I woke up Sunday (2 days ago) morning with my head aching, my sinuses COMPLETELY blocked, so much so that I could not breathe through my nose let alone taste or smell anything. My voice was hoarse and I felt achy and awful. “Ah here we go, this is gonna be really bad”. You know that feeling when your on the verge of getting REAL sick? Yep, that was me. Well, I headed out to the mall (I was determined to pick up some tea at Teavana’s and no stinkin sickness was stopping me..and it was the only morning I had without three small kids to care for so I HAD to go if I wanted to shop in peace. Well, I stopped in Shopper’s Drug Mart and saw this. I already use the daily detox tea by Traditional Medicinals and know they make quality stuff. I picked this up and hit up Teavana for some tea and headed home. I proceeded to drink 2 bag cups all day long. I probably drank 5 or 6 cups (16 oz mug brewed with 2 bags for about 10-15 minutes) Well I tell you it’s a bloody miracle!! I am SURE this stuff kicked my immune system into high gear and I dodged a major bullet! i am a tiny bit stuffed up but NOTHING like Sunday! I can breath through my nose and my taste and smell came back the day after power drinking this stuff. If you feel yourself getting sick BUY THIS AND DRINK LOTS RIGHT AWAY! It works, it really does! I highly recommend this tea and it saved me from having to deal with a 6,5 and 2 year old while horribly ill..in other words it saved me from hell on earth lol. This will be my go to tea when I feel a bug coming on. And it tastes ok too!

When I was little, my mother swore by Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat whenever I was sick and it worked beautifully. DavidsTea has an herbal named Bravissimo and it’s similar enough that when I’m sick or my throat is just sore, it soothes like nothing else!

I am a total newbie to tea, having been a die-hard coffee drinker for years. Recently I quit smoking and found that coffee was making my cravings worse so I began trying out some tea.

Tazo Zen, Traditional Medicinals Daily Detox Lemon and Pukka Cleanse were the first teas I bought (bags). I liked all three and a new interest was born. I hopped on the computer to check out tea. I came across the website for Teavana and was awed at all the beautiful teas but upon doing research I found them to be very underhanded in a lot of ways. Davids seems to be the more reputable company.

Well turns out I’ll be shopping at both David’s and Teavana I think! I went out this past weekend and went to Teavana because it’s a lot closer to me (Newmarket) I bought a Perfect Teamaker (which I love!) , a nice 16 oz glass mug, a handy timer that sticks on the fridge and a very overpriced spoon but is also very pretty. Twiggy I think it’s called. I also bought some German rock sugar, I like it because it sweetens without being too overbearing and doesn’t alter the taste of the tea.

I also bought my first loose leaf tea!! 50g of Maharaja Chai Oolong (Love! love!) and Strawberry Blush Rose Oolong (Its good but not “wow”) Murphys Law gave me a kick in the butt though..I didn’t get to enjoy them! Well not right away. I came down, literally within several hours, with an awful cold! I drank Traditional Medicinals Echinacea Plus all day! No way I wanted to “waste” the good tea when I couldn’t even taste or smell anything!

Luckily the echinacea tea worked wonders and I was finally able to enjoy my tea yesterday! Brewing my first ever loose leaf tea was a huge joy to me. I took great care to brew it “perfectly” and actually did a really good job! My Maharaja Chai tasted even better then it did when I sampled it at Teavana! I got such a kick out of watching the tea steep and when my little fridge timer went off I was like a little kid all excited on Christmas lol.

Today I went to David’s and bought a 12 sample tea-set (Dessert box) oh delicious! I also picked up Gyrokuro, Dragon Pearls, Organic Detox and a Chai :) I’m one happy gal with all these awesome new teas to try! I’ve also decided that once I’ve found my favorite teas to order online (or buy on sale in store) because it looks like especially in Ontario, Canada where I live that it’s way cheaper to buy online. I love loose leaf tea and wish I’d quit smoking sooner so I’d have discovered this tea earlier lol. Jeez I didn’t mean to write a novel here, I’m excited about my new hobby :)
