Ugh. Worst. Migraine. EVER. last night. And it’s a mild, muted version of it today. Thank goodness for mint. I had a cup of this last night and a cup this morning, and it is helping ease the pain. Man, I really need straight peppermint tea, or spearmint. Which have people found more effective against headaches? I’m pleased with this tea because it also has a rich creaminess. I will have to stop by Davids for a few mint teas, and some Cold 911 again as well. See previous notes.

This is pretty much the only mint tea I like. I hope you feel better soon!

Oh, I hope you feel better. That always sucks. When I could do mint in quantity, I found peppermint to be better for headaches, but really, go with what you like best. :)

Migraines are the worst. Feel better!

Thanks everyone! I’m having a pretty miserable day at work too, so that isn’t helping. Thank goodness for tea!! My head feels a bit better at least, and knowing all you guys care means a lot right now :)

@OMGsrsly – thanks for the info! I will definitely pick up some straight peppermint tea soon :)

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.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.
