Ugh it’s been one of those weeks. Last week was the flu from hell (along with the six-day migraine). This week? Food poisoning. And migraine, of course. It’s been rough. I’m finally back at work. Folders and projects on my desk seem so foreign. What was that about?! <—me all AM Need a little kick, so I reach for my guayusa. Must try other incarnations of this wonderful tea!

Ay-yi-yi! Pace yourself; food poisoning is no fun! (Been there.)

Thanks – and here’s hoping! :)

ICK! I used to think I had food poisoning and found out it was an allergy to…nightshade foods. (My migraines give me flu-like symptoms though which also can feel like food poisoning so it was a long puzzle figuring out what I had!). Keep tabs around your migraines if this happens again. (BRAT) Bread, rice, apple and tea is the easiest on the stomach beginning with rice and tea.

Hope you feel better soon!

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
