Backlog from a couple days ago…I just got this tea and was recovering from a cold. So I thought Organic Lemon Aid would be just the thing for my poor scratchy throat. It is a tisane of lemon grass, ginger and some lemony herbs. The dry leaves look mostly like lemon grass and ginger and smell of lemon and ginger. It brews up to a well balanced lemony gingery goodness that I would love even if I wasn’t nursing a sore throat. It was great plain with it’s own sweetness but when I added a bit of manuka honey it was heaven. If Mary Poppins were to lone me her special magic tonic/medicine bottle this is exactly the flavor it would give me. I can’t wait to try it iced.

This sounds fantastic, especially as hot as it is here.

Bio

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
