So everyone in the house is getting the stomach flu… So this tea was required today. Hoping I don’t get it, it’s a darn nasty one. I steeped it for me and mom to try to protect us both, steeped for quite a while probably 8 or 9 mins. Max mint! See previous notes on this tea.

swallow a couple of small cloves of garlic, that’ll help to kill it. Also, eating apples helps with a stomach bug. The pectin seems to help sooth the gut, and if you can’t keep them down, at least it won’t taste bad. Slippery elm bark tea is also helpful.

Thanks for the suggestions! I had a lot of garlic in spaghetti tonight so maybe I’ll have a bit more, if I can find small cloves that is :) and i’ll keep apples in mind too!

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
