I can finally add teas! Woohoo!

So I’m trying this tea because my allergies are a little out of control. I know it’s medicinal, but I enjoy the flavor as well. The peppermint and liquorice clear my nose a little. I’ve always liked the smell of clover and I’m starting to enjoy the nettles flavor.

Hopefully this helps!

I’ve been drinking my nettles every day. I can get away with skipping a day once in awhile if I don’t go outside, but I really notice the difference!

I’m hoping if I drink this constantly today, I’ll see improvement. So far, not so much. My skin is so itchy!!

Allergies make me feel prickly all over, inside & out. I feel irritated by the through & through. If you can get some straight nettles, drinking strong infusion of it is even more helpful: 1/4 cup leaf to 8 oz, boiling water, steep 2 — 8 hours. Then strain & enjoy. I usually steep mine overnight on the counter in a jar with a lid on it to keep the dust out.

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! :-)
