When you feel like crap what do you drink?

Pretty straight forward.. when you feel like crap, what tea do you drink? Feel free to be as specific or generic as you want, and if possible include whether it is loose or bagged, and if you add sweetener! Thanks everyone!

Earl Grey. it was the first thing that came to mind really. it would have to be a good EG, coz crappy EG will only make me feel worse haha. if you want something accessible, Twinings EG (havent tried it loose). from my stash, i would grab my Stargazer EG or Special Blend…that reminds me. i gotta grab a cup now

and no, no sweetener or additives for me ;)

Graveyard Mist (green) from 52 Teas. It is looseleaf and I add sweetener.

Physically like crap? Pure ginger tea with honey.

Mentally like crap? Green oolong.

I feel like crap right now, and I am having pure ginger tea with cinnamon and honey. I hike to be able to crawl out from under the bed soon.

Adding cinnamon sounds lovely bu hope you feel better soon. :(

Chamomile is my go to… or a nice Ayurvedic India blend. Typically herbal though.. when sick and feeling under the weather.

Read My Lips or Tin Roof Tea’s Moroccan Mint, makes me feel instantly better! I see a theme with minty-ness.

I have a mixture of Upton’s Lemongrass and Spearmint teas that I’ll drink either plain or with honey. It resteeps well and is so calming.

Emotional stressy times usually call for dan cong. It reminds me of being by the ocean, which is my happy place. :)

If I feel physically like crap I make tea with fresh grated ginger, honey, and lemon juice. If I feel mentally like crap I like to make something chocolatey or desserty or highly caffeinated like mate!

Loose-leaf herbal tea. Usually Linden, Hibiscus, Fennel, Chamomile, Rose Hip or other traditional European herb infusions.
