I’m preparing a Timolino of this as I type. I came across this a few weeks ago because it was discounted on the website. I have stomach issues so thought I would give it a try. I’m so glad I gave it a shot. The cost of putting this tea together would be substantial if buying the spices individually, so it’s nice to have them all together. And it works.
After reading up on these types of teas, I’ve learned that the longer you can steep it, the better it is (and the better it works). I would agree. I usually just get mine ready in the Timolino first thing in the morning and then it’s ready at lunchtime. Yup, I usually steep it between four and five hours. And it’s wonderful. I really enjoy the flavour, and I’m amazed at how well it works. If I sip on this all day, I don’t tend to suffer from my usual stomach problems (just general nausea and ickiness, nothing serious). It’s also nice after a Bikram class (even though drinking something hot after coming out a hot classroom can be difficult). It’s unfortunate that this has been discontinued. I’ve stocked up and hopefully it will last me a little while. I’ve gone through about 150g in the past month.
It’s become a very comforting flavour and aroma for me.
