrounded by little kids may have given me a bit of immunity. :-D

RandomlyFascinated

I thought I got immunity from teaching but my immune system tanked a few years ago. I have been working on building it up but it is a slow process.

I tried this the other day. I first made it for my husband (who doesn’t like tea, but was willing to try it medicinally) and he said it was gross. Well I didn’t believe him because he thinks all tea is gross so I made a cup for myself later, I think I brewed it with throat coat, and I found it bitter, I know it was this and not the throat coat because I had had that one earlier and it was fine. Did I brew it wrong or something? I don’t know, I followed the brew time directions. Anyways, I probably won’t drink it again unless someone can tell me what I did wrong. Even lemon infused honey couldn’t cut the bitterness.

carol who

I’ve usually had good luck with this one.

RandomlyFascinated

Hmm, how do you brew it?

carol who

I mostly made this before I got into tea very much. So I probably did it – gasp! – 2 min. microwave and 3-4 min. steep. I can’t be completely sure. I sweetened it with honey, that I remember!
