Oh, Steepster. My life is slowly returning to normal after a harrowing few days, and I feel that a tealog is a good step although I’m not feeling particularly eloquent. I spent a night in hospital thanks to a medication I was taking for a medical trial combined with a faulty insulin pump, and then the weekend trying to prevent myself from needing further hospitalization! My tea drinking has mostly been well-loved, comforting herbals while I was recovering from ketoacidosis which entails extreme dehydration (thanks, rooibos!).

Immediately before I got sick on Thursday, I picked this up at DT near work. Last night I thought I’d finally give it a try since my constitution had recovered at least partially and I needed some help getting the rest of the way. Turmeric is wonderful for inflammation, so this sounded about right.

It’s not terrible. It’s very earthy and very herbal, but I think it avoids tasting medicinal. I don’t like licorice but it doesn’t bother me too much in here. Mostly I get ginger, citrus, and spice. It also cleared out my sinuses, which I didn’t realize were at all congested, and made me feel pretty clear-headed. So that was nice. I think I would maybe buy some more to keep on hand when I need the help or think I’m getting sick, but it’s not something I would choose based on flavour. The man of the house didn’t want to finish his cup, but he ended up doing so anyway.
