I bought some of this from my local Target during the worst days of my cold earlier in the week. My favorite sick time beverage is freshly grated ginger root, boiled and strained, combined with some lemon juice and honey. I thought this would be a nice EASIER alternative for when I’m out of or too lazy to grate fresh ginger. The flavor is not quite as nice as fresh, but this sure works in a pinch! Ginger is SO soothing for sore throats!

I’m glad your cold is at least on its way out!

I’m FINALLY starting to feel slightly better from my cold, YAY! And I’ve been craving puerh like crazy lately. This one is particularly clean tasting, though I haven’t quite got my sense of taste back yet…I’m still enjoying it :)

Courtney

Getting better, yes!

Sil

Stephanie

drank Special Dark by Mandala Tea

I’m not going to be doing much tea reviewing till I get over this cold, but I assure you I am doing LOTS of tea drinking! Anyway, I’m drinking this one today. It is very soothing, and also puts me a little bit closer to making my Mandala order I’ve been planning, which is exciting :D

Starfevre

Mandala orders are great. He’s such a nice guy. Hope you feel better soon.

TheTeaFairy

I so agree with Starfevre, just placed my first order last week and Garret was such a sweetheart!
Feel better soon Stephanie…

Kamyria

Feel better soon!! :)

Stephanie

thanks you guys! :)

Ugh I’m sick! I woke up with a bad cold today. So no tasting new teas until my palate recovers. I’ve been drinking this gongfu style from my new adorable tea pot all morning. Amazingly enough I can actually sort of taste the tangy goodness :)

Kamyria

Oh, I ordered this yesterday… can’t wait for it to arrive. I hope you feel better soon!! :)

Stephanie

You will love it! And thanks :D

boychik

greenteafairy

Sil

Thanks for this one Starfevre!

Man, I don’t know what to make of this one. Its like you dump a cup of black caramel tea in with a cup of green jasmine and drink them together. My brain just doesn’t know what to make of it! :-O

drank Valentines by Adagio Teas

I got this nice bonus surprise sample yesterday in a swap with Starfevre YAY! :D

This tea seems somewhat mediocre straight, which is all I do at work anymore. I’ll have to try it again at home with sugar and (maybe) milk! I bet that would really make it pop :)

Sip down of my Oolong version of this tea. I think I have a cup or 2 left of the Zhen Qu version that someone generous around here sent me as a gift. I’ve really been enjoying this tea but I think when I’m done with it I’ll be happy to move on to something else and not re-stock. Totally enjoyed it though! Just burnt out-ish.

Flavors: Cinnamon

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 3 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Weird timing that I chose this tea this morning, and then saw *boychik*’s post under Misc Sales that they are doing free shipping right now with a coupon code. I only have one serving left! TEMPTING!!! I love this tea’s almond-pastry goodness, but…I really need to continue to sip down what I’ve already got in my stash before it gets out of control. Anyway, if YOU love this tea and want more you might want to get some today!

Flavors: Baked Bread, Nuts

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
Stephanie

WAIT, the free shipping code seems to have expired YESTERDAY!

boychik

Stephanie

It’s ok…I really didn’t NEED more tea anyway. This just helped me maintain my buying hiatus :)

boychik

boychik
