Since I can’t really taste anything, I decided to at least make something warm and comforting. So, I put the tea bag into my mug, along with a little sweetener and a cinnamon stick. Strangely, I’ve never made tea with a cinnamon stick before. I poured boiling water over it all and let it steep. The result is very pleasant. I’m too sick to taste the black tea, but the cinnamon comes through and it’s nice. Reminds me of winter. I finally have a use for this bag of cinnamon sticks!!

Yes, congrats on 350 tasting notes! I don’t know if you’re particularly fond of ginger, but, if you want to taste … I recommend ginger. I actually love this product when I’m sick: http://popus.com/ginger-green-tea-instant-ginger-honey-crystals/ (The ginger honey crystals) … I found it at Whole Foods a couple of years ago, and I like to keep it on hand for when I am feeling sick, I just add it to my basic black tea and then I can taste the warming ginger. It makes me feel much better … it’s a temporary feel good feeling, but, when I’m sick I’ll take even just a few moments of feeling good.

LiberTEAS

Oh… and I hope you feel better soon!

I was just thinking about that, LiberTEAS! I meant to pick up a bit of ginger root from the grocery store. I would grate it and brew it with the tea. Now I might have to go out again, lol.

CupofTree, it’s awesome, and re-usable. I’ve just left it in the mug today and it’s been just as strong with each cup.

Bio

Quiet, strange, and in love with the world of tea. 20-something and living just outside of Atlanta. Cat lover, EBM/synthpop/industrial geek, balcony gardener, and collector of fossils. On the hunt for the perfect tea in each of my favorite categories.

I prefer black teas, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. My favorites tend to be yunnan tips, earl grey, golden monkey, chai, and keemun. My favorite add-ons are plum, cinnamon, coconut, apple, raspberry, bergamot, cucumber, sage, vanilla, and caramel.

I’m shy about green tea, curious about white, and learning to love oolong. I hate rooibos and anything with orchid, fennel, or jasmine.

I’m currently growing my own tea. I have a 3-year-old potted Camellia sinensis, and I plan on picking a tiny bit of new growth this spring for my first try at drying my own leaves.

Since joining, I’ve traded with: Kaliska, QueenOfTarts, LiberTEAS, JustJames, Spencer, Ninavampi, Jillian, Teafreak, KeenTeaThyme, and RachanaC (Rachel)-iHeartTeas.
