Allergy Relief Tea by Physical GraffiTEA

I picked this up the other day when I was at the store and started to drink this today to see if it helps my allergies. It has red clover, plaintain leaf, elder flower, nettle, peppermint, licorice root, and hibiscus. I threw in a spoonful of raw honey for good measure. I let the infuser just sit in my travel mug for the duration of my 2 hour commute and now on a second steeping.

It doesn’t taste like much- just kind a general herbal taste. Maybe I’m just not familiar enough with the taste of the ingredients to pick out each one. I don’t taste peppermint at all and the licorice is just barely there. It’s not unpleasant or bitter, but it’s not something I would drink just for taste. Reserving judgment on it’s practicality until I drink for a few more days.

I run, I sing, I drink tea. That’s the best description I have of me.

I’ve always enjoyed tea, but have just started trying out a lot more loose teas and varied brands. I’m really excited about a site like steepster so I can read about what people think about different teas.

Oh and I really hate Lipton tea. There’s something just awful about it and I can’t understand why nearly every local diner only has Lipton.

Also I’m on the search for a full-bodied, fruity blackberry tea. So if you have any suggestions feel free to throw them my way! :-)
