Stabilise my Vata Dosha, Hava!
Another gracious sample from the gang at Tippity. I’m always very interested in medicinal teas, and I think this Ayurvedic blend would sit on my medicinal shelf for sure. After having two big mugs of it tonight after a night of poor sleep last night and a bit of anxiety, I’ll see how I feel in the morning, but right now I’m feeling super great.
This tisane has a lot of flavour to it and the one that wins is the sage, damn son. Sit down. Down in front. The citrus and lemongrass are an excellent balance to the blend. I can sense this is one I’d crave after a belly full of food, and can see how it’d bring about some calm.
Another one from the Monstrositea September box. I love Russian Caravan so I knew this would have to be AWFUL for me to dislike it, so yes it was tasty but it didn’t blow me away. I’ve had more delicious RCs recently.
What I did get outta this was the fun adventure of finally drinking RC with a sugar cube between my teeth! It’s a bit like a timtam slam in that the first sip or two is great but then you gotta move quickly or it’s going to explode in your mouth. Sugar crystals for all. I tried with both a brown cube and a white cube and the brown one was infinitely better… so I drank a few more.
This was my Spring Cleaning tea today, I did a big blitz (and drank about a litre of it) before welcoming the two cutest elderly English cousins staying in my guest room. Thanks Airbnb! Can I adopt these ones?
