I bought this two weeks ago when I was at the DAVIDsTEA on Bleecker St in NYC (woo! Vacation!). I bought it because I was starting to feel a tickle in my throat and I’m glad I did because a few days later it turned into a full blown cold. I drank only this for about a week straight and it was lifesaving. It was the only thing my stomach could handle (and it was a shame since I had also picked up about five other teas while I was there and barely had a chance to try them) and the eucalyptus was refreshing since well, I was barely able to breathe through my nose, yet alone smell anything. I also liked that it was so strong that I only had to steep it for a short time and got multiple steeps. This tea is definitely going to be a staple since I plan to keep it around for those times I’m feeling under the weather.
Bad colds require badass interventions. Take this tea, for example. It’s a deliciously soothing mix of peppermint, juniper berries and orange peel. Pretty badass, right? If that’s not extreme enough for you, you could try eating raw garlic, or gargling salt water, or inhaling lots of steam. Yeah…we didn’t think so. Probably better just to stick to the tea. With its soothing citrus and mint aroma we can’t guarantee miracle results, but at least we can guarantee it tastes great.
Ingredients: Organic: peppermint, juniper berries, orange peel. With natural eucalyptus and orange oil.
